Fortunately, Li decided to put the rumors of his weakening health to rest by penning a post himself on his Facebook page.
“I would like to thank all my fans who expressed concerns about my health. I’m doing great and feeling great! I’m excited to share with you all a few projects I am working on in the near future. For now, thank you all for your concerns!” Li wrote.
Steve Chasman, Li’s current manager, recently told USA Today to reassure fans as well.
“We appreciate everyone’s concern. But Jet is completely fine,” Chasman said. “There’s nothing wrong with him. There’s no life-threatening illness. He’s in great shape.”
“It’s one picture and people are making these interpretations from it,” he explained. “If you took a picture me at the wrong angle and wrong time of the day, I could look frail as well.”
We hope to see the legend himself on the big screen soon!
