New Delhi: Singer-actress Queen Latifah dismissed reports suggesting her mother is battling lung cancer.

A US tabloid recently reported that Latifah`s mother, Rita Owen, was struggling with the deadly disease, reports contactmusic.com.

However, Latifah insists that although her mother did have a patch of ill health recently, reports of a fight with lung cancer were unfounded.

"My mom is good... My mother is not fighting lung cancer... She has gone through some medical challenges and she`s doing pretty well, but she is here with me and I see her every day and she watches the show every day,” she said.
