Dolly Parton’s longtime love is reportedly on his 'death bed' after years of battling cancer
The country crooner has been plagued by a string of serious medical issues and had to cancel his farewell tour. It has left reports circulating that he is fighting a deadly bladder cancer.
Concerns also grow as he is believed to have only a few weeks left to live. Kenny Rogers announced just this month that he is scrapping his remaining concert dates on his final tour. Radar Online gives us the deets.
The 70-year-old’s concert dates were scheduled through the end of the year but had to cancel it because doctors have ordered him to rest as battles “health challenges.”
A source says that Kenny is at the end of the road. He even supposedly planned a celeb-studded funeral and has even said a tearful goodbye to the “love of his life,” songbird Dolly Parton.
“He’s getting his affairs in order, including saying goodbye to Dolly. The fear os he has just a few short weeks left, so his handlers did get Dolly over to see him for what could be their last visit.”
Kenny was apparently sad to see Dolly in tears.
“He told her he loved her and always has and maybe they’ll get another go-round in the afterlife. That seemed to perk her up a bit.”

Kenny’s reps have not divulged details on his medical issues but Radar found out that he appears to have diabetes and bladder cancer, along with other problems.
The singer has been married five times but it is allegedly with Dolly that he had the strongest ties. The two reportedly fell in love and in lust when they recorder their 1983 hit duet, Islands in the Stream.

They have claimed that their romance was strictly platonic but word has it that “they had a steamy night in Vegas after one of their shows back in the 80s.”
Kenny has also admitted that he and Dolly are “soul mates.” They actually performed together last year and the source disclosed:
“Their final performance was bittersweet because they both must’ve known they’d never get another chance onstage.”
