Justin Bieber Reveals He’s Battling Lyme Disease in Upcoming Documentary Series

According to TMZ, an upcoming 10-part docu-series on YouTube Originals called Justin Bieber: Seasons reveals that he has been quietly suffering from Lyme disease — an infectious disease spread by ticks.

Justin reportedly went undiagnosed until late last year, receiving countless treatments in the process that only made his symptoms worse.

He shared on Instagram:

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
