Little Richard remains hidden away in Nashville — and insiders say that it's "heartbreaking" to see the pioneering rock star forced to tool around in a wheelchair. The flamboyant musician who inspired artists ranging from Elvis Presley
is now looking every day of his 84 years, and has never recovered from "really bad" hip surgery in 2015. Richard is now living out his final days in a penthouse suite at the Hilton in downtown Music City. Staffers are told to neither confirm or deny that the legendary rocker is a permanent guest, but The National ENQUIRER
caught the frail star finally outside!
