It read: “To tell you the truth I’m devastated. This is very recent.

“The only thing I ask is that you don’t speculate because not everyone has children and can understand what this means.

“Michael and my sister will publish more statements and I can’t say anymore.

“But it’s not leukaemia or the central nervous system as people are saying. It’s all I can say.”
