Jaime Garcia Marquez was speaking at a student lecture in the city of Cartegna when he revealed that Gabriel, who is now aged 85, often rings him to ask him basic questions and confirmed that he has problems with his memory.
Jaime had been invited to the lecture, to discuss his relationship with 'Gabo' (Gabriel's nickname) and explained "He is doing well physically, but he has been suffering from dementia for a long time," he said. "He still has the humour, joy and enthusiasm that he has always had. It is a disease that runs in the family." Jaime also confirmed, during the lecture, that the famed author has stopped writing altogether and said "he has problems with his memory. Sometimes I cry because I feel like I'm losing him." Jaime, a younger brother of the author's is the first of his family members to speak publicly about the rumored deterioration of Gabriel's mental health.
