AceShowbiz - Not all the messages that Justin Bieber received after he revealed his battle with Lyme disease were supportive. If anything, many people began sending the Canadian singer rude and mean message on social media, prompting his wife Hailey Bieber (previously known as Hailey Baldwin) to come to his defense and hit back at the haters.
She took to Twitter to tell the trolls, "For those who are trying to downplay the severity of Lyme disease, please do your research and listen to the stories of people who have suffered with it for years. Making fun of and belittling a disease you don't understand is never the way, all it takes is educating yourself."
Hailey then gave a shout-out to her model pals, Gigi and Bella Hadid, as well as their mom Yolanda Hadid for "bringing me so much clarity and information on Lyme disease and for helping answer my questions about course of action, symptoms etc. Love you 3 amazing women!"
Justin himself has responded to his haters. Instead of getting angry, the "Yummy" singer sent nothing but love to them. "I see a lot of people on here just creating lies and saying that they hope I lose in everything I do," he said. "Well I hope you all win. I hope everything you want in life happens for you. Regardless of how you feel about me I send back love."
Justin revealed his battle with Lyme disease in an Instagram post shared on Wednesday, January 8. In addition to struggling with the tick-borne illness, he was diagnosed with "a serious case of chronic mono." He said, "While a lot of people kept saying Justin Bieber looks like s**t, 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."
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."
Details of his Lyme disease journey will be explained on his upcoming YouTube docuseries.
