Not that we should be surprised, but something written in the National Enquirer isn’t true. The magazine alleged that Dolly Parton was secretly battling stomach cancer and was being treated at Nashville’s Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
While she was being treated at Vanderbilt, she was dealing with kidney stones, and thankfully, not cancer.
The spitfire took to her website to speak out against the false claims.
It is true that I had kidney stones. I had them removed three weeks ago and I am doing just fine! I am back to work and last week I was at Dollywood filming parts for my new movie “Coat of Many Colors,” which premieres December 10th on NBC. With the 30th Anniversary of Dollywood, I did a full week of activities promoting my new DreamMore Resort’s opening. There is absolutely no truth at all that I have stomach cancer. I love and appreciate everyone’s concern.
Get well soon, Dolly!
