'The exhaustion overtook me and I realized that I need to make my health the priority right now'

Justin Bieber is stepping off the stage and focusing on his health – on Tuesday, the pop star revealed to his fans that he would be suspending his worldwide “Justice” tour, which could see his October show in Israel scrapped.

“Earlier this year, I went public about my battle with Ramsay-Hunt Syndrome, where my face was partly paralyzed,” he began his statement posted on his Instagram and Twitter. “As a result of this illness, I was not able to complete the North America leg of the Justice Tour.”

Bieber finished his tour dates in Europe and performed in Brazil on September 4 for the Rock in Rio music festival.

“After resting and consulting with my doctors, family, and team, I went to Europe in an effort to continue with the tour… but it took a real toll on me,” he continued in the statement.
