Is Robin Gibb A Victim of The Bee Gees Curse?

ITV News

Robin Gibb of The Bee Gees appeared on British TV this week in an interview that has since raised questions about the musician's health.

Appearing gaunt and frail in the interview, Gibb dodged questions about his well-being, raising concerns about whether or not he is suffering from the same twisted-intestine malady which led to Robin's twin brother Maurice's death. In 2003, Maurice was rushed to a Miami hospital and died within 24 hours.

The other Gibb brother to die tragically was Andy, who became a superstar and sex symbol in his twenties. Andy tragically died at the age of 30, with the official cause of death listed as an "inflammation of the heart."

After a taping of The X Factor
this week, Paula Abdul, who previously worked with The Bee Gees, offered her well-wishes to Gibb. "I send my best wishes and hope that he's feeling stronger," Abdul said. "I mean, my heart goes out to him."
