Leann Rimes banned from speaking to save voice

Leann Rimes banned from speaking to save voice London: Singer Leann Rimes has been banned from speaking for two weeks after losing her voice.

The `Blue` hitmaker suffered an allergic reaction earlier this month and woke up over the weekend to discover she could not speak properly, reported Daily Star.

Rimes consulted a doctor, who told her to rest her vocal cords for two weeks, but she defied the medic`s orders to appear on Jimmy Kimmel`s TV chat show on January 22.

"I`m good except I have no voice. I had these allergies going on, which I`ve never had... One day I wake up, like two days ago, with absolutely no voice, so I`m like okay, let me go to the doctor...”

"I went to the doctor, I`m like I`ve got no voice, my head is swollen... Literally my face last night was so swollen. He tried to put a shot up my nose. They`ve never done this to me before, because I haven`t had allergies before. The shots actually didn`t work. I`m not supposed to be talking, but I`m talking to you," she said.

Rimes has now taken to writing down her thoughts at home.
"I`ve been using a dry-erase board, I`m not joking... I can`t talk for the next two weeks once I`m done here."
