Justin Bieber has suspended his world tour after suffering “exhaustion”.
The 28-year-old postponed a series of concerts earlier this year after being diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome and he has now revealed via his social media that he’s stepping back from touring to focus on his health.
The singer who performed in Brazil over the weekend said on his Instagram Story: “Earlier this year, I went public about my battle with Ramsay-Hunt Syndrome, where my face was partly paralyzed. As a result of this illness, I was not able to complete the North America leg of the Justice Tour. After resting and consulting with my doctors, family and team, I went to Europe in an effort to continue with the tour. I performed six live shows, but it took a real toll on me.
“This past weekend, I performed at Rock in Rio and I gave everything I have to the people in Brazil. After getting off stage, the exhaustion overtook me and I realized I need to make my health the priority right now. So I’m going to take a break from touring for the time being. I’m going to be OK, but I need time to rest and get better. (sic)”
Justin also thanked his fans for their recent support.
He wrote: “I’ve been so proud to bring this show and our message of Justice to the world. Thank you for your prayers and support throughout all of this! I love you all passionately!”
