Justin Bieber cut a casual figure as he stepped out for breakfast in Bel-Air, Los Angeles on Tuesday – amid his battle with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome type 2.
The singer, who recently turned 29, donned a blue padded jacket from his Drew label, paired with a grey tee and silver chain.
The star teamed this with grey jeans, white sneakers and a black baseball cap as he strolled.
The Sorry hitmaker announced in June 2022 that he was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, a rare version of shingles that can cause hearing loss and facial paralysis.
Bieber had postponed his tour last year, with hopes to get back on the road in 2023, though he announced earlier this month that the rest of the shows were canceled.

DailyMail.com learned that the singer’s doctors ‘forced’ him to cancel the show while his wife Hailey and his family were worried about his health.
Last week the star showed his progress in beating his facial paralysis as he flashed a bright smile.
The brief video was captioned, ‘Wait for it….’ as the singer zoomed in on his face before he flashed a happy smile for his 281 million followers.
Bieber didn’t share any further updates on his health, though he’s definitely come a long way since he first revealed his diagnosis last June.
He shared a video where he explained that he was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, which occurs, according to the Mayo Clinic, when, ‘a shingles outbreak affects the facial nerve near one of your ears.’
The syndrome causes facial paralysis and hearing loss, which in most cases is temporary but can be permanent if not treated quickly.
‘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,’ Bieber explained in the June 2022 video.
Justin later updated posted a sad update on his Instagram Story, stating, ‘Been getting progressively harder to eat which has been extremely frustrating, please pray for me,’ with a teary emoji.

‘Can’t believe I’m saying this. I’ve done everything to get better but my sickness is getting worse,’ he wrote in an Instagram story post.
‘My heart breaks that I will have to postpone these next few shows (doctors orders). To all my people I love you so much and I’m gonna rest and get better.’
He posted another clip where the singer showed the devastating effects to his diagnosis as he showed how his eye wasn’t blinking, can’t smile, and nostril will not move all on the right side of his face.
He explained: ‘So there is full paralysis on this side my face. So for those who are frustrated by my cancellations of the next shows, I’m just physically obviously not capable of doing them. This is pretty serious as you can see.’
Earlier this month, sources close to the singer told DailyMail.com that his team of doctors ‘forced’ him to cancel the tour.
‘Justin is fragile and has has been worn thin lately. He was told that this needed to happen and he was left with no other choice,’ an insider says.
‘He knows that if he did not cancel the remaining tour dates, it could have a horrible impact on his overall health. If he does not have his health, he has nothing.’

According to the source, ‘He feels horrible about it. He is aware that this impacts so many people who really on him and he is committed to making sure that they are all okay.’
And it’s not only Justin’s doctors who have expressed concern; his wife Hailey, 26, family and friends have all been ‘worried’ about his declining health, the insider added.
‘For so many years, Justin felt like he was invincible and that nothing could hurt him. But after getting sick with Ramsay Hunt, it became so clear to him that he is not,’ the source shared.
