The state of health of Jane Birkin continues to worry her fans. The 76-year-old singer was indeed forced to cancel one of her concerts in early March due to a shoulder blade injury. “I’m not well at all,” said the artist in an interview with “Telegram”. Despite her worries, the mother of Charlotte Gainsbourg remains combative.
It’s not in great shape for Jane Birkin… The 76-year-old singer, whose health is weakening, was forced to cancel one of her concerts in early March in Plougastel-Daoulas, in Finistère. Charlotte Gainsbourg’s mother was unable to perform due to injury. “I’m not well at all, I broke my shoulder blade and I’m in a lot of pain,” she said in the columns of the Telegram Wednesday, March 1, 2023.
“I know intensive care by heart”
The production company responsible for organizing the concert (Diogène Productions, editor’s note) has invited the singer’s ticket holders “to be reimbursed at the points of sale where they were purchased”. This is not the first time that Jane Birkin has canceled one of her concerts because of her health concerns. In 2021, the former companion of Serge Gainsbourg had to give up going on stage after suffering a stroke. She had then multiplied the stays in the hospital. “Intensive care, I know by heart”, she confided in January 2022 in the columns of the Parisian. She then paid tribute to the nursing staff: “French public hospitals are brilliant, the nurses adorable”.
“It’s sad to see her in this state”
Despite her medical setbacks, Jane Birkin does not give up. Proof of his fighting spirit, the British artist accompanied his daughter Charlotte to the César ceremony on Friday February 24, 2023. And she also made a surprise appearance during the 43rd show of the Enfoirés troupe, broadcast on March 3 on TF1. Internet users were then worried about her. “Jane has certainly made a huge effort to participate. Respect. It’s sad to see her in this state”, or even “It’s too difficult to see her so diminished”, could we read on social networks, as well only warm messages of support that must have gone straight to the heart of the singer.
