Justin Bieber will go public with his secret battle with Lyme disease in his upcoming documentary series, according to a report.
The Sorry hitmaker is set to debut Seasons on January 27, 2020, and it was recently announced the 10-episode YouTube Originals show would feature Bieber opening up about his decision to scrap a string of 2017 tour dates to focus on his personal welfare.
The singer had previously confessed to struggling with a deep depression, and sources tell TMZ the Canadian singer’s emotional state had taken a hit after contracting the tick-borne illness.
Bieber is said to discuss his scary health crisis in detail in Seasons, revealing the condition – which can cause rashes, extreme fatigue, headaches, and fevers – went undiagnosed for months, until the cause of his illness was pinpointed late last year (2019).
The news appears to explain why the musician was photographed with an intravenous drip in his arm while leaving a medical center in Beverly Hills, California in November, as it can also be used for antibiotics to treat Lyme disease.
In the documentary, Bieber reportedly explains how he has since managed to get a hold on the condition with the right medication, allowing him to gear up for the long-awaited release of new music and a tour.
Representatives for the superstar have yet to comment on the revelation.
Bieber isn’t the only celebrity to be diagnosed with Lyme disease – pop-punk Avril Lavigne, model Bella Hadid, and her mother Yolanda Hadid, also suffer from the illness.
