Looks like he won’t be smushing anyone for a while.
Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, 27, is being treated for kidney stones in a Florida hospital, his rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.
“Ronnie was admitted to an Orlando area hospital late Saturday night,” the Jersey Shore star’s rep says.
“He’s in a lot of pain and is expected to remain there for several days.”
But he ll soon have some comfort: Longtime girlfriend Sammi “Sweetheart, 26, is on her way to his bedside.
Ortiz-Magro was in Orlando to promote his new alcohol line called Smush Cocktails at the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of America Convention when, on Saturday, “he started feeling uncomfortable,” says his rep.
“It’s a very painful condition,” adds his rep, “but he’s being treated.”
