“I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt Syndrome. It’s from this virus that’s attacking the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has resulted in paralysis of my face,” Justin – who battled Lyme disease for years – said in the social media clip, revealing one side of his face is stationary. “As you can see, that eye doesn’t blink. I can’t smile on this side of my face. This nostril will not move.”

He continued, “I’m just not physically able to do them. This is pretty serious as you can see. I wish that wasn’t the case. But obviously my body is telling me to slow down.”

The ‘Yummy’ actor, who is currently starring on its headliner Justice World TourHe announced that he would be taking time off from the show to rest and recover in order to “become again what I was born to be.” Justin shared that he has started doing facial exercises to further aid in his recovery.

“It was getting harder and harder to eat, which was extremely frustrating,” the Grammy winner added in an Instagram Story update later in the day. “Please pray for me.”

Justin’s health challenge comes three months after Hailey was hospitalized with a blood clot in her brain. Stephen Baldwin‘s daughter later revealed in an April YouTube video that she had been diagnosed with a grade 5 PFO – patent foramen ovale, a valve-like opening in the heart that was repaired with surgery.

“Justin was worried sick,” a source said exclusively Us weekly in March of the “Baby” singer, noting that he spent “every moment” next to the Rhode beauty entrepreneur. “[He] feels very out of control of the situation.”

The musician, who married Hailey in 2018, broke his silence about her seizure-like health scare during his live show in Denver, Colorado on March 16.

“It’s kind of crazy how life throws you curveballs at random. You can’t really control much,” Justin said between songs at the time. “Most of you probably know or have seen the news about my wife … but she’s fine, she’s good, she’s strong.”
