Cher is losing her battle with a “killer virus”, and now the 70-year-old star is gearing up for her last film and a final tour that will both preserve her legacy, according to a sensational report in US magazine Globe.
Since the 1980s, the Silkwood star has struggled with the Epstein-Barr virus, which has left her bedridden and depressed, and caused heart and kidney problems, according to the publication.
“Cher is on her last legs – and she’s said to have lost her vast fortune, which at one time was pegged at a whopping $305 million, but she’s getting off her deathbed to do one last movie and tour,” a source told the publication.
The star is producing and starring in the Lifetime movie Flint, which is about the water contamination scandal in Michigan.
“Cher has lost millions on bad investments, and she’s fighting back furiously – but it may be too little, too late. Her medical bills have mounted over the years, and I’ve heard she may not have enough money to cover her own funeral. It’s really sad," Globe's source outrageously alleged.
The insider further added, “Despite her fragile physical state, Cher is going back on the road in a last-ditch attempt to beef up her bottom line.”
Cher has yet to comment on the US publication's report.
