Little Richard‘s health is reportedly grave. However, but the rock & roll legend denies these claims, saying ‘I’m Still Singing’ and ”I’m healthy,” but fears are spreading over his friend and musician Bootsy Collins tweet saying he is near death. The longtime vocalist born 1932 as Richard Wayne Penniman ill health news is causing widespread reports in the news with website Digital Music News and The Mercury News reporting the singer is in poor health and that fans are now quite concerned over the singer’s health and reports are even suggesting that his amily members are gathering at his bedside
“A friend, a legend & some say the true King of Rock & Roll. Lil-Richard needs our love & understanding right now,” Bootsy Collins wrote on Facebook on April 28th. ”He is not in the best of health so I ask all the Funkateers to lift him up.”
But according to his attorney William Sobel, for the last thirty years, he says theses reports are untrue and in fact,
“I just spoke to him today,” Sobel tells Rolling Stone. ”He said, ‘You know, I want you to talk to [the press] because I’m really annoyed. This thing started on Facebook. Not only is my family not gathering around me because I’m ill, but I’m still singing. I don’t perform like I used to, but I have my singing voice, I walk around, I had hip surgery a while ago but I’m healthy.’”
Also, the eight three-years had hip surgery, suffered a stroke and heart attack and has kept relatively quiet away from the spotlight for past two years. In Sobel’s words
I don’t know how many 83-year-olds still get up and rock it out every week, but in light of the rumors, I wanted to tell you that he’s vivacious and conversant about a ton of different things and he’s still very active in a daily routine.
Well if the rumours are untrue or true, hope he is healthy and doing fine.
