(LOS ANGELES) -- Adult film actor Ron Jeremy has been hospitalized in critical condition, TMZ reports.
The 59-year-old, whose full name is Ronald Jeremy Hyatt, drove himself to Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, and is being treated for an aortic dissection, sources tell ABC News Radio, which is a tear in the inner walls of the heart.
After doctors examined Jeremy, he was moved to the Intensive Care Unit where he underwent a round of surgery on Tuesday night. TMZ reports Jeremy is expected to be back in surgery on Wednesday.
Along with starring in adult films, Jeremy has made appearances on Chappelle’s Show, The Surreal Life and Tosh.O.
