Lyn’s brother, actor and musician, Leif Garrett, 60, told the publication: ‘My sister, Dawn, never wanted anyone to know about the surgery.

‘Since it was leaked on social media, we would greatly appreciate everyone’s understanding that it has already been a difficult time after losing both our parents and a cousin recently.’

‘Please keep my sister in your thoughts and prayers and respect our family’s privacy. Thank you.’
