Robin Gibb Reportedly Battling Liver Cancer

Singer and musician Robin Gibb, 61, has been diagnosed with liver cancer, according to British media.

Gibb, a band member of the Bee Gees has reportedly been receiving cancer treatment for several months and was rushed to hospital last week after a 999 emergency call was made from his home, according to the Daily Mail.

He returned home later where his family gathered to join him, including brother and fellow Bee Gees musician Barry, who flew in from Miami to the U.K.

Gibb announced on his website last month that he was undergoing tests for abdominal pain and being treated for the inflammation of the colon. He also posted a picture of himself and his brother just last week but did not speak of his health.

According to the singer’s friend, the diagnosis came several months ago, as reported by The Telegraph. His twin brother and Bee Gee member Maurice died in 2003 after an operation for an intestinal blockage. The band broke up after his death. His youngest brother Andy died of a heart attack in 1988.

Recently, Gibb said in an interview for the Sky Arts series Living The Life, that the death of his twin brother Maurice was “something I haven’t accepted still. He was a relatively young man and he just went all of a sudden.”

The Bee Gee’s have sold over 200 million records worldwide.
