Sources say country legend Kenny Rogers is in bad shape.
A report on RadarOnline says the 80-year-old is bravely preparing for the end.
Bladder cancer reportedly forced him to retire about a year ago.
Sources say Rogers has moved into a remote Georgia community and is selling off his assets, saying his final farewells and planning his own funeral.
A friend of the family said: “He’s a lot sicker than he’s ever let on to the public — or even to his friends.”
The same sources said Dolly Parton begged him to come write songs with her, but “He literally could no longer stand for more than a few minutes at a time.”
Rogers, who has sold more than 200 million albums, has not been seen since he canceled the final few dates of his Gambler’s Farewell Tour in April 2018.
