*As of Tuesday morning, B.B. King remains in a hospital for complications from diabetes, but his daughter tells the Los Angeles Times that he’s doing “much better.”
The blues icon’s daughter, Claudette, confirmed earlier reports that he was suffering from dehydration stemming from his Type 2 diabetes. He was diagnosed more than 20 years ago.
After experiencing health problems in late 2014, King canceled all performances and hasn’t been in the public eye since.
