Legendary Porn Star Ron Jeremy Suffers Heart Aneurysm, Hospitalized in Critical Condition

Iconic crossover adult film star Ron Jeremy has been hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after doctors found an aneurysm near his heart.

According to TMZ, Jeremy began experiencing chest pains yesterday afternoon, but was able to drive himself to the hospital.

Once there, however, his condition quickly deteriorated.

Jeremy was subsequently transferred to the ICU in critical condition, and will undergo surgery later today, his manager Mike Esterman told the gossip site.

The 59-year-old hirsute porn legend, known to fans as The Hedgehog, has appeared in hundreds of adult films, earning him the world record for "Most Appearances in Adult Films."
