Mel B has undergone emergency surgery after suffering three broken ribs and a hand injury.
The 43-year-old singer was forced to cancel a signing of her new memoir Brutally Honest in New York City after revealing she’d been rushed to the hospital for urgent care, though she didn’t explain how she’d acquired her injuries.
She took to Instagram to share a photograph of her right hand while thanking the doctors and nurses for their “wonderful” work but did not explain how the accident occurred.
“Thankyou to all the wonderful nurses dr’s 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 a severed right hand needing emergancy care, to having had to have over a 3 hr surgery to repair the damage hence the purple sling,” she revealed.
“I’ve had to unfortunately cancel my book signing today in NY, I appolagise to each and everyone one of you who bought there 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,” she added.
The “Wannabe” hitmaker later posted a gif of herself alongside her Spice Girls bandmates Geri Horner, Emma Bunton and Mel C when they visited her in hospital after her surgery.
