Shirley Bassey is letting fans know she’s “alive and kicking” despite rumours claiming otherwise.
Speculation about the 81-year-old “Goldfinger” singer’s death spread after Manfred Mann’s Mike D’Abo told a London audience this week that she had passed away, according to the Evening Standard.
After the rumour began to spread online, a spokesperson for Bassey refuted the death hoax.
The rep told Wales Online the story was “completely false” and that she is “alive and kicking,” calling the rumours “unacceptable” and unfair to fans.
D’Abo has yet to respond.
