Justin Bieber has finally given fans an update on his Ramsay Hunt syndrome diagnosis, and some fans were shocked at what they saw. 

Nine months after singer Justin Bieber shared the symptoms of his diagnosis, it seems like the 29-year old singer has given fans the update they were hoping for. 

Back in 2022, the “Peaches” singer revealed that he was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome. This is an outbreak that affects the facial nerves near the ears and can result in paralysis. After the initial diagnosis, Bieber shared an update on how it affected him. 

At the time, Bieber went on to explain why he had to press pause on his current tour, as he expressed how he physically felt he was unable to perform in any shape or form- and rightfully so. Doctors noted that the singer had to get some rest and that’s ultimately what he did.

He continued in the video saying “This is pretty serious as you can see. I wish this wasn’t the case but obviously my body is telling me I have to slow down. I hope you guys understand and I’ll be using this time to just rest and relax and get back to 100 percent so I can do what I was born to do.”

One week later from the initial post, Justin’s wife Hailey Bieber, appeared on Good Morning America and revealed the singer was “feeling a lot better”

She continued saying “I’m just grateful that he’s fine. The support has been really amazing just from fans, friends, family. Every single person has sent well wishes, advice, recommendations. It’s actually been really amazing.” Justin later gave an update in June of 2022 saying that “this storm shall pass.”

And now nine months later, Justin shared another positive update to all of his fans. Posting a video of his full face on an Instagram story this week, the singer showed how he regained the full mobility in his face again. 

Wait for it…” he captioned the video, which saw him looking around with a straight face before grinning excitedly at the phone camera. Many fans online were overjoyed to see the singer with bright spirits and overalled thrilled at the update. 

Some fans however, were really hoping that Justin Bieber would give everyone an update on the canceled tour from the month prior. Fans saw the “Purpose” tour drastically canceled with many disappointed seeing that this concert series was delayed several times across the globe. 

Fans even saw Justin’s birthday go by without an update on the tour as well. Fans have eagerly awaited for some form of update even from Justin Bieber on the Selena and Hailey drama that fans have brewed online.
