Cody Simpson has sent a get-well message to his good friend Justin Bieber amid his battle with facial paralysis. The 'Love Yourself' hitmaker was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome - an acute peripheral facial neuropathy that occurs as a complication of shingles and causes hearing loss and facial paralysis - and his Olympic swimmer pal has hailed the pop megastar a "constant inspiration to everyone".
Alongside a sweet throwback snap of the pair when they were younger, the 25-year-old star wrote on Instagram: "Get well soon, Justin. "I believe this was taken the first time we ever hung out and worked together.
Man, how young we were. Playing each other's songs we had recently written. "You're a constant inspiration to everyone. " Justin's wife, Hailey Bieber - who is still recovering from the effects of a mini-stroke in March – updated fans to let them know the 28-year-old singer is "getting better every single day".
