Actor Val Kilmer was rushed to a hospital this week after he began bleeding from the throat, according to TMZ and other news outlets. Sources say Kilmer has a throat tumor.
Paramedics reportedly rushed to his Malibu home earlier this week after someone called 911 and reported the bleeding.
The “Top Gun” star was taken to UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica. Doctors are said to have performed surgery and he’s currently recovering.
TMZ reports family members have been upset because they feel Val has ignored the problem and allowed it to get worse.
In October Val was in small claims court over a dispute with his former landlord and he told the judge he was unable to speak because his tongue was swollen.
