Not so fast. Val Kilmer spoke out about reports that he was admitted to the ICU at the UCLA Medical Center. The Mark Twain and Mary Baker Eddy actor took to his Facebook page on Thursday, Oct. 22, hours after the rumors first surfaced.
“Thank you all for your love and support. There’s a rumor I’m unwell again and in hospital which is totally untrue,” Kilmer, 55, wrote. “I was in to verify I have no tumor or infection of any kind which was verified by the very caring experts at UCLA.”
Earlier on Thursday, Radar Online reported that he’s battling throat cancer, was wheelchair-bound, and on a gurney at one point.
Kilmer previously slammed rumors that he had throat tumor surgery this past January. He did, however, allude to having a health issue.
“Thank you for all your sweet support. But I have not had a tumor, or a tumor operation, or any operation. I had a complication where the best way to receive care was to stay under the watchful eye of the ucla ICU,” he wrote on Facebook at the time.
“Friends have assisted who know my spiritual convictions and have been most sensitive and kind for the extra effort in making sure there’s minimum gossip and silly talk,” he continued. “I am praying for a speedy return to the boards as they say. God bless you all and please don’t worry. Love and deep affection, Val.”
