Justin Bieber took criticism all 2019 for the way he looked and it turns out he was struggling with symptoms of Lyme disease.
He confirmed his diagnosis on IG:
While a lot of people kept saying justin Bieber looks like s***, on meth etc. they failed to realize I've been recently diagnosed with Lyme disease, not only that but had a serious case of chronic mono which affected my, skin, brain function, energy, and overall health. These things will be explained further in a docu series I'm putting on YouTube shortly.. you can learn all that I've been battling and OVERCOMING!! It's been a rough couple years but getting the right treatment that will help treat this so far incurable disease and I will be back and better than ever NO CAP
He wasn't kidding about people dragging him, saying he was on meth.
Lyme disease is hard to diagnose and treatment isn't overnight. We'll get to see what he went through in the YouTube docu-series he says will be out "soon."
