As news of country legend Toby Keith’s passing spreads, more details about his last days are emerging.
Retired NFL quarterback Brett Favre recently spoke with TMZ Sports about his conversations with country music singer Keith in the weeks preceding up to his death on February 5, describing how he could sense the end was approaching.
“I believe that, ultimately, he was simply exhausted,” Favre told TMZ. During our talk, he did tell me that, telling me, “Brett… whatever happens, I’m okay with it.”
The ex-NFL player claimed he felt forced to contact his pal after witnessing his unwell appearance during his December Las Vegas appearances. Favre hoped his friend had “turned a corner” and contacted every three months to see how things were going.
Unfortunately, he would discover it wasn’t true in due time.
According to Favre, Keith mentioned that “I quit chemo and it probably did more damage to me than the cancer did” when asked about his decision. “I hope I didn’t leave it too late, but…” he added. I’m grateful for the opportunity to perform at a few shows. “I completed them.”
Keith fought stomach cancer with dignity, according to the ex-Green Bay Packers quarterback.
His statement was that the artist who sang “Red Solo Cup” “stood up to the cancer about as good as you can.”
Monday night, the country singer “passed away peacefully” with his loved ones at his side.
Two years after he revealed his stomach cancer diagnosis in December 2021, he passed away.
“He was quite the showman,” Favre remarked. I thought he was great.
Bye, Toby Keith! We’ve missed you terribly. Toby Keith will be remembered forever if you will only share this tale.
