The reggae king’s widow was noticeably absent from the celebrations to mark Marley’s 70th birthday last weekend.

“She’s at the stage now where she’s slowing down and taking things easy, but she’s doing good,” Marley told the Jamaica Observer.

Rita and Bob Marley were married on February 10, 1966.
