Sheryl Crow has a benign brain tumor, the singer revealed in a new interview.
“I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI. And I found out I have a brain tumor,” Crow tells the Las Vegas Review Journal.
“I haven’t really talked about it,” she adds. “In November, I found out I have a brain tumor. But it’s benign, so I don’t have to worry about it.”
The singer’s rep says that the Grammy winner, 50, is healthy and happy. The tumor is a meningioma, which is typically benign and develops from the brain and spinal cord linings. It should not require surgery.
