Robin Gibb

In a Coma, Battling Pneumonia

4/14/2012 4:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bee Gees legend Robin Gibb
Bee Gees legend Robin Gibb is in a coma and his family has gathered by his bedside amid fears he only has days to live ... this according to a new report. 

Gibb has been battling colon and liver cancer and is now suffering from pneumonia, says The Sun. 

The paper says the 62-year-old's family has gathered for a bedside vigil.

A family friend told the paper, "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."

Gibb has been battling cancer since 2010 and had surgery to treat a twisted bowel -- the condition that killed his twin brother Maurice nine years ago.

The Bee Gees are my favorite singing group. I've been to
seem them in concert several times. I just love them.
This is such sad news to hear, they have had their share
of deep losses. My prayers are with Robin and his entire
family.

Most news outlets have been reporting he has only hours to live.
Very sad. The man is a true superstar and one of the greatest talents of our time.

Oh No!!! My beloved Bee Gees are fading. Will always be some of my FAVORITE singing acts. He will join his other half twin & his long lost brother Andy. Barry must be devastated. Isn't Barry the oldest?

His immune system is compromised, pneumonia is the kiss of death. If will had anything to do with it, nobody would die. It's sad, but that's reality.

But the family friend is sugar coating it , no way I would have put my money on Gibb to have pulled out of the coma.
My money would be on Rocky Balboa.
