By Rosalyn Oshmyansky
Val Kilmer is thankful for the support after it was revealed he taken to an intensive care unit.
The Top Gun actor took to Facebook on Saturday to deny reports of a throat tumor, which was previously reported by TMZ as the reason for his visit.
"Thank you for all your sweet support. But I have not had a tumor, or a tumor operations, or any operation," he wrote. "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."
