A story ran in the National Enquirer stating that 69-year-old country music star Dolly Parton had stomach cancer.  “The National ENQUIRER has learned she was rushed to the hospital with kidney stones — but close friends fear she could be hiding an even more devastating secret: stomach cancer!”

When the story went viral, Dolly Parton released the following statement:

“It is true that I had kidney stones. I had them removed three weeks ago and I am doing just fine! I am back to work and last week I was at Dollywood filming parts for my new movie “Coat of Many Colors,” which premieres December 10th on NBC. With the 30th Anniversary of Dollywood, I did a full week of activities promoting my new DreamMore Resort’s opening. There is absolutely no truth at all that I have stomach cancer. I love and appreciate everyone’s concern.” – Dolly Parton
