Justin Bieber announced Friday that he is taking a break from performing because he is suffering from paralysis on one side of his face.
Justin Bieber posted on his verified Instagram account explaining that he has Ramsay Hunt syndrome, which has left him unable to move half of his face.
"It is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis," he said in the video.
"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
"This is pretty serious, as you can see. I wish this wasn't the case, but, obviously, my body's telling me I've got to slow down," he said.
"I hope you guys understand. I'll be using this time to just rest and relax and get back to a hundred percent so that I can do what I was born to do," he said in a video
"It's going to be ok," he said. "I have hope, and I trust God." at the end of the video.
In March, his wife Hailey Bieber was hospitalized due to a small blood clot in her brain.
The model later explained that she had suffered a mini-stroke due to a small hole in her heart from which the clot traveled to her brain.
