Bee Gees’ star Robin Gibb in coma | News


Just over two weeks after undergoing emergency surgery to remove a blood clot from his colon, Bee Gees founding member Robin Gibb has now slipped into a coma amid fears that his last days are upon him, the New York Post reports.

“Sadly, it looks like he has developed pneumonia, which is very bad in his situation,” a family friend told the Post. Gibb, 62, was diagnosed in 2010 with cancer that had begun in his colon and spread to his liver.

“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.

While dealing with his health issues, Gibb has showed tremendous mettle on a couple occasions, including this past February when he told a reporter “I don’t know how I could feel any better” after cancer treatments he’d recently undergone.

Doctors now treating Gibb thought they were on the precipice of more good news, but those thoughts were erased when Gibb developed pneumonia. Even worse, doctors also believe there may be a secondary tumor present.

Gibb’s friends and family are keeping bedside vigil at the private Chelsea, West London, hospital where he’s being treated.

“Our prayers are with Robin,” the family friend said. “He has kept so positive and always believed he could beat this.”
