After cancelling gigs this week, singer Justin Bieber announced he is suffering from facial paralysis.
The 28-year-old said in an Instagram video that the condition is due to a diagnosis of Ramsay Hunt syndrome.
“As you can see this eye is not blinking.
I can’t smile on this side of my face… So there’s full paralysis on this side of my face,” he said.
Earlier this week, Bieber’s Justice World Tour – which began in February – announced three shows would be postponed.
The inability of patients to close one eyelid can also cause eye pain and blurred vision, the organisation says, adding that it is most common in people over 60 years old.
In March, the singer’s wife, Hailey Bieber, was admitted to the hospital due to a blood clot in her brain.
