There’s worrying news for Barbra Streisand today, as reports emerged overnight that her heavily overweight son may be facing an amputation if he doesn’t improve his health.
Jess Brolin, 46 - who is the son of the singer’s husband, Josh Brolin - was recently spotted walking around sporting alarming leg sores. The news is said to have alarmed and horrified notorious worrywart Barbra.
'There are venous stasis sores on his legs,' Dr Charlie Seltzer, who has not treated the 181kgs former garbage man, told the National Enquirer.
'Any wound he gets will have trouble healing, and could ultimately lead to an amputation.
'It’s a ticking time bomb. At the very least, he needs an intervention from his family. I wouldn’t be surprised if he had a heart attack tomorrow.'
While the supertar singer is said to be sick with worry, Jess has previously implied to the publication that Barbra and Josh have not been in touch with him for a long time.
'They have my phone, they can get hold of me,' he said.
Lets hope Barbra can get Jess the help he needs!
Neither Barbara or the Brolin family have responded to the National Enquirer's report.
