Johnny was originally diagnosed with brain cancer in 2017 and later revealed he was all-clear of the disease back in 2019.
But in an Instagram post in November last year, Johnny shared the devastating news that his cancer had returned.
"After an unexpected week of seizures and excruciating headaches it is with a heavy heart that i have to let you know i now have another huge battle ahead of me as my brain cancer has returned," he wrote alongside a photo of himself and Tahnee.
He continued: "Though i will dig deep and beat this sht disease again #fckcancer".
