Mariah Carey Is Slowly Getting Better After Her On-Set Injury

Mariah Carey cracked some ribs and dislocated her shoulder during a music video shoot a couple of months ago, leaving her with nerve damage and trouble moving her arm and hands. Serious shit! While she’s managed to make the best of it with bejeweled slings and the like, recovery has been slow-going… but she’s getting there!

Here’s the update husband Nick Cannon gave ET Online:

“My wife is doing a lot, lot better. The physical therapy is definitely working.

“At [the recent premiere of Lee Daniels’ The Butler], she still couldn’t really move her right hand, but now she’s got a little bit of the functionality of her hand back. She’s still got the blinged-out slings, but hopefully she won’t need those pretty soon!”

Aw, poor Mariah. Having been temporarily disabled when I broke my ankle, I know how tough that shit can be, so here’s hoping she’s better soon. (I don’t know why I’m feeling so empathetic today, so let’s just go with it.)
