• Michael Bolton is an iconic pop superstar
  • He is having to take a break from performing due to his health
  • Doctors have discovered a dangerous brain tumor

Michael Bolton inspired thousands of couples to hold hands and fall in love all throughout his incredible career. And it's he who now needs all the love he can get. After a candid Facebook confession, Bolton dropped the bombshell news of his recent brain tumor diagnosis and the successful surgery that followed.

Fans were quick to show love

"Just before the holidays, it was discovered that I had a brain tumor, which required immediate surgery," the 'When a Man Loves a Woman' singer disclosed, his words echoing the shockwaves felt by his global fanbase. But fear not, Bolton aficionados, for the star's medical maestros have skillfully navigated the storm, ensuring the surgery's triumph.

As soon as the post hit the airwaves, fans were very fast to shower him with support. "So sorry for what you are going through, I hope you have a fast recovery. You where so cool to me back in 1980 when I took singing lessons from you on Chapel st . You have a huge impact on me and I appreciate all you did for me . Thank you MB. Ge ga ge," one user said.

"omg, so glad you are doing well! Prayers and hugs to you for speedy recovery. Time to rest and enjoy loved ones while recuperating. Your fans will always be there!!," another posted.

Now, the focus shifts to healing, as Bolton embraces the comfort of his home, basking in the "tremendous love and support of my family." It's a time-out from the limelight, as he pledges the "next couple of months" to a full recovery, hitting pause on his touring schedule.

Last year the star opened up about sharing positivity in dark times through his album 'Spark of Light', which included the moving single "Beautiful World."

Always an optimist!

"We were basically observing our friends and family and seeing that they all really needed some light, that it was so dark and oppressive and basically we were all just carrying layers of fear to our every day," he said of finding inspiration through the pandemic.

"And so we started to feel a sense of responsibility to deliver hope and promise and all these feelings that seem to be so elusive, and it started to become a feel-good record." Above all, Michael takes pleasure in his personal life...mainly his loving family as he said to 'Yahoo Entertainment.'

"I'm filled with more love and pride in my girls as they raise their own families," he said. "The people I love bring me a lot of happiness... The important things never really change. Love is the most important thing, the center of the universe. There's nothing greater."

And Michael will need his family now more than ever. The Grammy winner also told fans he will be devoting the "next couple of months" to his recovery and taking a "temporary break" from touring.
