Blues legend B.B King has been rushed to the hospital after suffering a diabetes-related medical emergency, it has been reported.
According to TMZ, the 89-year old musician was taken to a hospital near his Las Vegas home over the weekend after suffering severe dehydration due to Type 2 diabetes. He has been living with the disease for over 20 years.
B.B King was forced to cancel his shows last year due to the disease, which caused him to perform below par in his concerts.
He is still in hospital.
King later said on his Facebook page Tuesday, ‘I want to thank everyone for their concern and good wishes. I’m feeling much better & am leaving the hospital today.’
