Jerry Stiller, 91, rushed to hospital for medical emergency


Comedy legend Jerry Stiller is said to be "doing well" after a health scare that left him hospitalised.

The beloved Seinfeld star's condition was reported to be serious.

Jerry is reportedly healthy and due to be released from hospital in the coming days.

Stiller's family was with him Wednesday night, the source added.

A different source told Page Six that he "had some sort of episode and they wanted to be cautious".

The source added that he is now under observation and expected to be released by this weekend.


Stiller is perhaps best known for playing George Costanza's on the hit sitcom Seinfeld, but he has appeared in other shows such as King of Queens and multiple feature films.

But friends of the comic have told reporters that he is OK, and is expected to return home within a couple of days.

"There are no signs of a stroke".

Stiller picked up an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Guest Actor In A Comedy Series during his tenure on Seinfield.

The 91-year-old Seinfeld actor was rushed to hospital "after the person he was with grew concerned about his health", according to NY Daily News.

The pair also shared a daughter, actress Amy Stiller.
