In June this year, the 28-year-old shared with the world that he had been diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome. The disease, a rare neurological disorder, has left one side of his face paralysed. Bieber has not only cancelled his India trip but also Chile, Argentina, Brazil, South Africa, Bahrain, UAE and Israel.
The singer posted a video on Instagram. He said he had contracted Ramsay Hunt syndrome, which affected nerves in his ear and face. Bieber noted that his right eye was not blinking, adding “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.”
Stating that he was physically unable to perform his upcoming shows, he added that he was doing facial exercises and expected to recover. “It will go back to normal,” Justin Bieber said. “It’s just time, and we don’t know how much time that’s going to be.”
Justin Bieber had 70 shows set to run until March 2023 in South America, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Europe.
