Death is looming for 80-year-old country legend Kenny Rogers. But now has exclusively learned it's even worse than anyone knew.

According to a family insider, a 24/7 private doctor has been assigned to the singer as his condition worsens.

"There is a private doctor who visits him three times a week," the source claimed. "One of the neighbors must’ve complained, because a police officer drove up and was in the process of writing a ticket when the doctor came out and apologized – he said he was Kenny’s private doctor and he was there for work."

Most recently, on April 1, the insider said a private ambulance was called to the star's Georgia home.

"His wife was hollering at the ambulance to hurry. They didn’t use lights or sirens though."

In a statement to, Rogers' rep confirmed the star has since been hospitalized again, but insisted he's on the road to recovery.

"Kenny was recently admitted to a local Georgia hospital and treated for dehydration," the spokesperson said. "Rogers will remain there to complete some physical therapy to get his strength back prior to discharge. He appreciates the concern and well wishes he has received from his fans and can assure everyone he plans on sticking around through the years to come."

As previously reported, Rogers is now preparing for the end just after his bladder cancer forced him to retire.

Rogers has not appeared in public since 2018. He was diagnosed with cancer in 2017. "The Gambler" singer also suffered a 25-year battle with hepatitis C that resulted in liver disease and paralyzing back pain.

One neighbor who visited Rogers’ home said the house “reeked — it smelled like something was rotting, and there was medical equipment everywhere,” including oxygen tanks.
