Entertainment Legend Tony Bennet Battling Alzheimer’s
From THR, another Hollywood great suffering from the disease.
“The crooner can still recognize family members, but he is not always sure where he is or what is happening around him, his wife, Susan Crow, said in the AARP interview. She explained that objects, such as a fork or a set of house keys, can baffle him.
Dr. Gayatri Devi, a neurologist at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan, who diagnosed Bennett, told the magazine, “He is doing so many things, at 94, that many people without dementia cannot do. He really is the symbol of hope for someone with a cognitive disorder.”
Bennet was diagnosed with the disease in 2016, but kept the news provate. As recently as last year he was recording duets with Lady Gaga for an upcoming followup to their duets album from 2014.
