Model and media personality Hailey Bieber said she was hospitalized Thursday after suffering a blood clot to the brain.
Hailey Bieber, whose husband is world-famous singer Justin Bieber, recounted what happened in a statement posted to her Instagram story.
“On Thursday morning, I was sitting at breakfast with my husband when I started having stroke like symptoms and was taken to the hospital,” she wrote, according to BuzzFeed.
Doctors determined that she had suffered a blood clot, Hailey Bieber added.
“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 said.
“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!”
Bieber also thanked her fans for their support.
“Thank you to everyone who has reached out with well wishes and concern, and for all the support and love,” she wrote.
According to TMZ, doctors believed at one point that the issue may be related to COVID-19.
“Our sources say doctors ran a battery of tests and are looking to see if the symptoms involve COVID,” the outlet said. “As we reported, Justin came down with COVID a few weeks ago and has since recovered.”
On Thursday, Hailey Bieber’s husband posted a message of support for his wife.
