She said that on March 10, she had a “very scary incident” where she was eating breakfast when she felt a “weird sensation” in her arm and her fingertips felt “numb and weird.”

She then found that she “couldn’t speak” when her husband, Justin Bieber asked if she was okay and the “right side of my face started drooping.”

“Immediately, I thought I was having a stroke,” she said.

Bieber said that an ambulance was called and by the time she arrived at the emergency room, she was “back to normal” and was no longer “having any issues with my face or my arm.”

She was then kept in hospital overnight where they did “tons of test” including “blood tests to see if I had a clotting disorder or autoimmune disease.”

It was determind that she had suffered a TIA which is often also known as a mini-stroke.

Her doctors said that the cause could have been down to three things, the first being her starting to taking birth control, which she shouldn’t have been on due to suffering migraines, without speaking to her doctor first.

They also said it could be due to recently having Covid-19 or that she had recently been on a long flight in a short amount of time.

After being discharged from hospital, she visited another doctor who did a transcranial doppler which found that she had a “Grade 5 PFO.”

A PFO is a small opening in the heart which usually closes after birth but for Bieber, she still had that hole…

Bieber then explained that she underwent surgery to close the small hole in her heart and is now recovering “really well, really fast.”

Adding that she is now on blood thinner and aspirin, Bieber said that she is so “grateful” for all the doctors that took care of her.

“If there’s anybody that watches this that has gone through the same thing or something similar, I definitely really empathize with you,” she said. “And I understand how life-altering and scary it is.”

“‘Hailey’s Brownie glazed lips’ and it’s literally just brown liner + gloss that black and Latina women have been doing for years,” one person commented.

These comments come after Bieber posted a video showcasing a beauty trend of brown lip liner and clear gloss which she’s labeled “brownie glazed lips.”

People of color called out the star for culturally appropriating the makeup technique by failing to credit the source of inspiration for the look. They were quick to point out that the look has actually been popular with black, brown, and Latina women since the 90s.

By definition, cultural appropriation is when someone adopts something from a culture that doesn’t belong to them…

As per reports, this could be a hairstyle or a way of speaking, a recent example of this is Kim Kardashian, who back in February graced the cover of Vogue, opting for a
high, cone-shaped bun decorated with pearls – she was then accused of appropriating black culture.

Bieber was further accused of appropriation when she branded the technique “brownie glazed lips” to help sell her products…

This clearly didn’t sit well with many who said she was partly profiting off a trend created by women of color.

One social media user wrote: “Seeing Hailey Bieber get created for the ‘clean girl aesthetic’ & ‘brownie glazed lips’ is so exhausting like black and brown women BEEN THE BLUEPRINT but once a rich yt woman does something it’s balls off the walls.”

While another added: “White girls on TikTok wearing hoop earrings and slicked bun and calling it ‘clean girl aesthetic’ like that look hasn’t been a staple for Black and Latina women???”
