Friends of the music legend are worried that he may be living his last days. According to RadarOnline, Tom Jones has reportedly been struck with a dangerous disease that puts his life in danger and is refusing to even talk about it.
As fans may remember, the 77-year-old singer canceled his U.S. tour unexpectedly ‘following medical advice.’
Jones took to social media to sincerely apologize for canceling the well-awaited tour and promised he’d be back in May of 2018 – nine months from now!
‘Pals are really worried for Tom. He has been through hell these last two years. They are praying he does not give up,’ one source close to the star revealed.
Besides, this is not even the first time Tom had a health scare and kept it hidden.
In 1988, when he was 48, Jones underwent throat surgery to have some built up tissue cut from his vocal chords, and it all happened in secret.
Fortunately, for him, it turned out to be a non-cancerous problem, but it is possible the tissue has been growing in his throat once again.
At the time, the crooner had no choice but cancel a show in Las Vegas that paid very well after doctors told him not to use his voice at all for a while.
In addition, friends of the star say he is still devastated by the loss of Linda, his wife, back in 2016.
Despite him being a self-confessed cheater, Linda remained by his side for 59 years.
Reports say that after his spouse passed away, the singer tried to cope with it by trying his chances with Priscilla Presley.
But ‘With no tour to focus on and a new health scare for Tom, everyone is terrified he will lose his will to go on!’ the insider added.
