After experiencing a broken nose, concussion and various cuts and bruises, singer Gavin DeGraw was released from a NYC hospital yesterday. At first news broke that he was attacked by three men, but as it turns out, he was also hit by a taxi.
Looks like he’s on the road to recovery as Gavin took to Twitter to thank his fans. He tweeted, “Hi my friends. Honestly, I don’t remember much. I only know I can recover from here. Thank u all for your genuine concern. I love u guys.”
Although he doesn’t remember much, it appears Gavin was assaulted by three men in the East Village in the wee hours of the morning on Monday after he left The National Underground, a club he owns along with his brother, Joey DeGraw.
The New York Times reported that Gavin didn’t call the cops right after the attack and instead, walked across the East Village and stood in the middle of the street. At that point, things got worse with a southbound taxi knocked him over! At that point his shirt was already ripped and his face was bloody. Luckily he didn’t sustain serious injuries from the collision but a passerby witnessed the accident and called an ambulance to take him to the hospital.
As reported by Reuters, Gavin has canceled his tour dates on August 12 and 13. He’s the opening act of Maroon 5 and Train’s U.S. tour but according to his spokeswoman, due to the injuries he won’t be performing those particular shows. In a statement she said, “Gavin and his family appreciate everyone’s concern at this time.”
