We’re absolutely saddened by this..

J-pop star Ayumi Hamasaki has revealed in a blog post that she has began to lose hearing in her right ear and that she may become completely deaf after her left ear lost hearing completely in 2008.

“I was told after various hearing tests that my right ear (which has been working overtime to compensate for the deafness of my left ear) is quickly weakening,” she mentioned.

She added of the vertigo and sickness she has been experiencing at the start of her 2017 tour, “I was experiencing crippling dizziness. I was unable to walk in a straight line, and was often vomiting in the restroom while at the rehearsal studio.”

The 38-year-old singer also revealed that she has been struggling to cope with her loss of hearing, especially since she is a pop superstar.

“I remember wondering how would I as a singer be able to cope with two useless ears. I was in the dark,” she said. We wish you well, Ayumi.
