LENA DUNHAM CANCELS HER LENNY IRL TOUR TO FOCUS ON HER HEALTH
Lena Dunham (above) has cancelled her Lenny IRL Tour, due to the worsening of endometriosis. Dunham was scheduled to headline discussions with fans in several cities starting at the end of the month.
The Girls creator wrote on her Lenny Letter website, that while her “travelling variety show” has been a “ray of sunshine” for her amid “these dark political days,” her endometriosis has worsened and her body cannot bear the stress of touring. “...To be perfectly honest, I’m in the greatest amount of physical pain that I have ever experienced. After being told I was endometriosis-free after my last procedure, more disease was found in deeper spots that required immediate surgery and now physical therapy,” she informed her fans about her condition.
Dunham had said in April she had undergone her fifth procedure for the disorder, a female reproductive disease in which abnormal tissue grows outside the uterus, which can cause infertility. Earlier this month, Dunham had to leave the 2017 Met Ball early and was hospitalised for complications from her most recent surgery.
“This disease is wily and unrelenting, and I’m really blessed to have a community, both online and IRL, who let me express how hard that is,” Dunham wrote. The 31-yearold star said people who purchased tickets would be refunded. “We hope to be back when my uterus has taken a chill pill. (But not my spiritual uterus. She’ll never chill. She’s incapable of chill.),” she said.
