"Liza often fidgets, her hands shake, and she looks look horrible," the source revealed. "She sometimes doesn’t know who she’s talking to and has a hard time focusing."

Liza hasn't been seen out in public in quite some time — and her last red carpet appearance heightened concerns for her health.

The singer made a special appearance at the 2022 Academy Awards, in which she looked bewildered on stage alongside fellow presenter Lady Gaga.

"Liza rarely leaves the house anymore, so the Oscars were supposed to be such an important moment for her," the tipster said.

Sadly, the night did not go as planned for Liza or producers.

"It turned out horribly, though, when she was brought out in a wheelchair instead of being seated in a producer’s char, as she was expecting. She didn’t want people to remember her that way."
