Bee Gees member Robin Gibb, 61, is fighting liver cancer, the Sunday Mirror reported.

He was diagnosed several months ago, and was taken by ambulance to a hospital last week.

He was allowed to return home after a five hour stay.

A friend tells the Mirror that his condition is “not good” and that his wife, Dwina, has been at his sickbed. She has been looking into alternative treatments beyond the care he is receiving from hospital treatment and a physician.

The following is a statement attributed to a friend of Gibb, according to the Sunday Mirror:

“Robin is not good and there is a lot of concern for him. You can use your wealth to call in the best experts but sometimes no amount of fame, prestige and money can change things when it comes to cancer."

“But Robin is a strong character, he is a fighter and has been encouraged by all the online messages from his fans. Dwina is doing everything ­possible and hasn’t left his side,“ the friend said. “There will be difficult times ahead but Robin will never give up and his loving family will make sure he has everything he needs. There is ­frustration because Robin has always looked after himself. He doesn’t drink, eats well and exercises daily.”
