Los Angeles: 'Top Gun' star Val Kilmer confirms having received intensive care treatment but denies having surgery for a tumour.
Kilmer released a statement to counter rumours that he had undergone surgery for a tumour and revealed that he had received indeed medical treatment but not in relation to a tumour, reports mirror.co.uk.
"Thank you for all your sweet support. But I have not had a tumour, or a tumour 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," the 55-year-old said.
"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.
"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," he added.
It was reported that Kilmer had been rushed to hospital earlier this week to receive treatment for a throat tumour, but he's spoken out on Facebook about his health scare.
