Dying Val Kilmer In Denial

Frail “Top Gun” star Val Kilmer is so shockingly ill that medical experts are arranging end-of-life care for the actor, The National ENQUIRER can exclusively reveal!

But despite his desperate condition from a deadly throat tumor, Val has been trying to “talk” and “meditate” his crippling condition away, sources said.

The once-macho actor, 55, was admitted to UCLA Medical Center at the end of October under the name “Oscar Davis,” according to an eyewitness.

“Kilmer could barely speak,” the insider said, noting Val was hooked up to a tracheostomy tube and other machines “as he was wheeled through the ICU on a gurney.

“The medics were discussing ‘comfort care.’”

The ENQUIRER previously reported that doctors found the tumor after Val was rushed to the hospital on Jan. 26.

Val’s mother, Gladys Leach, confirmed he had a throat tumor and a tracheotomy.

The devout Christian Scientist has refused traditional medical treatments and is relying on the healing power of prayer, divulged insiders.

“Val ‘talks’ to the illness, and meditates on it,” said a source.

“He’s been putting up a great battle,” a friend revealed, adding, “He’s wasting away.”

Yet the actor continues to downplay his condition, telling Facebook fans: “There’s a rumor I’m unwell again and in the hospital, which is totally untrue. I was in to verify I have no tumor or infection of any kind.”

But a pal said Val is in deep denial: “Sadly, I don’t think anything will save him now!”
