According to Closer Weekly, Tim Conway had a condition that affected his brain. But reports state that he’s fine while others claim that his condition has caused him to retire.

Tim Conway, 84, used to star on The Carol Burnett Show where he had many fans who loved his comedy. But when The Carol Burnett 50th Anniversary Special aired without the star a few months ago, people started worrying about the actor's health.

The Globe reported that the actor was currently battling a "health crisis" which involved a rare brain condition. The condition has left him dizzy and nauseous to a point where he could barely walk.

Some sources have even said that the comic has been forced into retirement due to his illness. But others, including his former publicist Roger Neal, claimed that the star was "just fine."

National Enquirer’s insiders revealed that Conway was suffering from hydrocephalus. This is an illness commonly referred to as water on the brain.

"He's been on cruises with his wife, throws barbecues when his kids visit, watches horseracing and goes out to the track when he's in the mood."

Neal maintained, however, that Conway had an operation in 2009 during which he had a brain shunt implanted to help drain the water and was now fine. Another source recently said that the father-of-seven was living a normal life these days.

Even though The Carole Burnett Show ended in 1978, Conway has remained active on the comedy scene until very recently. He’s also acted on shows like Married... With Children and Mad About You.

He won two more Emmys for his appearances on Coach and 30 Rock. In 2013, he released his memoir, What's So Funny? My Hilarious Life.

The star reached out to a younger crowd by voicing Barnacle Boy on SpongeBob Squarepants. Celebrity Net Worth reported that the actor’s worth is an estimated $15 million.

He's been in the acting business for over 50 years.
