“I don’t like it. But … this is me, this is what I have to accept,” the legendary songwriter reportedly said in a “CBS Sunday Morning” interview airing Sunday.
Neil Diamond retired from live performances five years ago after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
However, the singer reportedly admitted to “CBS Sunday Morning” that he only recently came to terms with the diagnosis.
“I think this has just been in the last few weeks,” the 82-year-old Diamond told broadcaster Anthony Mason, CBS News said of the interview, which airs on Sunday.
