Celebrity Justin Bieber has postponed his Justice Tour and fans are disappointed. However, the Canadian born pop star went on social media on Friday and posted a video showing the rare condition he was suffering from and called it a “pretty serious virus.” He was forced to cancel shows both in DC and the other in Toronto.
In the video, Justin Bieber explained that a rare virus causes a condition called Ramsay Hunt syndrome. This condition affects the nerves present in the face and can cause partial paralysis. Facial paralysis is seen after a shingles outbreak affects the nerve in the face near the ear, according to medical experts.
He demonstrated his condition in the video and showed viewers that one of his eyes was not blinking and he couldn’t smile on one side of his face. He also said that a nostril would not move and that there was “paralysis on the side of my face.”
The 28-year old celebrity star also said that it was “pretty serious” and he said that he wished that it wasn’t so but it was obvious that his body was telling him that he had to “slow down.” He also said that they didn’t know how much time it would take but that he would be ok.
He asked his fans to understand his situation. He said that he would use the time to rest and relax, so that he could “get back to a hundred percent” and continue to do what he “was born to do.”
Wife Hailey Bieber, who had recovered from a mild stroke in March and later underwent surgery to close a hole that was present in her heart, commented with love and encouragement for her husband. Fans also replied to his post and commented with words of encouragement and love for the star.
Earlier in the week, the pop star’s Justice World Tour had announced the postponement of three shows. He was scheduled to play in Washington DC and Toronto, followed by shows in New York and Las Vegas, in the coming weeks. He was also expected to conduct live shows in Europe and other countries of the world by the end of the year, most of which are expected to be postponed or might even be canceled.
