Hailey Bieber, the wife of Justin Bieber, was hospitalised last Thursday after suffering “stroke like symptoms.”

Taking to Instagram, the 25-year-old model explained to her fans the ordeal and thanked them for their support. 

“On Thursday morning, I was sitting at breakfast with my husband when I started having stroked liked symptoms”, Ms. Bieber said. “They found I had suffered a very small blood clot to my brain, which caused a small lack of oxygen, but my body had passed it on its own and I recovered completely within a few hours.”

Prior to Ms. Bieber’s reveal, Justin Bieber had suggested an issue with her health on Instagram. The singer posted a photo of the two of them with the caption “Can’t keep this one down.”

Dr. Darian Sutton, a physician and American Broadcasting Company contributor suggested that she had a “mini-stroke.”

“It’s incredibly uncommon for a patient who is young and healthy”, Sutton continues. “But I will say, given the pandemic, we’ve seen increased rates of COVID-19 associated with cardiovascular disease as well as stroke.”

Sutton goes on to emphasise the importance of getting medical attention as soon as stroke-like symptoms appear.
