News of Ron Jeremy's hospitalization Wednesday has been confirmed by the legendary porn star's manager. The most recent update states the 59-year-old is being prepped to undergo surgery at a hospital in Los Angeles.
TMZ reported Ron Jeremy's health was in jeopardy mid-morning Wednesday, confirming he is being treated for an aneurysm located near his heart.
Though he's currently listed as being in critical condition, Ron Jeremy was apparently well enough to drive a vehicle earlier in the day! The man seen here with a lady friend at the Playboy Mansion last August drove himself to Cedars-Sinai hospital after experiencing severe chest pain.
Though best known for having appeared in over 2,000 X-rated movies, Jeremy has been seen in small parts in a number of mainstream films (The Boondock Saints, Spun, Ghostbusters), as well as served as a consultant on 9½ Weeks and Boogie Nights.
He also appeared on the small screen in the second season of The Surreal Life, which aired in 2006, famously breaking a promise not to vote off co-star Vanilla Ice.
Adult star Alana Evans tweeted a well-wish for a speedy recovery to Jeremy, writing, "Sending love and prayers to my good friend @RealRonJeremy hope surgery goes well! Love you!!"
Others are having a bit of a laugh over Ron Jeremy's hospitalization while hoping for his recovery. One message retweeted a number of times already reads: "Ron Jeremy is in the hospital due to a heart aneurysm. Let's hope he pulls out... err, I meant pulls through."
A tweet sent out from Ron Jeremy's official account (which "come from Ron's management when he is Hard working") Wednesday made no mention of the hospitalization, but did encourage followers to retweet "if you're having a Happy Hump Day!"
