Pop icon Cher is stuck battling a virus in Europe after her doctor insisted she was too sick to fly home.

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.”
