Prayers up to Larry King.
After announcing the sad news surrounding John Singelton, it looks as though another beloved name in the industry is dealing with health issues as well. TMZ reports that Larry King suffered a heart attack last week on Thursday, sending him into cardiac arrest. A source close to the famed television host details how Larry has been having trouble breathing for months now and was planning on checking himself into the hospital.
While he was getting ready to head to his appointment, his heart gave out and he was rushed to the hospital by an ambulance. While admitted, Larry has to undergo an angioplasty, a procedure that restores blood flow to your arteries. Larry has now been placed in a cardiac intensive care unit, where he's set to be released Monday.

The publication adds how Larry has been visiting a doctor for the past six months to help with his breathing problems. Larry has had two heart attacks before and has bounced back fine after each attack. He previously stated that he changed his lifestyle after the first heart attack, cutting back greasy foods, killing his cigarette addiction and adding more exercise in his life.
“All movement, whether it’s dancing, swimming, or walking, helps health,” he said. “People don’t think of it, but when you go out dancing, you’re helping yourself. And you have fun."
“I like swing, a lot of the Latin dances, and I like to dance to Sinatra,” he continued. “I like dancing where you touch the other person, where we can sway.”
