Sum 41 Singer Deryck Whibley Posts Gaunt Photo As He Recovers From Near-Death Hospitalisation

Sum 41 frontman, Deryck Whibley, has posted a picture of him recovering after being hospitalised for alcohol-induced liver and kidney failure.

Earlier this month the singer was photographed in his hospital bed 'one drink' away from death.

Although healthier, a still extremely gaunt Whibley wrote on his Facebook page:

There was speculation last year about his health when he appeared in public looking bloated, a far cry from just 12 months later.

Whibley has received support from his ex-wife, fellow Canadian singer Avril Lavigne.

She took to Twitter to share her support for her ex, retweeting messages from fans and writing: "Spoke to @Sum41 Deryck today. I am so proud of him. He is family to me and always will be. #StayStrongDeryck”
