Patrick Swayze fights cancer, hates tabloids



A lot of Juice*heads have been asking about Patrick Swayze and his battle with pancreatic cancer (well, six of you at least -- half of our readership!). Good news, everyone, Swayze is talking about how much he hates gossipy outlets like The Juice* printing lies about him. Yay us!

Tbdpatrickswayze120308 "I'm very proud of the work I've done on my new series The Beast, and I am happy to be back home for the holidays. It's a great feeling of accomplishment to say you're gonna do something and do it," the 56-year-old actor told People. "The only thorn in my side being that many tabloids have been consistently reporting lies and false information about me and those close to me. And latest, they're reporting that I'm on my last legs and saying goodbye to my tearful family!"

So we're guessing that's not what's happening. But the good news is that he's doing better than some say..

"It's a battle, and so far, I've been winning. I'm one of the lucky few that responds well to treatment," he said. "It's upsetting that the shoddy and reckless reporting from these publications cast a negative shadow on the positive and good fight I'm fighting."

That's why we're glad to be able to give people the truth, Mr. Swayze. Otherwise, the shoddy and reckless reporting is just for paying the bills.
