Judge Orders Medical Exam For Etta James

The Associated Press reports that a Southern California judge has ordered an independent medical evaluation of ailing Etta James after her son's attorney contended that the singer could be in "very serious danger" under the care of a live-in doctor. This sounds eerily similar to the Michael Jackson case.
The 72-year-old James suffers from dementia, leukemia, kidney problems and other ailments. Her son, via his attorney, said that her doctor, Elaine James, who is of no relation, inserted feeding tubes into the singer's stomach at her home, something that should have been performed in a hospital. #Srsly.
Dr. James was hired by the singer's husband over a year ago.
