There are reports circulating that Little Richard is gravely ill and fighting for his life.

News of the singer’s apparent medical problems came after Bootsy Collins tweeted that “A friend, a legend & some say the true King of Rock & Roll. Lil-Richard needs our love & understanding right now.”

According to reports, the “Tutti Frutti” singer’s health is deteriorating and is at a hospital surrounded by family. But according to Richard’s attorney, William Sobel, the singer is healthy, in good spirits and still singing.

“I just spoke to him today,” Sobel told Rolling Stone. “He said, ‘You know, I want you to talk to [the press] because I’m really annoyed. This thing started on Facebook. Not only is my family not gathering around me because I’m ill, but I’m still singing. I don’t perform like I used to, but I have my singing voice, I walk around, I had hip surgery a while ago but I’m healthy.'”

Nobel continued, “He had hip surgery. He’s 83. I don’t know how many 83-year-olds still get up and rock it out every week, but in light of the rumors, I wanted to tell you that he’s vivacious and conversant about a ton of different things and he’s still very active in a daily routine.”

He added, “I used to represent Prince and he just engaged me in all kinds of Prince conversations, calling him a ‘creative genius.'”

The rock & roll superstar is reportedly living in a penthouse suite at the Hilton in downtown Nashville.
