In 2010, she released another album, “Endlessly,” after which she largely retreated from the music scene.
The Welsh artist said that in the coming weeks she’ll post a spoken interview in which she will also address fan questions.
A rep for Duffy declined to comment when contacted by CNN about her post.
She closed by saying, “Please respect this is a gentle move for me to make, for myself, and I do not want any intrusion to my family. Please support me to make this a positive experience.”
On social media, people commended the singer for her bravery.
“Wow, your strength is truly inspiring,” one user wrote on Instagram.
“Your music is a reflection of your heart and who you are, beautiful and strong. I pray and hope for a real and long lasting healing,” another fan wrote. “We are with you dear, precious @duffy you are incredible and very missed. Fight this thing, don’t let it define you or determine your life.”
