He was transferred into the intensive care unit and immediately taken in for surgery, and then later underwent a second procedure.

“Jeremy just came out of his second surgery and he was informed that everything went smoothly,” his manager Mike Esterman told TMZ.

“Ron is now resting with complete privacy and no visitors.”

Describing the incident, Esterman added: “He just felt chest pains, like a very heavy weight.”

Jeremy, born Ron Jeremy Hyatt, has been an icon in the porn industry for three decades, having starred in over 2000 adult films.

Nicknamed 'the hedgehog', he left behind a career in teaching to pursue pornography, and has a bachelor's degree in education and theatre, and a masters in special education.
