No Longer Able To Sing? Justin Bieber Fears He Could Lose His Voice Due To Health Issue
Justin Bieber fears he might no longer be able to sing and perform again as the syndrome could ignite the end of his career., the upcoming July 4 issue of National Enquirer reported.
Bieber made fans worry - and he still does - when he revealed in a video that he postponed three shows on his 2022 Justice World Tour after he was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt syndrome.
He also showed clear signs of partial facial paralysis in the clip in question, which he also uploaded on Instagram.
However, according to National Enquirer, the singer is said to be afraid that his voice would be changed by the Ramsay Hunt syndrome diagnosis.
The news outlet interviewed several experts who explained the effects of facial paralysis on Bieber's health and career.
A Florida-based expert, Dr. Gabe Mirkin, said that it is possible Hailey Bieber's husband will not recover fully and sufficiently. If that happens, he will no longer be able to sing again the way he used to.
"It's up to 50 percent probable he'll permanently have weak cheek muscles on one side of his face," he went on.
It was similar to what New York-based internist Dr. Stuart Fischer said, saying that the long-term effects of the condition could negatively affect his career.
Amid the reported fears, it is worth noting that both Bieber and his wife remain positive. In fact, their health issues made them more unbreakable.

This year has not been easy for the couple as they suffered health issues.
In March, Hailey faced a ministroke after a blood clot traveled from her heart to her brain. She underwent surgery to correct her Grade 5 PFO.
Months later, Bieber revealed he was diagnosed with the dreaded facial paralysis.
"Obviously, as you can probably see from my face, I have 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," he said.
According to the National Organization for Rare Disorders, Justin Bieber's health issue is a rare neurological disorder caused by the varicella-zoster virus (VZV), the same virus that causes chickenpox in children and shingles (herpes zoster) in adults.
It is widely known that the virus causes highly contagious chickenpox and shingles. But Healthline clarified that the Ramsay Hunt Syndrome itself is not infectious on its own.
Fortunately, they also have their fans and supporters who make their battles easier to face.
