Recently, Justin Bieber has had to put some shows on hold due to an illness that he is fighting. Now, Justin has revealed more about the illness that has caused part of his face to be paralyzed.

Justin said, “As you can probably see from my face, I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome and it is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves.” He continued, “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.” He added, “So for those who are frustrated by my cancellations of the next shows, I’m just physically not capable of doing them. This is pretty serious, as you can see. I wish this wasn’t the case, but obviously, my body’s telling me I gotta slow down and I hope you guys understand.”

Ramsay Hunt is when shingles occurs in the inner ear and can be quite painful.
