NASHVILLE, Tenn. — On Wednesday, the Queen of country music laid to rest any and all rumors that have been circulating about her health.

The National Enquirer reported Dolly Parton was secretly hospitalized with kidney stones and was even battling stomach cancer.

“So far, the [kidney stone] treatments haven’t worked,” they quoted a source as saying. “She’s undergoing more testing. The scary thing is she has the symptoms of stomach cancer — and this is what she could be hiding.”

The source even reportedly said she has been in “unbelievable pain.”

Less than an hour after the articles were posted, the music icon responded with a quick, simple reply.

“It is true that I had kidney stones,” Parton posted on her website. ” I had them removed three weeks ago and I am doing just fine! I am back to work and last week I was at Dollywood filming parts for my new movie “Coat of Many Colors,” which premieres December 10th on NBC. With the 30th Anniversary of Dollywood, I did a full week of activities promoting my new DreamMore Resort’s opening. There is absolutely no truth at all that I have stomach cancer. I love and appreciate everyone’s concern.”
