Country singer LeAnn Rimes gave a jaw-dropping performance in Oklahoma Saturday, literally, after her jaw dropped out of place while she was on stage and she had to end the event early. 

Rimes, 31, had the leave the stage during her concert at the Choctaw Event Center in Durant, Okla. when her jaw dislocated, E! News reported. She would go on Twitter to explain to fans what happened.

Rimes told fans that she suffers from TMJ, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, which caused her jaw to dislocate. She has had the condition since she was 16 years old.

Rimes wrote about her struggles with TMJ in October 2012 in a blog post. On one occasion, she had to be treated at 3 a.m. after a performance to raise money for the Autry Museum. 

"I've been living in a dental nightmare for 10 months," Rimes wrote. "I'm getting back on track though, I hope. I've had too many detours this year due to dental issues. I'm finally in great hands and being well taken care of. Let's just pray I'm on the mend. I'll see you all on the road very soon."

ABC News reported that year that Rimes filed a lawsuit against her dentist in February, 2013, alleging that poor dental work forced her to cancel tour dates. Rimes sought monetary compensation in the lawsuit for "loss of earnings and future earning capacity" as well as for the physical, emotional and psychiatric injuries she sustained over a three-year period.

Rimes is scheduled to perform next at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Biloxi, Miss. on April 4. On April 5, she will perform at the Margaritaville Resort Casino in Bossier City, La. On May 9, she will sing at Spotlight 29 Casino in Coachella, Calif.
