NEW YORK–Natalie Cole, who suffers from hepatitis C, is resting at her Los Angeles home after being released from the hospital last week, Cole’s representative said Friday.

Publicist Maureen O’Connor said the Grammy-winning singer is “feeling a lot better.”

The 58-year-old daughter of jazz legend Nat King Cole entered a New York hospital Sept. 12.

O’Connor said Cole has been receiving kidney dialysis that isn’t related to her struggle with hepatitis C, a liver disease spread through contact with infected blood.

Cole announced in July that she was suffering from the disease, revealed to her during a routine examination, and that it was likely caused by her drug use years ago.

At the time of Cole’s hospitalization, O’Connor blamed the singer’s problems on the medicine she had been taking and a busy publicity schedule to promote her new album, "Still Unforgettable."  AP
