Kenny Rogers, the renowned singer, and actor who studded the entertainment world with several hits was in the hospital. It didn’t take much time for the reporters to come up with the tabloid allegations. They claimed that his ill health could cause him death. But the rumors were denied thoroughly as he was admitted just for dehydration. Not because of his deteriorating condition that can hint towards death, as rumored.
The Confirmation Statement
The rumors of his ill-health nearing towards death forced the singer to release the right information through his representatives. The spokesperson took to Instagram to reveal the truth. It reads as “Due to recent wild misinformation and speculation from several media outlets, we are issuing the following statement on behalf of Kenny Rogers: Kenny was recently admitted to a local Georgia hospital and treated for dehydration.” Further, it informed that “He will remain there to complete some physical therapy to get his strength back before discharge. He appreciates the concern and well wishes he has received from his fans and can assure everyone he plans on sticking around through the years to come.”
Kenny Rogers’ Ailing Condition-Over The Years
The reports of his hospitalization worried Kenny’s fans, but at the same time, this confirmation gave them a dense relief. Notably, these rumors were reported after a year of cancellation of his farewell tour. That was done due to his health issues.
The Country Music Hall of Famer waved a hand of goodbye to the music world in 2015. In April 2018 we discovered by his statement that he was forced to conclude the farewell concerts. After the cancellation of goodbye concert, his publicist reported to People that “Kenny Rogers has been working through a series of health challenges. His doctors fully expect the outcome to be great. but they have advised him to cancel all performances through the end of the year to focus on recuperation.”
‘The Gambler’ singer once stated how his unavailability stopped him from thanking his followers. He said that “ I didn’t want to take forever to retire. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity to say farewell to the fans over the past two years on The Gambler’s Last Deal tour. I could never properly thank them for the encouragement and support they’ve given me throughout my career and the happiness I’ve experienced as a result of that.”
The 80-year-old master once hinted towards his declining health back in 2015 ‘Today show.’ His words about the tour were recorded as “I’m sure I will miss it. I swore that I would do this until I embarrassed myself. I’m getting to where I don’t walk around well. My mobility is driving me crazy.”
