Justin Bieber suffers from facial paralysis and cancels several tour dates

On a video shared on social networks, the Canadian singer announces that he suffers from Ramsay Hunt syndrome, which pralyses part of his face.

Singer Justin Bieber, who has just canceled two concert dates in Toronto (Canada), announced on his Instagram account this Friday that he was suffering from a rare syndrome paralyzing one side of his face, forcing him to cancel the following his tour.

“Hello everyone (…) as you can see on my face, I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt”, explains the world star on a video posted on his account to 240 million subscribers.

“There is complete paralysis on this side of my face,” continues the Canadian, showing that he can only blink with one eye, or smile with only one side of his mouth.

“So for those who are frustrated with the cancellations of my upcoming shows, I’m just not physically able to do them. It’s pretty serious as you can see,” adds the 28-year-old singer.

A tour postponed twice

While his Justice World Tour was to stop Monday and Tuesday in New York, at the famous Madison Square Garden, then continue on several dates in the United States before leaving for Europe, Justin Bieber gave no indication of a resumption of his tour.

It had already been postponed twice due to the pandemic and the cancellation of the concerts in Toronto angered some fans on social media.

The Canadian singer had been nominated in eight categories at the Grammy Awards this year but he had not won any awards. He received two throughout his career.

Ramsay Hunt syndrome is a complication of shingles that occurs when a flare-up affects the facial nerve near one ear. In addition to facial paralysis, it can cause hearing loss.

The “Peaches” singer said he does facial exercises and takes time to “rest and relax and get back to 100 percent.”
