A rep for the singer confirms the news, but assures fans that the tumor is benign
Sheryl Crow revealed that she has a benign brain tumor in an interview Monday night.
Crow, 50, broke the news while talking to a reporter for the Las Vegas Review-Journal. "I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI. And I found out I have a brain tumor," she told Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist Doug Elfman.
"And I was, like, 'See? I knew there was something wrong. I haven't really talked about it... But it's benign, so I don't have to worry about it. But it gives me a fit."
A rep for the singer told E! News that Crow is indeed suffering from a common brain tumor called a meningioma, and that it is benign. "Half of us are walking around with [meningioma] but you don't really know unless you happen to have an MRI," the rep said. "[Crow] has no symptoms and everything is fine. It was a random mention during the [Vegas] interview. It was not meant to alarm anyone. She is doing great and is healthy and happy."
Crow is a breast cancer survivor.
