In the video she said that she wanted to share the video because she wanted to speak up about her health issues in her own words.
She said, “I was sitting at breakfast with my husband(Justin Bieber) having a normal day, normal conversation and we were in the middle of talking and all of a sudden I felt this really weird sensation that kind of like traveled down my arm from my shoulder all the way down to my fingertips…It made my fingertips feel really numb and weird”.
Hailey Bieber Stroke: Talked about sesation that she felt
She was trying to find out what exactly that sensation was and Justin asked if she was okay but she could not speak and she continued by saying, “The right side of my face started drooping, I could not get a sentence out everything was coming out like not even jumbled, just like couldn’t get any of the words out so obviously immediately, I thought I was having a stroke like a full-blown stroke. He thought I was having a stroke so right away, he asked for somebody to please call 911 and get a doctor where we were there happened to be a doctor there a medic there who rushed over and they started asking me questions they started testing my arms definitely the scariest moments of my life. I had so many things running through my head, the number 1 thing I am having a stroke, I am really scared, I don’t know what’s going on, I don’t know why this is happening, am I gonna have permanent issues from this like so many things were running through my head that were really freaking me out and really really really scraing me.”
Hailey Bieber Stroke: Talked about facial dropping and speech issues
Then she talked about her facial dropping and speech issues when the incident happened. She said, “The facing dropping lasted for probably like 30 second maybe a little bit more, I honestly…I wasn’t…I couldn’t see myself of course so I don’t really know but I do know that it like subsided fairly fast and so they were asking me questions and do you know where you are, do you know your name, and I knew all of the answers in my head but as soon as I would try to say it, I just could not get it out, it was like my tongue and my mouth just could not form the sentences and the responses so obviously that was really really scary so I got up, I could walk totally fine at that point, it was really just like the speech issue, went back to my house waited for the ambulance to come at that point, speech started to come back a little bit, got in the ambulance to the hospital.”
Hailey Bieber Stroke: Talked about funny incident
She also shared a moment which she found funny and said, “There was actually a funny moment where there were calling into the hospital to explain what they were bringing in and they were like I have a 30-year-old female and I was like I am 25 (smiley face with a hand gesture and laughed). I had to make sure that they weren’t gonna age me five years for no reason, you know.”
Then she continued and talked about how she came back to normal and said, “I noticed that when the speech came back and I felt like I could talk as soon as my anxiety would like settle in or hit me, it would make my speech feel funny again when I started feeling really scared and really anxious it just made everything worse but by the time I got to the emergency room, I was pretty much back to normal, could talk, wasn’t having any issues with my face or my arm, they did like the stroke checklist in the emergency room and I scored a “0”, I wasn’t having any symptoms anymore.”
Hailey Bieber Stroke: Talked about TIA and PFO
Then she talked about TIA by saying, “So, basically they did some scans, and they were able to see that I had suffered a small blood clot to my brain which they labeled and categorized as something called TIA(Transient Ischemic Attack), I am gonna put the definitions of everything I talk about under here so that I don’t butcher it. Basically, it’s like having a mini stroke it definitely feels like having a stroke except my body was able to resolve it pretty quickly and then I didn’t have any more issues for the whole rest of the day and the whole rest of the time that I was in the hospital, I felt really thankful and grateful for that. It wasn’t worse, I wasn’t gonna have any permanent issues but you know my scans did show that I had a lack of oxygen to a certain part of my brain for a certain amount of time still definitely really really scary so when I was in the emergency room they kept me overnight, they did tons of tests, they did blood tests to see if I had a clotting disorder or if I had an autoimmune disease or they did everything and they could think of they did. They also did a certain test called a ‘Bubble Echo’ which is when they do an echo on your heart and they take saline and they kind of…I don’t wanna say shake it up but they make it so it has bubbles in it and then they put the bubbles in your vein to see if you have any bubbles escaping out of any part of your heart and what they’re looking for, in that test is something called a PFO(Patent Foramen Ovale). Basically, what a PFO is something that you are born with and typically at birth it’s supposed to close on its own except sometimes it does not and it’s a flap that’s kind of like this between the right and the left chambers of the heart so when I was in the emergency room, they did this test, they didn’t see anything, they told me that I didn’t have PFO so the next day I was discharged and I went down to UCLA to see some more doctors to do some more thorough in-depth testing because at that point, they didn’t really have an answer or a conclusion for why this had happened, they did come to the conclusion of why they think I had a blood clot in the first place and the conclusion that all of the doctors came to…was three different things, one was that I had just recently started birth control pills which I should have never been on because I am somebody suffered from migraines anyway and I just did not talk to my doctor about this so ladies if you suffer from bad migraines and you plan on being on birth control pills, make sure you tell your doctor because having a stroke is a potential side effect from birth control pills, the second thing was I recently had covid and that was something that they thought was a contributing factor and then the third thing was that I had recently gone on a really long flight I had flown to paris and back in a very short amount of time and I slept through the whole flight both ways didn’t get up and move around, never thought around wearing compression socks.”
In the above picture Hailey was going for ‘Trans Cranial Doppler’.

Further she talked about the conclusion that the doctors reached at and she said, “So, basically all of the doctors came to the conclusion that, it was a perfect storm that led to me having a small blood clot and that was the conclusion so they still didn’t know necessarily how the blood clot traveled to my brain, so when I went down to UCLA, we did some more in-depth testing and when I went there they did something called a ‘Trans Cranial Doppler’ which is basically a much more accurate test to find a PFO and what they do is similarly they do the saline with bubbles they inject it but with this test they listen for the sound of bublles escaping in teh heart, if they don’t hear anything presumable you don’t have a PFO, if they hear a little bit, you might have one but it’s small and if they hear tons of bubbles escaping, you have one, it’s probably large so I did this test and I actually found that I had a grade 5 PFO which is the highest grade that you can have so mine was fairly large but at this point too.”
In the above picture, Hailey showed her PFO.
Hailey Bieber Stroke: Talked about recommendations and PFO closure
I was just grateful that they found it and that they knew that it was there and also the conclusion was that I had blood clot that traveled into my heart and instead of what typically happend if you have a small blood clot is that the heart will filter the blood clot to your lungs and your lungs will absorb because the lungs are so big and they can handle it what happened with me is my blood clot actually escaped through the flap or the hole in my heart and it traveled to my brain and that is why I suffered a TIA do the recommendation from my doctors at UCLA was to have a procedure done called a PFO closure which is when they go through your groin through the femoral vein and your groin and they travel up to the heart and they put this small button it looks like a little button that button close the flap in the heart and then eventually your heart tissue grows back over teh closure device and that’s it you have it forever and you continue on with normal life so I recently got the PFO closure done and it went very smoothly I am recovering really well really fast.
Hailey Bieber Stroke: She felt grateful
I feel great the biggest thing I feel honestly is, I just feel really relieved that we were able to figure everything out that we were able to get it closed that I will be able to just move on from this really scary situation and just live my life and it was definitely a really eye-opening thing for me I definitely felt a lot of anxiety through the situation because from when the TIA happened when I had the procedure to close the PFO, I just was really nervous a lot of the time about having another TIA or experiencing those symptoms again and then I would get really bad anxiety and my anxiety was kind of making me feel funny, it would make my fingers and hands feel kind of tingly and I just honestly like had a really really hard time in the in between so ever since the TIA, I have been on a blood thinner and aspiring every single day and I was also having an issue with the blood thinner medication because it was exacerbating my anxeity, it was making me feel very out of it, just really sleepy but I was able to figure out the dose of my doctor and now I feel much better now that it’s all done. I feel so much relief and I feel just so grateful to all of the doctors at Eisenhower Medical Center who took care of me all the doctors at UCLA who took care of me. Dr. Tobis who performed my procedure and has taken really good care of me. It’s kind of like hard of me to tell this story, you know I’ve only really up until now told friends and family and people that I am close to but I felt like it was important for me to share this and because it already was like kind of a public situation and people kind of knew but they didn’t really the full story and I also wanted to wait to explain everything until my procedure was done and finished and everthing had gone smoothly and was okay. That’s my story, that’s what happened, if there’s anybody that watches this has gone through the same thing or something similar, I definitely really empathize with you and I understand how life altering and scary it is and if ther’s anybody out theer who sees this and had maybe experienced similar things but doesn’t really know the reason or no why I would definitely encourage you to talk to a doctor. So, this is what happened and thanks for watching.
