Being a celebrity who is going through a tough time can be hard — everyone’s wondering what is happening to you and your fans are eager to know why you have temporarily stepped back from the limelight.
Such was what Justin Bieber experienced, so he updated everyone on what he is currently dealing with.
The singer took to Instagram to shed light on his appearance, which judgmental people assumed was because he was using an illegal substance. Apparently, Justin is battling the incurable Lyme disease, which is contracted from an infected tick bite, and chronic mono, which caused his health to deteriorate.
The 25-year-old further lambasted those who poked fun at him without knowing that doctors were struggling to diagnose him. Despite the harsh words, Justin shared that fortunately, he now knows what he is going through and that he is now getting the proper treatment.
The Sorry hitmaker also assured his fans that he will be coming back better. While Justin quietly felt emotional distraught stemming from the misdiagnosis of his illness in the past years, his wife Hailey Baldwin never left his side.
In fact, the Victoria’s Secret Angel even went after the trolls who laughed at Justin’s revelation. Hailey schooled the uninformed and told them to stop mocking her husband for his disease when they don’t have any idea of what a patient is going through.
The 22-year-old also expressed gratitude to her friends and co-models Gigi and Bella as well as their mom Yolanda for helping her understand Lyme disease and for informing her of possible course of action to take. Hailey also gave a shout-out to singer Avril Lavigne for spreading awareness about the oftentimes misconceived condition.
The Hadid Family’s Health Battle
Yolanda, along with her kids Bella and Anwar, is suffering from Lyme disease, which all of them have been vocal about. There was even a drama surrounding the matriarch’s admission that her kids were suffering from the same illness.
Lisa Vanderpump infamously hinted during one episode of the Real Housewives that her costar Yolanda was lying about the state of the health of Anwar and Bella after Mohammed Hadid said they were fine. However, the patriarch clarified that his statement was taken out of context.
Yolanda has always been open about what she and her family have been battling. The reality star once narrated how they raised their kids in a farm filled with horses, which she felt was where they contracted the disease.
