Adult film star Ron Jeremy is in a Los Angeles hospital where he is being treated for an aneurysm.

UPDATE: Jeremy was “resting with complete privacy and no visitors” as he recovered from his second surgery, the actor’s manager, Mike Esterman, told TMZ on Wednesday. Esterman added that he was told everything went “smoothly” as far as the surgery.

Jeremy, 59, was feeling chest pains on Tuesday afternoon when he drove himself to Cedars Sinai Hospital, reports TMZ. Doctors found the aneurysm near his heart.

His condition declined, and he was admitted to the ICU, Esterman told E! News.

Jeremy, who has appeared in more than 2,000 porn films, had surgery Wednesday afternoon.

His management team used Jeremy’s Twitter account to update fans with this message: “Please keep Ron in your thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery. - (Management) #PrayForRon #Rontourage.”
