The rumors floating around suggesting Stevie may have been experiencing kidney failure due to a serious illness seemed to have some merit. The American icon has not revealed exactly what the issue is, but he has told the world that he plans on fixing the problem. Stevie says he has already found a donor as he spoke to a live audience in England about his latest developments.
Stevie went on to explain that he’ll only be performing three more shows before going on a hiatus. He says his surgery is taking place this September!
“I’m all good, I’m all good,” he says. “I just want to give you guys my love.”
Though fans seem shaken by the announcement, Stevie says his intention is not to frighten anyone. His only hope is to let his fans know about his condition before word got out in other ways.
The announcement comes as a shock to many, as Stevie’s condition has not been formally announced to the world! Reports from the Detroit Free Press, however, suggest he is battling a “serious but manageable health issue” and is taking steps to address it.
The sources even say Stevie has been traveling with a medial team lately.
A radio personality in Philadelphia also made a claim about Stevie’s health just one month ago. The rumor says Stevie is suffering from kidney failure and is on dialysis, but that had not yet been confirmed.
