BERKSHIRE, ENGLAND: The condition of an Australian entertainer, Rolf Harris, whose life took a drastic turn in 2013 when he was arrested for sexual assault of minor girls, has gotten worse after he was diagnosed with neck cancer. The Daily Mail, citing the neighbors and friends of the musician, reported that he’s now “gravely sick” and “can't eat anymore."

The 92-year-old, who was released from prison in 2017, is now reportedly living a lonely life in Bray village in England’s Berkshire with his sculptor wife Alwen Hughes, whom he married in 1958. It was also stated that his partner's condition was not good either as she has Alzheimer’s. Reports also said that Harris’ health deteriorated after his beloved poodle died earlier in 2022.

A neighbor of the veteran television personality, Portia Wooderson, said, “Only carers and nurses, who care for him 24 hours, come and go. I'm told he can't eat anymore.” Private investigator and author William Merritt also described Harris as “gravely sick” before asserting, “(He's) battling a cancer of the neck, and gargles when he talks. It's difficult to understand him, but he is still the entertainer. As soon as one of two people walk into the room, he turns into a big kid again. He's an artistic type, and he'll try to perform on cue, even when he's unwell.”

However, this is not the first time his health took a turn for the worse. It was reported that when he was behind bars after being convicted of 12 counts of indecent assault, he was admitted to a hospital after his diabetes went out of control. A neighbor of his claimed in 2019, “He's in poor health and has declined rapidly. He doesn't come out any more and when he does it's only ever with his carer.”

Meanwhile, the ‘​​Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport’ singer has never given a direct statement after coming out of jail five years ago. However, in a book, ‘Rolf Harris: The Defence Team's Special Investigator Reveals the Truth Behind the Trials’ by Merritt, he reportedly stated, “I understand we live in the post truth era and know few will want to know what really happened during the three criminal trials I faced – it's easier to condemn me and liken me to people like Saville and Glitter. I was convicted of offences I did not commit in my first trial. That is not just my view but the view of the Court of Appeal who overturned one of my convictions. I had already served the prison sentence by the time of the appeal.”

Harris explained, “I changed my legal team after the first trial, and I was told that if the truth was out there, William (Merritt) would find it and he did. The evidence he found proved my innocence to two subsequent juries,” before adding, “I'd be in prison serving a sentence for crimes I did not commit if it were not for William's investigation. It is difficult to put into words the injustice that I feel.”
