Natalie Cole, the daughter of Nat “King” Cole, has died at 65.
The “Unforgettable” singer passed away from congestive heart failure in a Los Angeles hospital, according to TMZ.
“It is with heavy hearts that we bring to you all the news of our Mother and sister’s passing,” her rep said in a statement to the site. “Natalie fought a fierce, courageous battle, dying how she lived…with dignity, strength and honor. Our beloved Mother and sister will be greatly missed and remain UNFORGETTABLE in our hearts forever.”
In 2008, she was diagnosed with hepatitis C and underwent chemotherapy for treatment — where she later developed kidney trouble which ultimately led to dialysis three times a week.
