Hustler kingpin Larry Flynt was rushed to a Los Angeles-area hospital Emergency Room on Saturday afternoon, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
While his ailment and current condition remains a mystery, it appears that Flynt was driven to the hospital in his own car, and not taken by ambulance, according to a RadarOnline.com source.
He was said to be moaning in pain before being driven to medical care.
The 66-year-old is paralyzed from the waist down, the result of a 1978 assassination attempt. He is head of Larry Flynt Publications, which counts Hustler magazine as its crown jewel, and is reported to average $300 million per year in revenue.
The Hustler brand includes the magazine, novelty shops and even a Gentleman’s Club.
Flynt has been married five times, and is father to five children. His current wife, Elizabeth Berrios, has been his bride since 1998. The porn mogul has been a perpetual presence in American courts throughout the decades, pushing boundaries with his depictions of sex and issues of free speech.
His life was chronicled in the film The People vs. Larry Flynt, where the mogul was played by Woody Harrelson.
NL- I wish Larry a speedy recovery. I think if I had to pick one person who had given the most for my personal favorite cause of Freedom of Speech it would be him. Get well soon Larry, we need you!
