Justin Bieber Contracted Lyme Disease
"It's been a rough couple years but getting the right treatment that will help treat this so-far, incurable disease"
As previously reported, Bieber is about to release a documentary series called Seasons, and according to TMZ's sources who have already seen the series, he reveals his diagnosis with Lyme disease — an infectious and very problematic disease spread by ticks.
UPDATE: Bieber has now taken to Instagram to confirm that he's indeed been battling Lyme disease. You can see his post below.
While a lot of people kept saying justin Bieber looks like shit, on meth etc. they failed to realize I've been recently diagnosed with Lyme disease, not only that but had a serious case of chronic mono which affected my, skin, brain function, energy, and overall health. These things will be explained further in a docu series I'm putting on YouTube shortly.. you can learn all that I've been battling and OVERCOMING!! It's been a rough couple years but getting the right treatment that will help treat this so far incurable disease and I will be back and better than ever NO CAP
In the documentary, Bieber reportedly discusses frightening symptoms he endured in 2019, explaining that he spent much of the year being undiagnosed as doctors struggled to find out what was wrong.
It wasn't until late last year that Bieber discovered he had been battling Lyme disease, which has symptoms that include rashes, headaches, fever and extreme fatigue, among others.
According to TMZ, Bieber is unsure where and exactly when he contracted the disease.
Ironically, the Ottawa Public Health used an image of Bieber in 2018 to show people how to prevent tick bites.
On the plus side, Bieber is reportedly doing well since being diagnosed. After all, he not only has a new album coming out, but he's heading out on a big North American tour. Plus, he just released his new single "Yummy."
