Justin Bieber revealed on Friday hat he's been diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, which is causing him partial facial paralysis. In a video posted on Instagram, the pop singer said this was the reason his concert was postponed.

Bieber's post comes after he cancelled his shows in Toronto and Washington. The singer demonstrated in the video that he could barely move one side of his face, calling the ailment pretty serious.

"So, there's full paralysis on this side of my face. So for those who are frustrated by my cancellations of the next shows, I'm just physically, obviously, not capable of doing them. This is pretty serious, as you can see,” he said.

Bieber said he's unsure how long he'll take to heal, and added that he will be using this time to relax and rest.

Bieber was scheduled to perform in new Delhi on October 18, as part of his Justice World Tour. The tour will head to over 30 countries from May 2022 through March 2023.
