NASHVILLE, TN (CelebrityAccess) — Country singer and entrepreneur Dolly Parton has taken issue with recent media reports that she had been diagnosed with stomach cancer, saying the rumors were untrue.
In a statement released through her publicist, Parton said that while she had been treated kidney stones, she did not have stomach cancer.
"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," Parton said. – Staff Writers
