A brand new photo of Eddie Van Halen has emerged online.

Sue Dion, who works as a receptionist at O'Gara Group in Beverly Hills, California, has uploaded an Instagram picture (see below) of her with the legendary VAN HALEN guitarist, apparently taken on Saturday (October 19) when Eddie visited her workplace.

Sue wrote in an accompanying message: "I've had a bad week, so please indulge me in this gushing post.

"I love my job. I love the cars, I love my co-workers and I love the clients. Admittedly, I've had more than my share of cool things that I've done in my life.

"Co-worker: 'Sue, today you got to make out with a rockstar.' Yes... I...did!

"Today will forever be the day I kissed... Eddie Van Halen!!

"My mom wouldn't let me go see them when I was 14, so it only took 35 years for the universe to right that wrong.

"Absolutely the sweetest guy--still with that twinkle in his eye. I told him that today he made me the coolest kid in high school. Never in my... wildest... dreams.

"Eddie, you have no idea how much you made my day. Thank you for just being you."

There have been a lot of rumors regarding Eddie Van Halen's supposedly worsening health, including a recent report from TMZ stating the guitarist is battling throat cancer. According to the gossip site's story, the guitarist has been traveling between the U.S. and Germany for treatment going on several years now.

TMZ reported: "Eddie was diagnosed nearly 20 years ago. Sources with direct knowledge tell us over the years there were times some of the cancer cells migrated down to his throat, and doctors would scrape them out. Our sources say, 'Eddie has flown to Germany for five years to get radiation treatment, and for the most part it's worked to keep the disease in check. As for his current condition, there are lots of rumors, but people who know him say he's seems to be doing okay — at least on the surface.'"

A rep for Van Halen had no comment on TMZ's report when reached by Fox News.

Earlier this year, rumors were rampant that the classic-era lineup of VAN HALEN would reunite for the first time since 1984. It's unclear why the tour didn't happen, though there has been online chatter that a health setback involving Eddie Van Halen might have been responsible.

VAN HALEN has been inactive since it completed its U.S. tour in October 2015 in Los Angeles, California.

The trek was VAN HALEN's first since an aborted North American run three years earlier in support of its comeback album, "A Different Kind Of Truth".
