LOS ANGELES (AP) — The son of singer Marvin Gaye is recovering at home after a successful kidney transplant.
A spokeswoman for Marvin Gaye III says he underwent surgery at UCLA Medical Center last week. Barbara Cole says donor Rick Greene of Cincinnati was moved to offer his kidney after seeing Gaye’s plea for help on “Entertainment Tonight.”
The TV show is preparing a follow-up segment to air in the coming weeks, she said.
