He then demonstrated that he cannot blink his right eye or smile with the right side of his mouth. Justin apologetically shared with his fans that he will have to cancel his upcoming shows due to his health condition.
“For those who are frustrated by my cancellations of the next shows, I’m just physically, obviously, not capable of doing them,” he said. “This is pretty serious as you can see. I wish this wasn’t the case, but obviously my body is telling me that I’ve got to slow down.

Bieber thanked his fans for being “patient” with him as he recovers. Ramsay Hunt syndrome “occurs when a shingles outbreak affects the facial nerve near one of your ears,” according to the Mayo Clinic.
The virus can cause facial paralysis and hearing loss.
