Bee Gees' Robin Gibb in a coma

The Sun is reporting that the 62-year-old, who recently underwent additional cancer surgery, went into a coma after contracting pneumonia. The publication is reporting that family and friends are fearful that Gibbs may only have days to live.

A family friend tells the publication, "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."

Gibbs was seemingly on the mend from his cancer fight. In February, he told BBC 2 that he was feeling great after his latest surgery.

"I was diagnosed with a growth in my colon. It was removed," he says at the time. "And I've been treated for that by a brilliant doctor, and in their own words 'the results have been spectacular.'"

Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.
