Dolly Parton has issued a statement denying claims in the usually super reliable National Enquirer that she is being treated for stomach cancer. In fact, she says, she was taken to hospital recently to have some kidney stones removed.

“It is true that I had kidney stones”, said the musician. “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 10 Dec 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”.

So, there you go. You now know that Parton is fine and the entire contents of her diary. Result!
