Jimmy Kimmel had an awkward health scare that he was more than willing to share while at South by Southwest Festival (SXSW) in Austin, TX on Monday.
The late-night host revealed that he had two non-elective surgeries on his penis. "It just kind of closed up on its own," Kimmel, 47, told E! Newsof the medical condition involving his urethra. "I don't know why it happened. I still don't know why."
Kimmel said that the second surgery occurred after the first procedure, which was done "a long time ago," didn't pan out. "The guy said: 'Your urethra is closing up and we need to operate on it.' And they did," the father-of-three recalled. "[Then] they said, 'Yeah, we didn't really get it. It didn't quite work. We have to do it again.' And they did it again."
