LeAnn Postpones Show Because of “Massive Infection”

She deals with dental problems and then rallies to play a fundraiser the next night in L.A.

It's been a rough year for LeAnn Rimes, who went to rehab for exhaustion and now is finding her tour to be a real pain in the tooth.

LeAnn postponed a show Friday night (Oct. 5) in West Wendover, Nev., because of a dental emergency that caused a "massive infection," she says.

"I feel like I got hit in my right side of my face with a baseball bat :( NOT a good feeling when I am getting on a plane," LeAnn tweeted.

"WORST way ever to kick off a tour.....under anesthesia and a massive infection. Well, onward and upward. It can only get better from here!!! On another note, Happy Saturday."

Later, on Sunday (Oct. 7), LeAnn blogged that she has "been living in a dental nightmare for 10 months."

"I'm getting back on track though, I hope. I've had too many detours this year due to dental issues. I'm finally in great hands and being well taken care of," she wrote.

As if to prove her point, LeAnn did perform Saturday night (Oct. 6) in L.A. for a fundraiser—and pics showed she looked great.

"Thank you all for your support and understanding," she wrote.

"The last 10 months of pain are hard for me to wrap my head around. I'm sure it's difficult for you all to understand too. Let's just pray I'm on the mend. I'll see you all on the road very soon."
