We’re so glad she’s okay! Lea Michele was involved in a car accident around 2 am in the morning yesterday in L.A. The actress was in her car, when a couple of drunk girls drove into her. Fortunately, she walked out unscathed, and her rep verified, “Lea was hit and notified the police. She was not injured and is fine.”
Apparently, the inebriated girls had no idea that they could’ve done a lot worse. A source revealed, “A couple of drunks girls hit her, got out of the car, giggled that she was famous, said something like ‘are you drunk, too?’ Then they drove off.” If that’s true, then it’s amazing how Lea kept her cool considering this isn’t the first time she’s been in a wreck. Lea had a pretty bad accident when she was auditioning for Glee as well. As for the drunk posse — next time, take a cab, you morons.
Oh. My. God. Now we’re just feeling awful about what we said about Hugh Jackman high-kicking in our Oprah Winfrey-Russell Crowe post yesterday. The Wolverine star made a spectacular surprise appearance on O’ s set down under, sailing in on a flying fox towards front of the Sydney Opera House (as seen in the picture above). Unfortunately, something malfunctioned, and in the resulting accident, Hugh seriously injured his eye. The story is that Hugh came zooming in, but something was wrong with the mechanics, and he couldn’t slow down as he approached the landing. Ok, hold on. Imagine the earth coming up at you at high speed. Terrifying.
Hugh, fortunately, came to a sudden stop, but apparently ended up hitting a studio light with his leg which in turn chucked a fragment into his eye. We’re feeling sick at the thought of what would have happened if the apparatus didn’t stop. Hugh’s kids were in the audience and had to watch their Dad bleeding from a cut above his right eye. The actor still has his sense of humor, though. He ended up cracking, “That was so much fun until the end.” Oprah acted as his ministering angel until the paramedics arrived, wiping his head and in pure-O style (she always knows just what to do), said, “Let’s get some ice otherwise its going to swell.”
Hugh, we love you. Seriously. High-kicks and all. Feel better soon.
Thank God she’s ok! Pink had a scary accident on stage in Nurnberg, Germany, that could have turned out far worse than it did. At one point in the show, two dancers attached Pink to a harness and they ran her into a running leap, expecting her to go up. Unfortunately the harness wasn’t attached properly and Pink was thrown off the high stage and into a barricade. The video reveals one of the dancers falling off as well. We hope she’s ok too.
Her mic was still on, and the shocked audience heard Pink gasping in pain, saying, “F**k, I hurt like a motherf****r, sorry I’m cursing”. Folks cheered her on, shouting their sympathy, as she eventually walked back to the stage, still bent with pain.
She couldn’t complete the show and was taken away in an ambulance. She did tweet out her apologies, though, writing, “To all my nurnberg fans- I am so so so sorry to end the show that way.I am embarassed and very sorry. I’m in ambulance now but I will b fine.” She tweeted once again, while in hospital saying, “didn’t get clipped in2 harness correctly,drug me off stage, fell in2 barricade. Getting xrays.I hope it at least looked cool!!!” Once she got her diagnosis, the singer was back on her Twitter reassuring fans with, “Ok all my lovers out there- nothings broken, no fluid in the lungs, just seriously sore. I made that barricade my b*tch!!!! Thanx nurnberg:(”
Her husband Carey Hart also tweeted to a friend, writing, “took the narliest slam off the stage! The cable on the harness that takes her in the air malfunctioned. Drug her into barrier.” He then updated his Twitter status with, “Fyi @pink is out of the hospital and all good. Just got the shit kicked out of her by the barrier. Steel barrier-1 Pink-0″ The singer is one tough cookie, because this isn’t the first time she’s had a bad accident on stage. She had a separated shoulder from her aeriel-stunt heavy show during her Funhouse tour. A video of the accident surfaced on YouTube today, check out Pink’s harness malfunction and her badass instant recovery from a front-row vantage point after the jump.
