Lather me up: A friend puts sunblock on Leann Rimes' back at a Malibu beach house as she recovers from 'facial surgery'
When you're feeling down and out, there's nothing like feeling the sand beneath your toes to make you feel better.
That's exactly what LeAnn Rimes thought as she headed to Malibu after undergoing surgery on her face. The singer revealed on Twitter she had had an operation, but didn't go into detail, just saying the procedure was minor. She was spotted on the balcony of a beach house in a string bikini, enjoying the scorching rays.
The stylish two piece - one of the many in her collection - featured a pink, purple and white paisley design and she paired the number with a blue and white trucker hat.
A loyal friend was seen lathering sunblock on the 29-year-old's back.
She later covered up in a white kaftan as she enjoyed a cold beverage.
Reaching the hard bits: The singer had tweeted that she was in 'so much pain it's not funny'
The How Do I Live singer told her 241,000 Twitter followers earlier: 'K, coming clean....I had minor surgery this week and I've been in SO much pain it's not even funny. Nothing major just annoying! Pain pain go away!!!!!! When it's mouth pain and jaw pain it makes your whole head pound! YUCK'
She later revealed she had had 'facial surgery' and joked to a friend 'Lol that makes it sound like I got work done. You are gonna start some rumors'.
LeAnn added: 'The pain is subsiding finally for a moment. My head has been vibrating all day. Maybe the sand under my feet is helping.'
