Pop icon Justin Bieber has been forced to cancel a number of concerts in his upcoming European tour due to a rare medical condition.
Bieber took to his Instagram account yesterday to post a video to fans explaining he has Ramsay Hunt Syndrome.
In the three minute video he said:
As you can probably see from my face I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt Syndrome. It attacks the nerve in my ear and facial nerves, and has caused my face to have paralysis.
As you can see my eye’s not blinking, I can’t smile on this side of my face, this nostril will not move.
So for everybody frustrated by the cancellation of my upcoming shows, I’m just not physically capable of doing them.
It’s pretty serious as you can see. I wish this wasn’t the case. Obviously my body’s telling me I gotta slow down. I hope you guys understand.
