Val Kilmer: Michael Douglas Is Sorry for Claiming I Have Cancer 

Val Kilmer Cancels Tour Due to Swollen Tongue, Slurred Speech
Val Kilmer is struggling to speak with a severely swollen tongue...

In recent days, Val Kilmer’s health has come into question. He was forced to cancel his touring version of Citizen Twain due a swollen tongue and slurred speech. Then, late last month, Michael Douglas came forward to confirm that his Ghost and the Darkness co-star does indeed have cancer. However, immediately after Kilmer denied such claims. Now the Batman Forever star has shared with friends and followers on Facebook that Douglas reached out to offer an apology to sharing hearsay.

“Michael Douglas wrote me a nice note apologizing for suggesting to the press overseas, I ‘wasn’t doing too well…’” Kilmer wrote. “And was grateful to hear I am doing well. He’s a classy guy.”

Although this is encouraging to hear, it doesn’t explain what Kilmer is coping with. While previously debunking Douglas’ cancer scare, Kilmer did make brief mention of a lump he was dealing with some time ago.

“That last time I spoke to [Douglas] was almost two years ago, when I asked him for a referral for a specialist to get a diagnosis for a lump in my throat,” he wrote in another Facebook post, via Entertainment Weekly.

Hopefully, we’ll be seeing Kilmer back in action soon.
