British singer Tom Parker said he’s “devastated” after revealing that he has been diagnosed with an inoperable “brain tumor.”

The 32-year-old singer, best known for being part of the group The Wanted, explained in a post on Instagram his latest social media silence and shared that he’s “sadly been diagnosed with a Brain Tumour” and he’s already “undergoing treatment.” The message was noted by the “Today” show in a piece published Monday.

“We decided, after a lot of thought, that rather than hiding away and trying to keep it a secret, we would do one interview where we could lay out all the details and let everyone know the facts in our own way,” the singer explained. “We are all absolutely devastated but we are gonna fight this all the way.”  (RELATED: Alex Trebek Begins New Season Of ‘Jeopardy!’ After Completing Cancer Treatment)
