Last month, the “Yummy” singer had been diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome and posted a video showing how one side of his face was experiencing facial paralysis, prompting him to call off the U.S. portion of his worldwide Justice tour.
Justin was spotted out and about with his wife, Hailey Bieber, over the last few weeks, prompting many fans to ask how Justin has been doing, especially with the international leg of his tour scheduled to start later this month. Fortunately, it seems Usher has an answer.

Earlier this year, Hailey had been rushed to the hospital herself after experiencing stroke-like symptoms. Fans were shocked that both members of the Bieber family are experiencing such rare and serious illnesses at such a young age. Fortunately, Hailey found the “silver lining” in their health struggles.
“Going through it very publicly in front of a lot of people… it kind of almost forces you to be upfront about what’s going on so people understand what you’re going through,” she explained, adding, “I actually think it opened up a lot of important and amazing conversations.”
She said that it has also helped her relationship with Justin, saying, “being there for each other and supporting each other and there’s just something that really bonds you through these times.”

Back in June, the Canadian pop star took to Instagram to say that he “Wanted to share a little bit of how I’ve been feelin.” Over the weekend, he said that he was having difficulty eating and asked fans to pray for him.
“Each day has gotten better and through all of the discomfort I have found comfort in the one who designed me and knows me,” he continued. “I’m reminded he knows all of me. He knows the darkest parts of me that I want no one to know about and he constantly welcomes me into His loving arms.”
Justin added that “this perspective has given me peace during this horrific storm that I’m facing.” He concluded, “I know this storm will pass but in the meantime JESUS IS WITH ME.”
In the caption of the since-deleted post, the Canadian singer wrote, “By this point in my life I realize storms come and go. Jesus continues to remind me that he is with me in the midst of the storm.
“It’s not about the storm,” he added. “It’s that we are NEVER ALONE AND HE UNDERSTANDS. 😭😭😭😭.”
