With rumors swirling about the state of his health, music legend B.B. King used his Facebook page to set the record straight.
“I am in home hospice care at my residence in Las Vegas. Thanks to all for your well wishes and prayers,” King posted on Facebook today (May 1).
The message follows a flurry of activity around the blues star after he was briefly hospitalized this week (April 30) by his daughter, Patty King. According to KLAS-TV in Las Vegas, she took her father in for tests after she said he was dehydrated and not eating.
After running test, paramedics determined that B.B. King may have suffered a minor heart attack, his daughter said.
