Pop singing icon Cher will have surgery to repair a problem she has suffered with for 16 years.
The Sonny and Cher star recently told her fans on Twitter that she sustained a compound fracture in the late 1990's when a piece of equipment fell off the wall of her rehearsal studio and "crushed" her foot.
Cher admitted that every time she wears high heels she is in terrible pain (then why wear them???) and has resolved to take care of the problem.
She was wearing stilettos Monday night for an appearance as a guest judge on a tribute show of Dancing With the Stars and revealed that she will have to wait until after Christmas to wear heels again.
She tweeted on Tuesday morning, "Last Nite, WAS Last Nite 2Wear Heels Till After Operation... Sooo... I Bit The Bullet.. &.. Wore Them! Heaven & pain But Worth It... 6 wks till I'm running around on Stilettos (sic)!"
Having the surgery now gives Cher plenty of time to recuperate for her 49-date Dressed To Kill tour, which starts in March.
