Lorna Luft, daughter of iconic “Wizard of Oz” star Judy Garland, has been diagnosed with a brain tumour after collapsing backstage following her Friday performance at a jazz club in London.
According to People, Luft was rushed to a London hospital by husband Sid Freeman after collapsing backstage, the singer’s rep Victoria Varela confirmed.
Varela added that Freeman had become concerned during the show as he witnessed Luft, 65, struggle to remember lyrics and forget part of a monologue.
After Luft was admitted to the hospital, said Varela, the singer was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Luft is currently in remission from breast cancer following a six-year battle with the disease.
More information will be available after Luft undergoes additional medical tests and examinations, Varela added.
