[Blind Gossip] We hear that this singer’s family is exaggerating a health issue.
We don’t know why they are telling everyone it’s cancer. We were told “nodule or polyp.” A nodule is like a callous and a polyp is like a blister. Singers get them on their vocal cords all the time. They’re not tumors and even tumors aren’t necessarily cancer.
Why exaggerate the condition?
Her music isn’t selling well and tickets aren’t selling well. They’ll get some headlines and public sympathy and a “comeback” tour boost after interviews about how brave she is. The real benefit is to the rest of the family. Even though she has distanced herself from them, they’re going to milk this to the max. They want to push some of the younger ones into the spotlight, so it’s good timing.
