It is believed that she contracted the disease during the 80s when she was heavily into drugs.

In a statement, her US publicist confirmed the disease and said that Cole was turning to her family and friends for supports, reports the Mirror.

"I am embraced by the love and support of my family and friends. I am committed to my belief in myself and in my abiding faith to meet this challenge with heartfelt optimism and determination," she said.
