Bieber, who had resumed his Justice World Tour in July, said in his post that after sharing that he had the syndrome, which left his face partially paralyzed, he was able to complete the North American leg of his concert tour.
“After resting and consulting with my doctors, family and team, I went to Europe in an effort to continue the tour,” the statement read. “I did six live shows, but it really took its toll on me.”
After a performance at Rock in Rio in Brazil, Bieber wrote, “the tiredness got the best of me and I realized that I need to make my health the priority right now.”
“So I’m taking a break from touring for the time being,” according to the statement. “I’m going to be fine, but I need time to rest and get better.”
