Superstar Justin Bieber was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome this week. Ramsay Hunt syndrome is a rare disorder caused by the chickenpox virus that causes paralysis in the face.
The diagnosis comes just three months after Justin Bieber’s wife, Hailey Beiber, had a stroke that was induced by a blood clot in her brain.

“Justin Bieber is experiencing paralysis in his face after being diagnosed with a rare disorder.
“I wanted to update you guys on what’s been going on. Obviously, as you can probably see from my face, I have, a, this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome and it is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis,” the pop star, 28, said in an Instagram video posted Friday.
According to New York’s Mount Sinai hospital, Ramsay Hunt syndrome is marked by a painful rash around the ear, on the face or on the mouth. It manifests when the varicella-zoster virus infects a nerve in the head, sometimes causing paralysis.
“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 this side of my face,” Bieber continued, gesturing to the right side of his face.”
Researchers in Hong Kong found a link between Ramsay Hunt syndrome and the Covid-19 vaccine. The researchers did a case study of a 37-year-old healthy man who was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome just two days after receiving the Covid-19 vaccine
Resarchers at the University of College London also found a link between the Covid-19 and blood clot induced strokes. The AstraZeneca vaccine is not authorized for use in the United States due to reports of blood clots. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine was also paused in the United States due to reports of blood clots.
While neither celebrity has openly discussed their vaccination status, Justin Bieber required proof of covid-19 vaccination to attend his concerts earlier this year and last year.
