In shocking news today, AstroChicks favorite funnyman Robin Williams is having open heart surgery. Robin complained of chest pains and was rushed to the hospital. He was preparing for his sold out one man comic tour.
Oscar-winner Robin Williams will have heart surgery to replace an aortic valve, CNN reports. The news comes after the 57-year-old actor-comedian was forced to suspend an 80-city tour of his one-man show, Weapons of Self-Destruction, after concerns over shortness of breath prompted him to check into a hospital. It’s not known yet when the surgery will take place. In a statement, Williams says: “I’m so touched by everyone’s support and well wishes…. This tour has been amazing fun and I can’t wait to get back out on the road after a little tune-up.”
Always a bright and positive soul, Robin the sweet Cancer guy is in Miama, at an intensive care unit. Only 57 years old, the Oscar winning actor recently went through a painful divorce. He is currently a member of the Episcopal Church. Williams has described his denomination as “Catholic Lite—same rituals, half the guilt.”
We wish him a speedy recovery. We love ya Robin!!!
