LeAnn Rimes Jaw Stopping Performance
LeAnn Rimes put on an awesome show at last year’s Spiedie Fest and Balloon Rally at Otsiningo Park. I can’t wait for this years show? Who’s it gonna be….you’ll have to read the end. I’m glad this didn’t happen to LeAnn at our show.
Fans at her show in Oklahoma on March 22 were probably bumming when the singer didn’t do her encore. She had a good reason, she took to Twitter to explain.
She tweeted “Oklahoma!!!! I love you so much! I’m sorry for no encore, I had my jaw pop out of place & I can’t hear out of my left ear. #tmjsucks”
This isn’t the first time she’s shared her TMJ-related problems. (Temporomandibular joint disorder which causes pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint.) In 2012, she underwent several dental procedures, which she let us know about on Twitter.
”Waiting on the endodontist to meet me and do a nighttime root canal,” she wrote in July. “This is one of the craziest things I’ve ever been through. Trying to keep my mind off the pain & what’s about to happen by saying hi to you guys. Life does not work on the right schedule sometimes. This is such bad timing! K, wish me luck. Much love!”
She also wrote, “O-M-G I got 3 shots in the roof of my mouth & 1 INSANE shot directly into the half dead half ALIVE nerve through the hole he drilled on the backside of my tooth.”
She filed a lawsuit in 2013 saying that her dentist’s work had set her back. She claimed that she suffered “severe tooth pain, gum inflammation, and chronic gum bleeding,” and that her “ability to perform as an artist has been and will continued to be significantly compromised until all re-treatment is complete.”
We’ll keep you posted as we find out more about LeAnn. As far as this year’s country show at Spiediefest…….they haven’t told me yet…..really I have no idea……you can keep asking …..I don’t know.
