Actor and one-time aspiring rapper Patrick Swayze has been diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer and may only have six months to live, according to reports.

Swayze has starred in a number of classics, including The Outsiders, Dirty Dancing, Roadhouse, Steel Dawn and others.

The 55-year-old actor admitted to experimenting with Hip-Hop as early as 2005, utilizing “rap rhythms” for ballads he was recording.

The actor also unwittingly became involved in Hip-Hop culture when his last name (Swayze) became synonymous with the term to “leave“ or “disappear," after the success of his 1990 flick Ghost.

As a singer, Patrick Swayze had a hit with the single “She’s Like The Wind” from the 1987 soundtrack to the film Dirty Dancing, which has sold over 11 million copies.

Patrick Swayze was also featured as an FBI agent in Ja Rule’s video for “Reign,” which caused controversy when it was released in 2002, as The Inc.’s CEO Irv “Gotti” Lorenzo and his brother, Christopher “Gotti” Lorenzo stood trial for money laundering.

Swayze’s physician Dr. George Fisher issued a statement denying that his patient was on the verge of death.

“Patrick has a very limited amount of disease and he appears to be responding well to treatment thus far,” Fischer said in a statement. “All of the reports stating the timeframe of his prognosis and his physical side effects are absolutely untrue. We are considerably more optimistic.' Patrick is continuing his normal schedule during this time, which includes working on upcoming projects.”
