Michael Bublé Will Be Going On Hiatus Following News Of Sons' Cancer Diagnosis

Michael Buble revealed on Friday that his 3-year-old son, Noah, has been diagnosed with cancer.

The 41-year-old Canadian singer and his wife, Luisana Lopilato, shared the sad news on Buble’s Facebook page. “We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son Noah who is currently undergoing treatment in the U.S.,” the statement reads. “We have always been very vocal about the importance of family and the love we have for our children.”

The message goes on to say that Buble and Lopilato, a 29-year-old Argentine actress and model, will be taking a break from the entertainment industry to ensure the well-being of their child. “Luisana and I have put our careers on hold in order to devote all our time and attention to helping Noah get well,” the statement continues. “At this difficult time, we ask only for your prayers and respect for our privacy. We have a long journey in front of us and hope that with the support of family, friends and fans around the world, we will win this battle, God willing.”

Just one week after Michael Bublé and wife Luisana Lopilato announced that their 3-year-old son, Noah, has cancer, Bublé’s friend and mentor David Foster gave an update on how the singer is coping.

“I think Michael, right now, is in a huge bubble, as you would expect when this happens. Everything shuts down around you,” the composer told Entertainment Tonight Canada, later adding that Bublé “will not sing again until his child is well.”

“I’m certain of it,” he said.

Many fans have reached out to the singer through social media, and Foster said that a few have contacted him wishing to extend their well-wishes and resources to Bublé. Though the diagnosis is heartbreaking, Bublé is “in good shape.”

“He’s got good doctors around him. We will hope and pray for a good outcome, which I believe that they will have,” Foster said, suggesting his fellow Canadian’s “good karma” will come into play.

Last Friday, Bublé and his wife broke the news about Noah’s illness in a Facebook post, asking fans to respect their privacy.

“We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son Noah who is currently undergoing treatment in the US,” the statement read. “We have always been very vocal about the importance of family and the love we have for our children. Luisana and I have put our careers on hold in order to devote all our time and attention to helping Noah get well.”
