As part of his ‘Justice World Tour’, which began in San Diego, California, on February 18, 2022, Justin Bieber is scheduled to travel to more than 30 countries and perform in 125 shows by the time it ends in March 2023.
Toronto: Canadian pop star Justin Bieber posted a video on Instagram on Friday, informing fans that he has been diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, a condition that causes partial facial paralysis.
Hours before he was slated to perform in Toronto, the 28-year-old pop singer announced he was pausing his Justice World Tour because of illness.
The Ramsay Hunt Syndrome occurs when shingles affect the facial nerve near one ear. This can result in facial paralysis as well as hearing loss.
In the video, Bieber said: “As you can see, this eye is not blinking, I can’t smile on this side of my face, this nostril will not move.”
“So, there’s full paralysis on this side of my face. So for those who are frustrated by my cancellations of the next shows, I’m just physically, obviously, not capable of doing them. This is pretty serious, as you can see,” he added.
According to the singer, he has been doing facial exercises and taking time to “rest and relax and get back to 100 per cent so I can do what I was born to do.”

The ‘Peaches’ singer, however, did not provide an estimated time frame for his recovery.
It is the third time he has postponed his tour, the other two were due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
