This is a relief!
Hours ago, reports came out that Val Kilmer had been bleeding through his throat due to a tumor and had emergency surgery.
That just isn't the case though. The actor took to his Facebook to say:
"Thank you for all your sweet support. But I have not had a tumor, or a tumor operations, 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. 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"
Kilmer reportedly is a Christian Scientist, which is likely what he's referring to when he said, "Friends have assisted who know my spiritual convictions."

The actor's publicist also confirmed that he is fine, releasing a statement that said:
"Film actor Val Kilmer is currently undergoing tests at a Los Angeles Hospital for a possible tumor. The 55 year old Kilmer is being cared for by his two children Mercedes, 23 and son Jack who is 19, both LA residents. According to a family friend and spokesperson, the doctors are encouraged by his progress and are hopeful that Mr. Kilmer will make a full recovery."
All of this is great news because the situation sounded dire!
Hopefully he continues to make a full recovery!
