NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Superstar Taylor Swift announced Thursday morning that her mother has been diagnosed with cancer.
Swift made the announcement via her Tumblr page writing in part, “I’m saddened to tell you that my mom has been diagnosed with cancer. I’d like to keep the details of her condition and her treatment plans private, but she wanted you to know.”
Swift said she asked her mother recently to undergo a screening for any health issues to ease some worries the award-winning singer had.
“She agreed, and went in to get checked. There were no red flags and she felt perfectly fine, but she did it just to get me and my brother off her case about it,” Swift wrote.
Swift ended the post thanking her fans for caring about her and her family, adding she hopes and prays that “you never get news like this.”
