The U.K. newspaper The Sunday Mirror says Gibb received the diagnosis several months ago and was rushed to the hospital last Tuesday after an emergency call was made from his mansion.

He returned home after five hours, but a close friend told the Mirror he remains seriously ill.

“Robin is not good and there is a lot of concern for him,” the source said. Read more about Robin’s condition HERE and remember a classic Bee Gees song!
