Justin Bieber ‘hasn’t been healthy for a long time’ as he battles Lyme disease

Justin Bieber has shared with his fans on his ill-health.

The 25-year-old has opened up suffering with Lyme disease, a controversial illness which often attracts speculation in the medical community as to whether it is real, in his YouTube docuseries Seasons.

During the candid filming the Baby hitmaker tells that he "hasn’t been healthy for a long time" and that he has been "struggling" with the "super silent disease".

“I’ve been struggling with my energy for quite some time now and I just haven’t known why,” he says to the camera.

“I’ve realised after a series of tests I have what’s called Lyme disease which is a super silent disease that’s not very well known. It’s very hard for doctors to test for it.”

He explains: "Basically, infections have played a big part in my acne and in overall toxins in my body, which creates all this stuff so it feels good now to know why I feel so crappy all the time.

“Honestly, I’m committed to getting better.

“I’m committed to doing whatever I have to do, whether it’s inconvenient or not, because I know ultimately it’s not only for me, but being the best me is gonna help me be the best husband, the best father, the best friend that I can possibly be."

He adds: "And, for all the fans that want to enjoy the music that I make. I can’t do it if I’m not healthy – and I haven’t been healthy for a long time.”

Justin confirmed his illness his Instagram account in January, where he wrote: "While a lot of people kept saying  Justin Bieber looks like s***, on meth etc they failed to realise 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!!"

He added: "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."

The disease is spread through tick bites, and causes a rash on the skin at first.

NHS UK says later symptoms can include: "A high temperature, or feeling hot and shivery,  headaches , muscle and joint pain, tiredness and loss of energy".

The disease has attracted a lot of attention as famous celebs have been diagnosed with it, including Yolanda Hadid and her children Bella and Anwar Hadid.

Yolanda has become a spokesperson for people suffering with the illness, and she told ABC in 2017: "This is such an invisible disability, where you look beautiful on the outside yet you're dying on the inside."

She also said that at one point, the disease caused her so much pain she contemplated suicide.

The Real Housewives star regularly documents her alternative therapies she uses to try to rid herself of the disease.

There is still not a general consensus as to whether Chronic Lyme Disease is real, as the symptoms can be vague and encompass many different things which could also be caused by other illnesses.

Photos of Bieber crying and also leaving a medical centre in Beverly Hills last year with an IV drip in his arm left fans wondering what the star was battling.

His issues with depression were publicly known, but the documentary will reveal the cause of his depression was his undiagnosed symptoms.

But sources say Biebs is now being treated properly, his skin has cleared up and he is ready for his new album release and tour – and he's also announced that afterwards, he wants to start a family with wife Hailey Bieber.
