Mel B was recently hospitalized after suffering multiple serious injuries.
The America’s Got Talent judge shared the news on Instagram, uploading a photo of herself with her arm in a sling. In the caption, the Spice Girl wrote that she severed her right hand and broke two ribs; she did not reveal how she suffered the injuries.
“Thank you to all the wonderful nurses, [doctors] and my amazing surgeon for the care and expertise given to me here at the hospital I’ve been staying at, suffering 2 broken ribs and a severed right hand,” Mel wrote.
She went on, “[From] needing [emergency] care, to having had to have over a 3 [hour] surgery to repair the damage, hence the purple sling.”
The singer also apologized to her New York fans who bought tickets to her book signing. She promised to come back once she’s healed.
“I’ve had to unfortunately cancel my book signing today in NY,I [apologize] to each and everyone one of you who bought [their] tickets to meet me today😩I’m absolutely gutted but I can assure you it WILL happen at a later date, I promise, but for now My right arm/hand is all stitched up and I’m trying to keep still to heal my broken ribs, ohhh the pain, but I’m in super safe hands with the care of everyone here at the hospital!!!!!thank you all for understanding, I love you all.”
