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.)
Mariah Carey dislocated her shoulder during a video shoot a couple weeks ago and has since been bringing glamour to all of our lives during her performances with the donning of many a bejeweled and sequined arm slings. However, turns out it’s not all just fun and games – the injury left her with some nerve damage, making it hard to regain movement in her arm. She also cracked a few ribs so she’s in a bit of a state at the moment. :(
Here’s what Nick Cannon had to tell TooFab about his wife’s condition:
toofab: You wife Mariah just dislocated her shoulder, how is she doing after that?
Cannon: She’s doing a lot better, but she still doesn’t have movement in her right arm, there’s nerve damage. Her shoulder is definitely a lot better, back in place, but she also had some cracked ribs. She can’t move. The fact that she doesn’t have use of her right arm right now has been pretty tough on her, but the doctor said with a lot more rest and relaxation she’ll be fine.
Damn, that’s a pretty serious injury. I’m sure it’s even less fun since she has twin toddlers to take care of. Here’s hoping for a speedy recovery!
Poor Mariah Carey – after living it up on the 4th of July, she dislocated her shoulder while filming her new music video on Sunday and was rushed to hospital. Oh no! Don’t worry, she’s okay now!
From The New York Post:
The superstar was rushed to New York’s Hospital for Special Surgery on the Upper East Side late last night to have her shoulder reset after she fell while filming a video for the remix of her song #Beautiful.
Carey’s spokeswoman Cindi Berger said, “Mariah was injured while filming a video for the remix of #Beautiful, directed by her husband Nick Cannon.
“She was taken to hospital late last night, where doctors reset her shoulder. She is fine and is recovering at home.”
Well, that’s good to hear. Hilariously, her video wasn’t being shot at the Ritz or anything like that – no, filming took place at Avenue and Artichoke Pizza in Chelsea. Amazing! And who doesn’t love pizza?
