Cher went on vacation recently in Italy amid new reports that the 70-year-old singer and actress is "dying, broke, and alone." These accusations, which originally started circulating online at the end of last year, resurfaced after a report was published on Wednesday that allegedly says a source close to Cher confirmed that she's "on her last legs and has lost her vast fortune." However, new photos of Cher vacationing in Italy clearly show that the "Turn Back Time" singer is still going strong, living large, and looking well, according to ET Online.
A rumor started in December 2015 claimed Cher was dying of Epstein-Barr and unloading all of her possessions in preparation for the end. Starpulse reported that the Epstein-Barr virus was more deadly than Cher's doctors led her to believe. Cher was diagnosed with Epstein-Barr, one of the most common forms of the herpes virus, in the late 1980s. At the time, Cher was too fatigued to work on music and film, so the "Goddess of Pop" turned to infomercials and launched health and beauty products to earn a living.
