The fans went absolutely wild for Justin as he sung his verse  during Nigerian singer-songwriter and record producer Tems’ set at Coachella.

It seems like Justin is happy to be back on stage as he performed a surprise six-song set at the NHL All-Star Weekend in Toronto back in February.

Back in June 2022, the megastar revealed that he fears struggling to eat after suffering temporary facial paralysis from Ramsay Hunt syndrome just days after being forced to cancel dates on his Justice World Tour and has asked fans to pray for him.

At the time he took to Instagram to share a three-minute video explaining the diagnosis, which is a complication of shingles that can lead to facial paralysis. 

According to the Mayo Clinic, the hearing loss and facial paralysis associated with Ramsay Hunt syndrome is temporary, however, can become permanent.  

Justin’s right eye was unable to blink and the right side of his face did not move as he began the video saying: ‘Hey everyone Justin here, I wanted to update you guys on what’s been going on.

‘Obviously as you can probably see with my face. I have this syndrome called Ramsay Hunt syndrome and it is from this virus that attacks the nerves in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis.’

Justin later updated posted a sad update on his Instagram Story as he wrote: ‘Been getting progressively harder to eat which has been extremely frustrating, please pray for me [tearing up emoji]’

WHAT IS RAMSAY HUNT SYNDROME? THE RARE COMPLICATION OF SHINGLES THAT LEADS TO FACIAL PARALYSIS

Ramsay Hunt syndrome is a complication of shingles, caused by the same virus as chickenpox (VZV), that can lead to facial paralysis.

The virus becomes reactivated after laying dormant for years and causes inflammation and irritation on the facial nerves. 

VZV is harmless unless it is reactivated and should this happen new symptoms will appear. 

The virus can be reactivated when the immune system is weakened, and less able to fight off infection. Stress is often a trigger.

Figures suggest that five in every 100,000 adults in the US will develop RHS. It poses a similar threat in the UK, according to the NHS. 

Children are rarely affected by RHS, as the complication most often affects adults in their 60s. 

Treatment usually involves antiviral medication. Doctors recommend seeking help within three days of the start of symptoms.

What are the symptoms? 

  • Facial muscles droop
  • Difficulty closing the eye
  • Altered taste
  • Loss of facial expression
  • Difficulty eating, drinking and speaking

Weeks later it was announced that his Justice World Tour had been cancelled completely. 

Meanwhile, Justin and Jaden Smith reignited their bromance during a run-in at the fest on Saturday. 

The Sorry singer and the Pursuit of Happyness actor — who were last spotted together at a Beverly Hills dinner in January — had an affectionate reunion in a VIP area next to one of the concert stages, as seen in a viral video.

Jaden surprised his BFF by hugging him from behind. 

Justin then playfully pecked Jaden’s neck before engaging in a lively conversation with his longtime buddy and their mutual friends.

The superstars’ bond dates back to 2010 when they collaborated on Justin’s hit Never Say Never — which was the theme song for Jaden’s movie The Karate Kid. 

Fans were quick to react to the reunion on social media, with one writing: ‘Justin Bieber and Jaden Smith bringing the vibes backstage at Coachella! It’s awesome to see friends supporting each other and enjoying the festival together. Rock on, guys!’

Another chimed in, ‘This is how I greet my homies.’

In January, Justin and Jaden reunited with a group of their friends for dinner at Wally’s restaurant in Beverly Hills. 

Upon leaving the eatery, the duo was also spotted alongside Smith’s girlfriend, influencer Sab Zada, as well as singer-songwriter Harry Hudson, 30. 

The besties’ reunion comes after Justin and his wife enjoyed the first day of Coachella by attending Lana Del Rey’s headline act, which included a surprise cameo from Billie Eilish.
