Etta James

Soul legend Etta James has been hospitalised after suffering from a urinary tract infection and sepsis. The singer’s son, Sametto James, confirmed his mother would stay in hospital until the infections have cleared up.

James, of course, is very ill, suffering from both leukaemia and dementia, and she spent some time in hospital to receive treatment for similar infections last year.

As previously reported, there have been disagreements between James’ children, her husband and her doctor about the level of care the singer is receiving, and the use of her fortune to pay for it.
