Singer Justin Bieber reveals facial paralysis after shows cancelled

After canceling gigs this week, singer Justin Bieber announced he is suffering from facial paralysis.

In an Instagram video, the 28-year-old said that her illness is caused by a diagnosis of Ramsay Hunt syndrome.

“This eye isn’t blinking, as you can see. On this side of my face, I’m unable to grin… So this half of my face is completely paralyzed,” he explained.

According to medical professionals, Ramsay Hunt syndrome occurs when a shingles epidemic damages the facial nerve between the ears.

Bieber’s Justice World Tour, which began in February, revealed earlier this week that three gigs will be rescheduled.

“It’s from this virus that targets the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and causes my face to be paralyzed,” the musician, who was born in Canada, said in the three-minute video, pointing to the right side of his face.

He pleaded for patience from his followers and stated that he is “physically, obviously, not capable of executing” his next gigs.

He also smiled and blinked, demonstrating to his 240 million Twitter followers that the right half of his face remained still.
