Little Richard suffers a heart attack


Rock ‘n’ roll legend Little Richard came forward earlier this week, revealing that he suffered a heart attack in Nashville, Tenn., just last week.

During a sit down on Sunday with Cee Lo Green in front of a small audience of 150 people at Atlanta’s Recording Academy, the “Good Golly Miss Molly” singer revealed that he didn’t realize he was having a heart attack.

“I was coughing, and my right arm was aching,” he told Green. “I told my son, ‘Make the room as cold as ice.’ So he turned the air conditioning on, and I took a baby aspirin. The doctor told me that saved my life. Jesus had something for me. He brought me through.”

While Richard, 80, appeared to be in good health, the “Tutti Frutti” singer traveled from Nashville to Atlanta on a tour-bus equipped with a hospital bed.

There has been no further word on Richard’s health. –ruthie hawkins/@ruubabie
