Mariah Carey Hospitalized — MiMi Dislocates Shoulder On Music Video Set
“Mariah injured herself while filming a video with Jeezy for the remix of #Beautiful, directed by her husband Nick Cannon,” the singer’s rep tells HollywoodLife.com. “She was taken to hospital late last night, where doctors reset her shoulder. She is fine.”
UPDATE: Mariah also broke a rib, but went right back to work, Nick confirmed on the Today show on July 9.
Mariah, 40, was filming the video in NYC at Avenue and Artichoke Pizza in Chelsea. She was taken to a hospital in the Upper East Side for special surgery, according to The New York Post. The accident may have been due to Mariah taking a tumble in her heels, a source tells the newspaper.
Despite her injury, Mariah is still expected to perform a free concert with Major League Baseball to benefit Hurricane Sandy Relief in Central Park’s Great Lawn on July 13! (She’s such a trooper.)
“She will perform, but it is likely she will have her arm in a sling,” a source added.
“#Beautiful,” which Mariah originally recorded with Miguel, is the lead single for her upcoming album The Art of Letting Go.
We hope Mariah has a speedy recovery. What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you excited for Mariah’s new album?
