After missing the 2016 VMAs because of a mysterious hospitalization, Gabby Douglas is finally letting fans know what’s going on. Find out what’s wrong with her and if she’ll be okay here!
“Hey guys! Just wanted to let you know that I’m doing ok!” Gabby Douglas, 20 wrote on Twitter. “I had a complication from a prior injury that caused a cyst to grow on a bone in my mouth. Got it removed and feeling much better now! Thanks for all your concerns and prayers and HUGE thank you to the doctors that have taken care of me these last four days!”
She added that she’s now “on the road to recovery,” but isn’t out of the woods just yet, as she’ll still have to get her wisdom teeth out. Along with the message, Gabby shared a photo of herself getting worked on in a dental chair — poor girl!
Gabby was expected to attend the MTV Video Music Awards with Aly Raisman, 22, Simone Biles, 19, Madison Kocian, 19, and Laurie Hernandez, 16, on Aug. 28. But with just hours to go before showtime, she wrote on Instagram, “Out of the hospital & resting comfortably! #FinalyFive so sad I can’t be with u all to present tonight,” alongside a pic of herself looking exhausted in bed. Later that night, she returned to the hospital with the infection.
Meanwhile, at the show, her teammates walked the red carpet and got to present the Female Video of the Year award to the queen herself, Beyonce! Oh, and they also posed for photos with stars like Kim Kardashian, 35, Kanye West, 29, Ariana Grande, 23, and SO many more. Gabby missed what was surely a great night, but we just hope she’s doing well at home and resting up now!
