Earlier this week Sheryl Crow revealed that she has a brain tumour but as it is benign the singer has urged fans not to worry.

Nonetheless her concerned friend Courteney Cox was all ears when the best friends bumped into each other in Los Angeles.

Crow was making her way from a session at the gym when Courteney spotted her and they took a few minutes out of their busy lives to have a quick catch up.

The Cougar Town star, 47, who was pictured wearing a loose fitting shirt with a pair of jeans, sandals and sunglasses, embraced Sheryl with a warm hug.

She then gently placed her hand on the singer's back to pull her aside where they both took a seat on a concrete ledge.

Sheryl, 50 who seemed to be enjoyed the sunny weather as she donned a sleeveless blue T-shirt with a pair of cropped jeans appeared to use their catch up as a chance to offload as she led the conversation.

The singer-songwriter told in a recent interview that she was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year.

Crow, whose hits include 'All I Wanna Do' and 'Soak Up the Sun,' said the tumour was discovered when she went to a hospital to be tested after she was experiencing memory loss.

She told the Las Vegas Review-Journal, 'I haven't really talked about it. In November, I found out I have a brain tumour. But it's benign, so I don't have to worry about it.'

Crow also told an audience about her condition at a recent concert, which despite its serious sounding nature is very common.

Her spokeswoman Christine Wolff told E! News,
'[Crow] has no symptoms and everything is fine. It was a random mention
during the interview. It was not meant to alarm anyone.'

Wolff continued, 'The tumour is a
meningioma; it's typically benign and develops from the protective
linings of the brain and spinal cord. She is doing great and is healthy
and happy.'

Sheryl then posted another tweet that read, 'Appreciate the love and support, I'm fine, really! Watch me on @TheTonyAwards this Sunday night!'
