Blues legend B.B. King reports he's in hospice at Vegas home
LAS VEGAS - Blues legend B.B. King is telling fans he's in hospice care at home in Las Vegas.
The 89-year-old musician posted thanks to fans on his official website Friday for well-wishes and prayers.
Las Vegas police Officer Jesse Roybal says an ambulance was summoned Thursday to King's address and a person was hospitalized following what was characterized as a dispute over medical care.
The hospitalization was the second in a month for King, who was diagnosed with diabetes decades ago.
In October, he canceled the final shows of his 2014 tour after falling ill in Chicago.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has released more than 50 albums and sold millions of records worldwide.
Representatives for King didn't immediately respond to messages from The Associated Press.
