Cher is fighting off an infection in Europe after being told she could not fly home. WENN reports that while Cher was touring to promote her new album Closer to the Truth, she contracted an infection while in Europe. Her doctor told her that she is too sick to fly back to the U.S. Cher has been letting fans know of her condition via Twitter.

Cher can be seen on NBC's The Voice as a mentor Blake Shelton's team. Cher spoke to ABC News Radio about her adoration for Shelton as an artist. "At the time that he's doing it he's giving it every single, everything in his body, you know?" Cher said. "He'd get up and start walking around but you could see it in, in the way his body moved that he was really, you know, reaching down deep to try to help these kids," she added. Cher's 26th studio album, Closer to the Truth, is now available for purchase, and watch her as team Blake's mentor The Voice, Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC. Photo Courtesy of NBC
