Justin Bieber called his wife Hailey Bieber’s recent health woes ‘scary’ after technical issues struck his Denver, Colorado concert on Wednesday.
Video taken from the concert shows the pop singer, 28, addressing Hailey’s recent ordeal after glitches plunged his show into darkness for 25 minutes.
Once the lights returned, Bieber said his wife was doing ‘good’ after she was hospitalized last week for a small blood clot in her brain which gave her stroke-like symptoms.

‘Obviously you guys know, most of you probably know or seen the news about my wife, not sure if you guys seen. She’s OK, she’s good. It’s been scary, you know, it’s been really scary but I know for a fact that god has her in the palm of his hands.’
Justin’s show started without a hitch as the pop star performed his hits Somebody, Hold On, Deserve You, Where Are You Now and What Do You Mean?, according to 9News.
It wasn’t until his song Yummy did the trouble begin. Bieber’s microphone cut out near the end of the song. The huge videoboards on stage went dark.

While the stage was dark, photos posted on 9News showed that the lights were still shining on the rafters, where fans chanted for the pop star, slow clapped and even did the wave as they waited for the show to resume, reports the site.
Finally, after 25 minutes, the concert was able to continue but in a more striped down fashion, according to 9News.
Justin returned for acoustic renditions of Change Me, Love Yourself, and Off My Face without the use of large video screens, lasers, and half of the stage lighting.

It was reported earlier this week that Justin would not leave Hailey’s side during her traumatic ordeal.
Sources told People Justin ‘is probably more traumatized than even she is.’
‘When it happened, there was a lot of panic. Justin was crying, because you don’t expect your young wife to have symptoms that resemble a stroke. Justin texted everyone he knew and asked everyone to pray for her, and he never left her side,’ the insider said.
Justin recently recovered from a bout of COVID-19 where he was forced to reschedule a few dates of his tour, his first major set of performances since ending the Purpose world tour in 2017.

Hailey revealed she was hospitalized last week in Palm Springs following ‘stroke-like’ symptoms, and found out she actually suffered a ‘small blood clot.’
Sources told PEOPLE magazine that Justin has been worried sick about his wife despite her pleas for him to stay as stress-free as possible as she recovers from the incident.
‘Hailey doesn’t want anyone to worry about her, but it was a terrifying situation for both of them,’ the insider said. ‘Justin is still very worried. He can barely sleep. He stays up watching her while she rests.’
The insider added: ‘He would’ve done anything to help her. It was a moment for them both to be reminded about mortality, and focusing on what really matters.
‘Hailey is his rock’: Sources described the ordeal Bieber and his wife recently went through
‘He realizes, and is telling people around him, how much Hailey is his rock, and how she saved him from a dark time … and that he needs to appreciate her every day. He’s going to keep an eye on her and help her however he can. And he has everyone around him praying for his continued good health. It shook him up.’
Hailey detailed the ordeal online in a lengthy Instagram post: ‘On Thursday morning, I was sitting at breakfast with my husband when I started having stroke-like symptoms and was taken to the hospital.’
‘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.’
She added: ‘Although this was definitely one of the scariest moments I’ve ever been through, I’m home now and doing well, and I’m so grateful and thankful to all the amazing doctors and nurses who took care of me! ‘
‘Thank you to everyone who has reached out with well wishes and concern, and for all the support and love.’
According to sources close to her, Hailey’s medical condition was affecting her movement in some way and they shared that she had undergone tests to find the origin of her illness.
Doctors were concerned that her symptoms might have been related to COVID-19 since Justin had been diagnosed with the virus earlier in March, but no conclusive evidence could be established.
