AILING VAN HALEN GETS VISITS FROM EX
as rumours swirl that Eddie
Van Halen is very ill and suffering from an unconfirmed illness, those close to him have recently made it a point to visit him, for what they fear may be the last time.
Sources tell Fame, Van Halen has gotten some visits from his ex-wife Valerie bertinelli — who split with the 64-year old rocker in 2002 after 21 years of marriage.
Sources say she jumped at the chance to see if there was something she could do to make his days any easier. “She’s just that type of warm, loving and compassionate person,” the source said about bertinelli, who wed financial planner tom Vitale in 2011.
“When she and eddie were together, she was always cleaning him up, straightening his tie or helping him comb his hair ... eddie needs that now.”
though former frontman david Lee roth recently claimed in a radio interview that Van Halen was near death — possibly battling a return of the tongue cancer that almost killed him in 2000 — he was recently spotted at a Hollywood bar with very short hair and wearing sunglasses.
