This isn't good news.
Bobby Womack — the soul legend — has just been diagnosed with colon cancer.
And that's not all… he's currently in the hospital with pneumonia.
Can't the guy get a break? Jeez.
We're finding all of this out from Bootsy Collins, who took over Bobby's Facebook page to let everyone know:
"Funkateers, Send Prayers & Love Vibes Up for Bobby Womack. He is Fighting Pneumonia in the Hospital Now. Will Update After I talk to Him. Thx u all.
I JUST SPOKE TO OUR FRIEND BOBBY WOMACK. He Wanted You All to Know That He Loves You & Thxs for the Prayers. Docs Says He Is In 1st Stage of Colon Cancer, He is Very Up Beat About His Future, we laughed & joked before we hung up. Thxs Funkateers, we will get him Back on the One!"
Womack is very well loved, and it anticipating the release of his first album in 13 years — we say that he's got enough support to beat this thing!
Feel better soon, Bobby! We're thinking of you!
