Eddie Money says he has stage four oesophageal cancer.

The singer, known for such hits as Two Tickets To Paradise and Take Me Home Tonight, said his fate was in God’s hands.

Money’s comments appear in a video released Saturday from his AXS TV reality series Real Money.

In the video, Money says he discovered he had cancer after what he thought was a routine checkup.

Money, 70, whose real name is Edward Mahoney, learned that the disease had spread to his liver and lymph nodes.

He said it hit him “really, really hard”.

He has had numerous health problems recently, including heart valve surgery earlier this year and pneumonia after the procedure, leading to his cancellation of a planned summer tour.
