Batman to some and Iceman to all, Val Kilmer’s public profile has been something of a mystery as of late. Other than a range of “GOD”-imprinted artwork made for sale in August and a tweet commemorating singer Joe Cocker in December, we’ve heard nothing. Then news of the actor’s hospitalization due to an alleged throat tumor made the rounds:
Law enforcement sources tell us paramedics rushed to his Malibu home Monday night after someone called 911 and reported the bleeding.
The “Top Gun” star was taken to UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica. Doctors performed surgery and he’s currently recovering.
We’re told family members have been upset because they feel Val has ignored the problem and allowed it to get worse. (Via TMZ)
There’s no confirmation from Kilmer’s representatives or anybody else close to the situation, but other outlets quickly picked up on the story after TMZ first broke it. Until we know more, remember, we’ll be your wingmen and women anytime, Iceman.
