Report: Blues Legend Etta James Gravely Ill

by at . Comments

The prognosis doesn't look good for R&B legend Etta James.

The singer, 72, is undergoing round-the-clock treatment for dementia and leukemia at her Southern California home, according to her husband, Artis Mills.

Making matters more complicated for James' family, he is now seeking to take control more than $1 million of her assets, sparking a family feud of sorts.

Per a court declaration filed by Mills, the blues legend's health has deteriorated to the point where she can no longer manage her own affairs.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer requires constant care to help with even basic tasks, which is extremely sad. We wish her only the best.

Mills is asking for a court to transfer James' assets to a joint account so that he can run things, while Etta's son is asking a third party to do so.

Hopefully, this gets straightened out in what is already a difficult time.
