Etta James Hospitalized With An Infection
According to Donto James, his mother entered a treatment program at the start of the year to receive help in kicking a dependency on painkillers and over-the-counter medication. She was transferred to another facility, which has not been named, before being taken to the hospital where her condition deteriorated.
However, the star's son insists she is now in recovery and James is expected to be released soon.
James' public battle with heroin addiction and numerous stints in rehab for substance abuse was chronicled in 2008 film Cadillac Records, starring Beyonce Knowles as the R&B icon.
