Concerns for Molly Meldrum's recovery
Molly Meldrum's close friend and former personal assistant says the music guru is receiving the best care possible following his recent fall in Thailand.
There are concerns the 73-year-old's health has deteriorated since the accident with recent reports Meldrum's brother is making attempts to fly the music guru home from Thailand.
Meldrum, who just celebrated his birthday, slipped while exiting a cab at a Bangkok hotel last month.
He has been in excruciating pain since the fall that has left him needing spinal surgery.
"Finding out you need spinal surgery isn't the best birthday present but I'm in good hands," Meldrum told News Corp last week.
"I'm still in pain but everyone's doing their best," he said.
Entertainment reporter Peter Ford tweeted on Monday that plans are in place to bring Meldrum back to Australia for treatment.
"Molly's brother has flown to be with him. Possibility he may be flown out on medivac flight home," Ford tweeted.
Ford also told Melbourne radio station 3AW that Molly's condition is "a lot more serious" than first thought.
However, Yael Cohn, Meldrum's former personal assistant, was unable to confirm any details on his condition.
"I know that he's safe and well and that's the most important thing at the moment," Cohn told AAP.
"I'm confident at least he's been well looked after.
"That's the most important thing to me as a person who cares for him, as a friend, that he's in the best possible care and I've been assured of that,"she said.
