Justin Bieber has been seemingly forced to cancel the remainder of his 'Justice' world tour.

The 29-year-old was diagnosed last year with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome (RHS) - a rare neurological disorder that can cause facial paralysis.

The condition had previously forced Justin to postpone his tour, but now all remaining dates across Europe, Australia, and the US have been cancelled.

The news first came from the official Twitter account for Justin's 'Justice' tour, alerting fans to check in with their point of purchase for refunds.

A follow-up post confirmed that refunds would automatically be deposited into the accounts of those who had purchased tickets in the coming days.

Official ticketing sites like Ticketmaster have updated their pages to reflect the news, while all upcoming tour dates have removed from Justin's official website.

Justin had been scheduled to play Dublin, Manchester, Paris, London, and Krakow, before jetting off for two nights in Australia and eventually getting back to the States for a few summer gigs.

UNILAD has reached out to Bieber's reps for comment.

Although no official reason has been given for this latest cancellation, the assumption is that it might be down to Justin's illness.

Just a few months earlier, the Canadian singer cancelled the Asia leg of his tour, because of his illness.

He also cancelled the North America stretch of the tour just days before confirming his RHS diagnosis.

After this first batch of shows were cancelled back in June, Justin posted a video to Instagram to show fans just how much RHS had affected him.

"As you can see, this eye is not blinking," he told fans.

"I can't smile on this side of my face... so there's full paralysis on this side of my face."

Talking followers through his condition, he shared: "It is from this virus that attacks the nerve in my ear and my facial nerves and has caused my face to have paralysis."

Asking fans to be patient with him, he admitted that he was 'physically, obviously, not capable' of doing his upcoming shows.

"This is pretty serious, as you can see. I wish this wasn't the case, but, obviously, my body's telling me I've got to slow down," he said. "I hope you guys understand. I'll be using this time to just rest and relax and get back to a hundred percent so that I can do what I was born to do."

RHS can be caused by the shingles virus, and emerge later in life in people who had suffered with chicken pox as a child.

According to Mayo Clinic, the condition is most common in people aged over 60.

While the symptoms of temporary for most people, they can become permanent for some.
