Justin Bieber believes his body might be telling him to “slow down” with a severe virus that has affected the nerves in his right ear and a section of his face, causing paralysis on the right side of his face.
The Canadian singer shared his diagnosis of Ramsay Hunt Syndrome in an Instagram video on Friday as he demonstrated his inability to fully smile or even blink his right eye.
“This is pretty serious as you can see I wish this wasn’t the case, but obviously my body is telling me I gotta slow down,” he added.
Needing time to rest and recover, Justin explained that his condition is the reason why he postponed several shows. However, there is no saying when he will regain complete control over his face, but he has faith.
“It’s gonna be ok and I have hope and I trust God and I trust that…. it’s all for a reason,” he said.
The singer apologized to his fans while reassuring them that he is battling the virus by doing facial exercises.
“For those who are frustrated by my cancellation of the next shows I’m just physically obviously not capable of doing them,” he stated.
The video that requests prayers have received over 32 million views with over 300,000 love and well wishes from supporters.
Justin Bieber’s Justice World Tour, which started in February, had faced small setbacks when Justin and his wife, Hailey Bieber, tested positive for COVID-19.
