An agent for director Penny Marshall has denied a tabloid report that the star is sick with a brain tumor.

Earlier this week, the National Enquirer claimed the former “Laverne & Shirley” star had been diagnosed with a brain tumor and was “battling for her life.”

But it’s not true, according to Penny’s agent.

“She’s fine,” the agent told Access Hollywood.

Additionally, a source at the 66-year-old star’s production company said Penny is fine.

“I spoke to Penny yesterday,” the source said. “She is in New York. She is not in a hospital, she is not sick, she is doing well and is really great!”

The source added that Penny is expected at a game on Wednesday night in New York City, but could not confirm if it would be Game 6 of the World Series between the New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies.
