At a London celebrity convention last month — where Meat Loaf charged $150 for an autograph and a photo — the Bat Out of Hell singer arrived in a motorized cart and used a walking stick to hobble around the event.
Bent like an old man, the 70-year-old star told fans “he was trying to put a brave face on his pain,” says a source.
“He has lost loads of weight and looks like a shadow of his former self. He admitted he was slowly dying in agony.”
An eyewitness noted the right side of Meat Loaf’s face looked “fallen” and droopy. His speech was slurred — leading some fans to wonder if he’d suffered a stroke.
Born Marvin Lee Aday, the once brawny five-foot-ten musician used to crush the scales at 310 pounds. He claims he’s suffered 18 concussions and cheated death countless times — including surviving a heart attack, vocal cysts and even plane and car crashes.
At the London event, Meat Loaf assured spectators he’d “never quit,” adding “nothing has ever put me down.”
But one fan fears the end is near for the “withered” star, who “leans on a walking stick like a pensioner. He hasn’t long left on this Earth.” We pay for juicy info!
