The “Believe” hitmaker, who has been on the road promoting her latest album “Closer to the Truth,” is unable to get back to the U.S. after being laid low with a bad infection.

The 67-year-old singer has taken to her Twitter.com page to update fans on her condition, writing, “Still SO! SICK !! Throats (sic) on (fire), cough, fever, think I have gone through 2 tall trees of tissues.”

Cher adds, “Hate being sick. Last time (was) Christmas day, 3 yrs (years) ago. This one really sucks, there’s not a part of me that doesn’t hurt. Had 2 (to) start antibiotics… My dr (doctor) won’t let me go home now, but says soon. Love & trust her. I have Virus & Bacterial infection… Throat hurts, fever. OUCH.”
