Natalie Cole has had a tough few weeks after the death of her mother Maria following a short battle with cancer.
And the strain of the difficult time is certainly showing on the singer as she stepped out for dinner in Los Angeles last night.
The 62-year-old looked incredibly gaunt as she left Mr Chow in Beverly Hills.
As well as her recent grief, Natalie has been besieged with health problems.
In 2008, she revealed she had been diagnosed with Hepatitis C and in 2009 had a kidney transplant following her diagnosis with kidney disease.
