Gulf Today: Pop super star Justin Bieber announced Wednesday that he has Lyme disease.
In a post on Instagram, Bieber said he will address his struggle with the illness, which is contracted through a tick bite, in a YouTube documentary. “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,” the 25 year old entertainer wrote in the post’s caption. He called out critics who he says have been unfairly commenting on his looks by saying he looks like he is “on meth.” “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.”
The photo portion of Bieber’s post shows a TMZ article reporting that the YouTube documentary is set for a January 27 release.
“You can learn all that I’ve been battling and OVERCOMING!!” he wrote on Instagram.
