Bee Gee Robin Gibb is in a coma after contracting pneumonia, the singer’s official website confirmed on Saturday. Gibb, of course, has been fighting liver cancer.

His treatment seemed to be going well, and the Bee Gee remained very positive throughout, though some of his friends have remained concerned about the singer’s health, despite Gibb insisting media reports that he was “at death’s door” were greatly exaggerated. A statement at said this weekend: “Sadly the reports are true that Robin has contracted pneumonia and is in a coma. We are all hoping and praying that he will pull through”.

Meanwhile, an unnamed friend of the family told The Sun: “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”.

It’s thought Gibb’s wife and children are now keeping a bedside vigil as the singer fights for his life.
