Kenny Rogers was recently hospitalized but he wants to set the record straight about his condition, which he insists isn’t serious. A tabloid report claimed Rogers was on his deathbed, but a statement by his rep says he was simply suffering from dehydration.
“Due to recent wild misinformation and speculation from several media outlets, we are issuing the following statement on behalf of Kenny Rogers,” the statement reads. “Kenny was recently admitted to a local Georgia hospital and treated for dehydration.”
The statement adds, “He will remain there to complete some physical therapy to get his strength back prior to discharge,” noting, “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.”
