Taylor Swift reveals her mother has cancer
Taylor Swift has revealed some unsettling news today…her mother has cancer.
In a post on Tumblr, Swift said that for Christmas last year, she asked her mom to get screened for potential health issues, “just to ease some worries of mine.” Her mother felt “perfectly fine” but went to the doctor for tests anyway “just to get me and my brother off her case” about it.
Taylor has now just released the news on social media.
“The results came in, and I’m saddened to tell you that my mom has been diagnosed with cancer. I’d like to keep the details of her condition and treatment plans private, but she wanted you to know,” Swift said.
Taylor did not reveal the nature or severity of the cancer.
Taylor’s 57 year old mom Andrea Finlay, a mutual fund marketing executive, quit her job a few years back to raise Swift and Swift’s younger brother, Austin.
