Justin Bieber revealed last week that he had been diagnosed with Ramsey Hunt Syndrome, a rare neurological disorder characterized by paralysis of the facial nerve. It is caused by the virus that causes chickenpox and shingles. The syndrome has left one side of his face paralyzed.
As a result of his condition Bieber had to cancel a few shows that he had scheduled. While explaining and showing why he had to cancel the shows he said, “This is pretty serious as you can see. I wish this wasn’t the case. But obviously, my body is telling me I need to slow down. I hope you guys understand.”
Hailey said that Justin is getting better
Justin’s wife Hailey visited Good Morning America earlier this week to discuss her new skincare line Rhode. During her visit she gave an update on the pop singer’s current condition.
Hailey said that Justin is getting better and that he’ll be fine, “He’s feeling a lot better. It’s a very scary and random situation but he will be okay and fine.”
Hailey also talked about her own health issues. She suffered a mini-stroke earlier this year that required a procedure to close a hole in her heart.
“I feel a lot better after that situation…I had a procedure done to close this hole in my heart,” Hailey said of her own health issues. She continued, “It was a little hard for me to recover from the procedure, just giving myself the time to be able workout again and feel like normal. But I’m doing well now.”
Given that they’ve both had health issues this year, the model and business woman, addressed the impact that it has had on their relationship, “I think the silver lining of it, honestly, is that it brings us a lot closer. You’re going through this together, you’re being there for each other, you’re supporting each other. There’s just something that really bonds you through these times.”
Hailey and Justin were married in November of 2018 after a brief engagement that began in July of the same year. Prior to reconciling and marrying in 2018 the two dated for a couple of months from December of 2015 into January of 2016.
