Miley Cyrus has reportedly undergone surgery on her vocal cords after issues were discovered during her recent bout of tonsillitis.
The Mothers Daughter singer, 26, has left hospital following the surgery, according to People’s sources, but will need several weeks to recover.
When she was hospitalised for tonsillitis last month, a separate issue with her vocal cords – which she has had for years without knowing – was found, and she was told she needed to have it operated on before the end of the year.
Miley’s reportedly been put on vocal rest for ‘several weeks’, so as well as avoiding talking, she will also not be able to sing or record music until she is fully healed.
A source close to Miley told People: ‘[She is] doing great and will be back and better than ever early next year.’
Her boyfriend, Cody Simpson, also appeared to allude to the surgery after posting a black and white photo of them together, with the word ‘success’.
Miley had also told fans she was on vocal rest three weeks ago, as she shared a photo of herself working out with the caption: ‘On vocal rest not body.’
It comes after a severe bout of tonsillitis meant Miley had to be admitted to hospital for a day in October, where Cody visited her and serenaded her – reportedly writing the song Golden Thing about her while she was in hospital.
Cody also recently revealed that he and Miley bonded over their shared sobriety, telling The Kyle and Jackie O Show: ‘We keep each other in a good place.
‘That’s what’s really healthy about it and I think that’s the first time I’ve had that in a relationship. We’re very, very much on the same page.’
Here’s hoping the surgery won’t affect Miley’s signature husky sound!
