A cast member from MTV's now-defunctseries has taken ill.
"He's in a lot of pain and is expected to remain there for several days," the rep added.
On Sunday, the 27-year-old reality TV star took to Twitter to share his pain with his fans:
Wouldn't wish this feeling on anyone! #KidneysFML— Ronnie Magro (@MTVRonnie) April 28, 2013
His longtime girlfriend and "Jersey Shore" co-star, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, has been at his side through his hospital ordeal.
Ortiz-Magro was in Miami to promote his line of Smush Cocktails, a brand of low-calorie alcoholic beverages.
