Tony Bennett has opened up about his secret battle with Alzheimer's disease. The legendary singer broke the news in a new profile from AARP, revealing that he was first diagnosed in 2016 but has kept it a secret before now.

Despite the diagnosis, Bennett continued to record and tour through March of last year - and plans to record another album with Lady Gaga in 2021. But his wife Susan says the 96-year-old's condition has worsened, telling AARP Bennett is "not always sure where he is or what is happening around him", and that "mundane objects as familiar as a fork or a set of house keys can be utterly mysterious to him."
