Robin Gibb’s spokesperson has confirmed the star is undergoing chemotherapy treatment in a bid to beat cancer.
The Bee Gees legend was hospitalized in November, just weeks after he was treated for abdominal pains and inflammation of the colon, and subsequent reports suggested he was fighting liver cancer.

He took to his website shortly afterwards to reveal he had been “very unwell” and that he was on the “road to recovery”, but failed to shed light on his condition.

However, at the launch of a charity project on Wednesday, Gibb’s spokesman and friend Mick Garbutt revealed the singer is undergoing chemo sessions, used to kill cancer cells.

He tells Britain’s Daily Mirror, “It is true to say he is very unwell, but he’s an incredible man and enjoys lots of support from his close circle of friends and family, and particularly from his wife Dwina.

“He is receiving regular chemotherapy and fighting hard. He is also heading home to be with his family at every possible opportunity as that’s where he feels comfortable, but the reality is that he is very unwell.”

Garbutt has also declared Gibb has vowed to attend the launch of his classical debut, about the sinking of the Titanic, on the 100th anniversary of the disaster in April.

He adds, “He has set himself a goal to be at the gala performance of his first classical composition in April and everybody around him hopes that he will be there.”
