The wife of Bee Gees star Robin Gibb has dismissed rumors he's fighting for his life as he battles cancer, insisting he's "doing brilliantly" and "feels good" following chemotherapy treatment.
The singer was hospitalized in November (11), just weeks after he was treated for abdominal pains and inflammation of the colon, and subsequent reports suggested he had been diagnosed with liver cancer.
Gibb originally refused to shed light on his condition, but his spokesperson revealed earlier this week (beg16Jan12) that he is in fact undergoing chemotherapy sessions, used to kill cancer cells.
His representative, Mick Garbutt, said, "It is true to say he is very unwell, but he's an incredible man and enjoys lots of support from his close circle of friends and family, and particularly from his wife Dwina. He is receiving regular chemotherapy and fighting hard."
The reports caused fans to become concerned about the state of his health, but his wife Dwina has reassured them the Stayin' Alive hitmaker isn't suffering and is planning to continue working.
She tells Britain's Daily Express newspaper, "He is doing brilliantly. He feels good and he does not have any pain. He really is fantastic. He is determined to be at the unveiling of the Bomber Command Memorial in June and I am sure he will be there.Ã¢â‚¬
Gibb has been spearheading the campaign to raise funds for the memorial in London's Green Park to pay tribute to the aircrew who lost their lives in the Second World War.
And he's already planning another endeavor - the star is working with his son Robin-John to perform at The Titanic Requiem to mark the 100th anniversary of the boating disaster, which he insists has helped him on the road to recovery.
He says, "It has been an incredible experience working with my son RJ. There is a creative freedom and uninhibited state that comes from working with a family member.
"Working on this album and with RJ has been a driving force, and one that has helped me on the road to recovery.Ã¢â‚¬
