Justin Bieber postpones US tour as he battles facial paralysis

Justin Bieber announced a week ago the cancellation of some of his concerts after suffering facial paralysis caused by a virus. The singer posted a video on his Instagram account explaining to his 242 million followers that he had been diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome and showing how it had affected the mobility of his face. Now, the 28-year-old Canadian artist has announced that he has made the decision to cancel the rest of the concerts he had scheduled in the United States for the time being. “In view of Justin’s recovery process, the remaining shows of the tour Justice Tour in the US scheduled for June and early July will be postponed, ”reads the statement they have published from the official account of the tour.

Regarding the singer’s state of health, they point out that “he continues to receive the best possible medical attention” and that he is “optimistic about his recovery and is eager to return to the stage and perform for his fans abroad at the end of the summer.”

“It is with a heavy heart that we are saddened to make this announcement regarding the #justicetour. We send you lots of love and prayers for a speedy recovery. We are always here cheering you on”, reads the caption of the publication, where they also indicate that the details of the rescheduled dates in the United States will be made public shortly.

Bieber spoke for the first time about his diagnosis on June 10, in a video in which he explained the movement difficulties he had on the right side of his face: he could only smile with one side of his mouth, his eye did not blink and He pointed out that the paralysis had also affected his hearing. “As you can probably see from my face, I have a syndrome called Ramsay Hunt. This virus attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to be paralyzed,” he commented. “This eye is not blinking. I can’t smile with this side of my face, this nostril doesn’t move, so I have complete paralysis on this side of my face.”

He continued to address his fans affected by the postponement of his upcoming concerts. “Physically I am not able to do them. This is pretty serious, as you can see. I wish this wasn’t the case, but obviously my body is telling me to slow down. I hope you understand and I will spend this time to rest and relax and get back to 100% so I can do what I was born to do,” she said. “Meanwhile, this is not all. I have to rest so I can get my face back where it’s supposed to be.” She ended the video thanking the support and assured that she was doing everything possible to “improve”.

The news of Justin Bieber came shortly after his wife, model Hailey Bieber, 25, suffered a minor stroke last March, for which she had to be hospitalized. According to a source close to the couple to the magazine People They are dealing with a lot, but they are supporting each other through their recent health problems. “Between Hailey’s scare earlier this year and now this, it’s a lot for them. Hailey is also worried, ”she has pointed out. “Just like Justin did everything he could to take care of Hailey, she now does the same for him. They are a great team and they will get through this together. Justin is looking forward to recovering and continuing to work.”

“He’s doing great, he’s getting better every day. It feels much better. It was obviously a very scary situation, but he’s going to be totally fine. I am grateful that she is well”, commented the model a couple of days ago on the television program Good Morning America, in which he also thanked the support received by fans, friends and family.
