Sheryl Crow has been diagnosed as having a brain tumor, and while her rep insists it’s nothing to worry about the singer seems to be suffering memory loss side effects. The mother of two adopted sons, who is also a cancer survivor, revealed her brain tumor news during a recent interview in Vegas.
“I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI. And I found out I have a brain tumor,” 50-year-old Sheryl Crow told a reporter of what prompted her to seek medical care. “And I was, like, ‘See? I knew there was something wrong.’”
“I haven’t really talked about it,” the mother of sons Wyatt and Levi, seen here in February together at the beach, went on to explain. “In November, I found out I have a brain tumor. But it’s benign, so I don’t have to worry about it. But it gives me a fit.”
As news of Sheryl Crow’s brain tumor spread, her rep spoke out to try and reassure fans not to worry — though seemingly contradicted the singer’s statements about memory loss.
“Half of us are walking around with [meningioma] but you don’t really know unless you happen to have an MRI,” the rep told E! News. “[Crow] has no symptoms and everything is fine. It was a random mention during the [Vegas] interview. It was not meant to alarm anyone. She is doing great and is healthy and happy.”
Here’s hoping that is indeed the case!
