But she went on to explain that the singer "doesn't think anything's wrong with him" because he's not in any pain and says he feels "great".

The news was revealed at the same time as the 94-year-old singer's Alzheimer's Disease diagnosis was also announced through AARP.

"Life is a gift - even with Alzheimer's", Bennett tweeted, linking to the article.

The article conveys how the condition has affected Bennett's memory and ability to recognise everyday objects.

Tony Bennett has revealed that he has Alzheimer's disease. "It has saved his life many times".

Gaga and Bennett released their jazz album, Cheek to Cheek, in 2014, which debuted at No. 1 on U.S. charts and included a tour around the country.

"There's a lot about him that I miss", his wife of 14 years, Susan, said.

Gaga appears aware of Bennett's condition, the article said, speaking in short, simple phrases that Alzheimer's researchers say are best for communicating with patients.

His interactions with Gaga - who told him he sounded "so good" and reminisced about their 2015 tour together - were brief and uncertain. "But the moment he heard the announcer's voice boom 'Ladies and gentlemen - Tony Bennett!' he would transform himself into performance mode, stride out into the spotlight, smiling and acknowledging the audience's applause", it reads. At one point, in footage from the recording sessions, Gaga could be seen sobbing as Bennett delivered a solo part of a love song. "Because he's not the old Tony anymore. I'm hoping and praying that he won't take a turn for the worse that's really insane bad", said Susan.

Devi continued, "He is doing so many things, at 94, that many people without dementia can not do".
