Loretta Lynn has suffered a new health setback. The singing legend, who suffered a stroke last May, broke her hip last week after a fall. Loretta’s sister Crystal Gayle broke the news on social media, asking fans for “love and prayers.”
“My birthday wish is for everyone to send love and prayers to my sister, Loretta Lynn, who fell and broke her hip last week,” Crystal shared, adding, “I was with Loretta yesterday. She is in good spirits and is doing as well as can be expected with this type of injury.” Check out Crystal’s message below.
Loretta's daughter Patsy later told People that the accident happened on New Year's Day, and the singer's puppy may be to blame for it. "She has a new puppy — we don’t really know if she was chasing after the puppy or what, but she slid and fractured her hip. We blame the puppy!” Patsy shares. “Though the puppy brings smiles so there’s that.”
