The ‘Sorry’ singer was even forced to cancel tour dates after suffering temporary facial paralysis from Ramsay Hunt syndrome.

This is caused by the same virus as chickenpox – which becomes reactivated after laying dormant for years and leads to inflammation and irritation on the facial nerves, as per Mayo Clinic.

In an Instagram post, Bieber shows his face visibly twitching as he explains to fans information about his condition.

In the video, he is seen attempting to smile, blink, and move his face. However, one side remains still as he continues to speak.

This obviously left fans concerned for Bieber’s health.

At the time, the pop star said: “Obviously as you can probably see with my face.

“I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome and it is from this virus that attacks the nerves in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis.”

In response, fans took to the comments and shared their support.

One fan wrote: “Sad news. Love you, Justin Bieber, you take all the time you need to get better get well soon.”

Another added: “Sending prayers, get better soon dude.”
