Report: Robin Williams in Intensive Care

Well, this is hardly funny.

After having to suddenly cancel a couple of dates of his "Weapons of Destruction" tour, a source says that Robin Williams is being treated in the intensive care unit at a Miami hospital for heart trouble.

Robin announced in a press release that doctors are evaluating him and recommended a week of rest. He was initially experiencing shortness of breath.

The funny man had been scheduled to perform Wednesday and Thursday at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida; Friday at the UFC Arena in Orlando; and Saturday at the Sundome in Tampa. The shows are being rescheduled.

We wish Robin a speedy recovery.

Update:  Robin's reps just released a statement saying he is postponing the rest of his comedy tour "to undergo surgery for an aortic valve replacement."

It also included a statement from Robin himself: "I'm so touched by everyone's support and well wishes. This tour has been amazing fun and I can't wait to get back out on the road after a little tune-up."
