Canadian singer-songwriter Justin Bieber postponed the rest of his US tour dates on Friday, days after revealing that he is undergoing treatment for Ramsay Hunt syndrome, the rare virus that has left his face paralyzed.  

“In light of Justin’s ongoing recovery, the remaining U.S. tour shows scheduled for June and early July will be postponed,” read a statement on the artist’s ‘Justice Tour’ Instagram handle.

“With a heavy heart, it saddens us to make this announcement about the #justicetour. We are sending you lots of love and prayers for a speedy recovery. We are always here cheering you on,” the caption read.

“As you can see, this eye is not blinking. I can’t smile on this side of my face. This nostril will not move. So there’s full paralysis on the side of my face,” Bieber said as he described his medical condition in a two-and-a-half minute video uploaded on Instagram. 

“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 added.

“I’ve done everything to get better but my sickness is getting worse … To all my people I love you so much and I’m gonna rest and get better!” he concluded in the video.
