Bee Gees legend Robin Gibb was back in hospital on Thursday due to his ongoing stomach problems, according to a U.K. report.
The Night Fever hitmaker sought medical attention after suffering acute abdominal pains at his home in Oxfordshire, England, reports Britain’s Daily Express.

The newspaper reports Gibb was taken by ambulance to a specialist stomach unit at a nearby hospital.

A source tell the publication, “An ambulance rushed over to pick him up. His wife was with him and she obviously looked very worried. He looked in severe pain.”

A friend added, “He would never go to hospital unless he really had to. He is a very brave man. We don’t know if it is a recurrence of the previous problem or if it is something else entirely.”

Gibb was forced to pull out of his South American tour earlier this year due to the same problem. The 61 year old underwent emergency surgery for a blocked intestine last year.
