Cher Recovering from Viral Infection, Will Be Back on Tour Soon
Singer Cher has been battling a viral infection since September, but she is on the mend.
Although reports said the illness was potentially “deadly” and “affecting her kidneys,” her rep shut down the rumors for “Extra,” calling them “disgusting and untrue.”
Her rep did tell Closer Weekly that the singer had to wear a precautionary heart monitor. “Cher was wearing a 24-hour heart monitor, which is a normal part of her recovery, just to ensure that she continues her excellent recovery from the viral infection she had. The doctors are very pleased with how well Cher's doing. She's out and about, exercising and rehearsing for her tour, which begins again in Texas in early November. She can't wait to get back out on the road.”
Cher recently tweeted, “I'm strong. I'm happy to be alive. I want to thank all my fans for their good wishes, patience and prayers.”
