Gavin was rushed to NYC’s Bellevue Hospital, where he was treated for a broken nose. We’re wishing him a fast recovery.

Though specific details are still unclear, 34-year-old rocker Gavin DeGraw was attacked late Aug. 7 in New York City’s East Village. Gavin is “currently under observation” at Bellevue Hospital, according to a statement from his rep.

Gavin was listed in stable condition and treated for a broken nose, as well as multiple facial cuts. No information is known about his attackers — neither their identities, nor the number of people involved — but a spokesperson for the New York Police Department did confirm Gavin had just left a group of friends before the attack.

Gavin, whose 2004 hit “I Don’t Wanna Be” served as the theme song for the long-running teen drama One Tree Hill, has plans to release his next album, Sweeter, on Sept. 20. We wish him a speedy recovery, and hope he can soon return to doing what he loves most.
