Rob Ford, the controversial mayor of Toronto who became an international celebrity last year after acknowledging using crack cocaine in a “drunken stupor,” is believed to have a tumor in his abdomen, health officials said.

Dr. Rueben Devlin from Humber Regional Hospital said Wednesday night that Ford had been complaining of abdominal pains and that an examination resulted in a working diagnosis of a tumor.

He said Ford had been suffering from stomach pains for at least three months and they had worsened in the last 24 hours.

“It became unbearable for him,” he said.

Ford, 45, acknowledged using crack following months of denials. The mayor returned to work in June after a rehab stint for drug and alcohol abuse and is running for re-election on Oct. 27.

Devlin said doctor need to determine what type of tumor it is by doing a biopsy. He said he could not say how long Ford will be in the hospital.

Devlin said a CT scan done on Ford is “very definitive for the tumor” but a “definitive diagnosis” is still to come.

Ford had previously said he had abdominal surgery to remove a tumor on his appendix. “I had a major surgery on my appendix; they took out a piece of my colon. So I had a tumor in my appendix, and that’s pretty scary when that happens,” he told CTV television in a 2010 interview.

Doug Ford Sr., the mayor’s farther, died of colon cancer in 2006.

Councilor Doug Ford, the mayor’s brother and campaign manager, said Rob is in good spirits.

Doug Ford sidestepped questions about the mayoral race, saying he would speak about the campaign on Thursday. Although campaigning has been underway for months, the official deadline for candidates to sign up is Friday. That leaves time for Doug Ford, a city councilor, to step in for his brother, a possibility some have long speculated about.

Doug deflected a question about Rob’s previous health issues.

Doug said Rob complained of stomach pain while he had breakfast with Rob.

“He said his stomach was bothering him. He went to the doctor’s and the doctor sent him over to Humber,” Doug Ford said.

Dennis Morris, Ford’s lawyer and a family friend, said he spoke to the mayor on Tuesday and he didn’t mention any abdominal pain. Ford appeared well during a debate on Tuesday night.

The mayor has steadfastly refused to step down since reports emerged of a video of him smoking crack.

Olivia Chow, who is running to replace Ford, tweeted that her thoughts and hopes are with Ford and his family for good news in the days ahead. John Tory, considered the front-runner in the race, wished Ford a speedy recovery.

“My thoughts are with Mayor Ford, Renata, their children and the entire Ford family this evening,” Tory said in a statement.

Sandra Bullock Home Intruder May Have Kept Diary About Her

It may not have been a random act of misfortune when Sandra Bullock’s home was broken into early Sunday morning.

The 39-year-old intruder, identified as Joshua Corbett, may have been obsessed with the Oscar-winning actress, law enforcement sources tell Today. Corbett, who was arrested on suspicion of burglary after rummaging through her personal belongings, might have even kept a diary devoted to Bullock.

The break-in came just hours after Bullock, whose security is considered among the best in Hollywood, celebrated her win at Saturday’s Spike TV Guys’ Choice Awards. Officers responded to the call of a prowler around 6:30 a.m.

At the time of the encounter, the actress was inside her home with 4-year-old son Louis.

“She is unharmed and is fine,” her rep told PEOPLE at the time.

Emily Maynard is a bachelorette no more!

The North Carolina single mom wed automotive management consultant Tyler Johnson in a surprise ceremony Saturday night in Sharon, South Carolina.

“God brought us together. He’s given me such peace about everything. I’m so grateful I met him,” the former Bachelorette star, now going by the name Emily Johnson, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

The couple who got engaged in January, invited 200 family and friends to Johnson’s family farm for an engagement party. What the guests didn’t know was that the pair, both 28, had been secretly planning a surprise wedding for the past three months.

Maynard wore comfortable cowboy boots underneath her pale pink Modern Trousseau gown as she walked down a lantern-lit pathway at sunset towards Johnson, who was standing under a white oak tree. Maynard’s daughter Ricki, 8, was her mom’s maid of honor.

“It’s just as much her day as it is mine because it’s a big change for her,” the bride says. “She just adores Tyler and he is so good with her. He loves her as if she was his own daughter. It’s been so great to see their relationship grow.”

Following a honeymoon – “Tyler planned it. He told me we’re going to a beach. We could totally be going to Myrtle Beach for all I know!” she quips – the family of three will move into their new Charlotte home.

“For so long I felt so embarrassed and ashamed about that TV stuff,” says the new Mrs. Johnson, whose televised engagement to Bachelor Brad Womack ended in 2011. A year later, her engagement to Jef Holm on The Bachelorette ended as well.

“The grace that my faith has given me to wipe that all away and not find worth in that and find it through God, Tyler has been a great example of that for me,” she says. “He has truly lived out God’s grace every day.”
