by (@unclegrambo)

We’d like to pass along our sincere wishes for a speedy recovery to Gavin DeGraw this morning, who is currently recovering in Bellevue Hospital after a night in which he was beaten up by thugs and then hit by a taxi. Both the New York Post and New York Daily News are reporting that popular singer, who is in stable condition, was out drinking with a group of friends in New York’s East Village late Sunday night when he was attacked by a group of men sometime around 4 a.m. He suffered a broken nose and other facial lacerations, but somehow managed to escape. Then, in an unfortunate twist, he got hit by a taxi cab, at which point he was transported by ambulance to the hospital.

His reps released the following statement:

“Gavin DeGraw is currently recovering and in stable condition at Bellevue Hospital where he was taken late Sunday night by ambulance after he was attacked by a group of assailants. He suffers from a concussion, broken nose, black eyes, cuts and bruises. The police are conducting an investigation of the attack.

Gavin and his family appreciate everyone’s concern at this time. We have no information yet regarding his upcoming concert dates and promotion for his new album.”

If you’d like to leave your well wishes with Gavin, our August Posted artist, please do so in the comments below and we’ll make sure to send them along to him as he recuperates. Again, everyone here at VH1 wishes Gavin a speedy and full recovery, and we’ll be sure to share more information on this incident with you as it emerges.
