Barry White Suffers Kidney Failure

Best of luck, big guy:

    Veteran soul singer Barry White is undergoing dialysis after suffering kidney failure, his record company has said.
    The crooner, known for his deep, smooth voice, has suffered years of high blood pressure and is now hoping to get a kidney transplant.

    His family requested that only basic details of his condition be released.

    “Doctors confirm that Barry White has a history of hypertension [high blood pressure], which has led to a decline of kidney function,” a statement from Island Def Jam Music Group said.

    Past problems

    “He has started a course of maintenance dialysis therapy. Once stabilised, he will be a candidate for a kidney transplant.”

    It is not known whether White, 58, is being treated in hospital or at home.

    In 1995, White was admitted to hospital for hypertension, which was put down to a busy tour schedule.

    He went to hospital again in 1999, when the cancellation of a number of shows was also blamed on high blood pressure….
