Adult film actor Ron Jeremy is in critical condition after suffering a heart aneurysm, according to TMZ.
Jeremy, 59, drove himself to Cedars-Sinai hospital Tuesday afternoon after experiencing severe chest pain and doctors discovered the aneurysm.
Jeremy's manager told TMZ that Jeremy's condition has worsened and he was transferred to the intensive care unit and Wednesday morning was being prepped for surgery.
Jeremy was set to co-host the 2013 Q-rotica - a KLAQ event - with Jade Simone St. Clair on Feb. 8 in El Paso.
Jeremy has appeared in more than 2,000 adult films and also starred in one season of The Surreal Life with Tammy Faye Bakker and other past-their-prime stars.
He was a special education teacher before pursuing a career in adult films.
