Robin’s wife Dwina and brother Barry are at his bedside at a private hospital in Chelsea, London, with doctors thinking he may only have a few days to live.
A family friend reveals, “Our prayers are with Robin. 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.
“If there is anyone you would put money on pulling through such a dire situation, it would be Robin because he is a fighter. But this is a battle he will struggle to win.”
Robin, 62, who starred with brothers Maurice and Barry in the singing group the Bee Gees, was recently believed to be in remission from his cancer but doctors have found a second tumor.
Last month Gibbs said he was excited to be back in good health and ready to perform.
He stated, “I can’t wait to carry on with my work. I want all my fans to know their love helps me so much.”
