Bee Gees star Robin Gibb in coma, perhps with days to live: Were you a fan of their music?
Gibb has been battling colon and liver cancer and now has pneumonia. Family and fans of the Bee Gee were praying for his survival late Friday.
The singer, whose many hits include "How Deep Is Your Love," recently appeared to have made a miracle recovery. But doctors now believe a secondary tumor is present -- and he has developed pneumonia.
Gibb's wife Dwina, brother Barry, 65, daughter Melissa, 37, and sons Spencer, 39, and Robin-John, 29, were at his bedside in a private hospital in Chelsea, West London.
A family friend said, "Our prayers are with Robin. He has kept so positive and always believed he could beat this."
"Sadly, it looks like he has developed pneumonia, which is very bad in his situation. If there is anyone you would put money on pulling through such a dire situation, it would be Robin because he is a fighter. But this is a battle he will struggle to win," the friend added.
