Val Kilmer Reportedly Hospitalized With Throat Tumor

TMZ reports that Val Kilmer was hospitalized earlier this week after he began bleeding from his throat.

Sources told the website the 55-year-old actor was rushed from his home in Malibu, California, on Jan. 26 after someone called 911.

The “Batman Forever” star was taken to UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica, where doctors performed surgery on what is believed to be a throat tumor. He is now reportedly in recovery.

Request for comment made by The Huffington Post to Kilmer’s rep has yet to be returned at this time.

The actor has not gone on record about any illness; however, he has kept his neck covered with a scarf during recent public outings.
