Justin Bieber kicked off 2020 with a number of exciting activations geared around his return to the music scene. These included single ‘Yummy,’ a tour announcement, and the trailer for upcoming YouTube documentary ‘Seasons.’
Ahead of the latter, a new report has revealed that he’ll open up about a secret illness he’s been quietly battling.
Per TMZ, the Pop star has been diagnosed with Lyme Disease.
Word is that the doc will see him share that he started experiencing “scary symptoms” in 2019. These include, but aren’t limited rashes, headaches, fever and fatigue.
Perhaps even more worrying, he’ll unpack, is the fact that the condition went undiagnosed for much of the year – until doctors finally discovered the cause in recent months.
According to the same report, it’s not known how Bieber contracted Lyme Disease. But it typically is transferred by way of a tick bite.
For worried fans, the sentiment from camp Bieber is to fret not because he’s in much better shape now he has the medication required.
Other notable names fighting the condition include Shania Twain and Avril Lavigne.
UPDATE: JB has updated with a statement of his own, stressing that he’s not on meth. But instead affected by Lyme disease.
