In a video posted on Instagram, Bieber said he had contracted Ramsay Hunt syndrome, which affected nerves in his ear and face. He noted that his right eye was not blinking, adding, “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.”
