“Anyone who knows me knows my world begins and ends with Miss Yearwood, so she and I will ride through this together,” Brooks said. “And anyone who knows her knows she’s a fighter and she’s been doing everything right, so I know we’ll walk out the other side of this thing together.”
Yearwood was said to be doing OK, but was experiencing symptoms and Brooks said there were concerns about possible longterm effects.
“Living with her, I sometimes take it for granted she’s one of the greatest voices in all of music, so the possible longterm effects on her concern me as her husband and as a fan,” he said. “We’re very lucky she is currently under the greatest care in the best city for treating and healing singers.”MORE NEWS: Pedestrian Killed After Being Hit By 2 Cars In South LA; 3 Witnesses That Tried To Help Him Sought For Questioning
