Post Malone Bruises Ribs, Taken to Hospitalq

Post Malone

Post Malone is hospitalized a week after his rib injury on stage.

The rapper, born Austin Post, postponed a show in Boston on Saturday night after he awoke to “cracking sounds on the right side of my body” and suffered from a stabbing pain. 

“I felt so good last night, but today it felt so different than it has before,” he wrote on Twitter. “I’m having a very difficult time breathing, and there’s like stabbing pain whenever I breathe or move.” 

According to the singer, he was hospitalized and apologized to fans for showing the show at TD Garden, stressing that tickets will be valid for a new date when it becomes available.

“I’m so f—ing sorry. I love y’all so much. I feel terrible, but I promise I’m going to make this up to you,” he said. 

Malone received medical treatment on September 17 after tripping over an opening used to lower his guitar on the stage of his show at the St. Louis Enterprise Center.

“Thank you for putting up with my dumbass,” he stated in a clip posted on Twitter during that time. “There’s this big ass hole so I go around here and turn the corner and bust my ass… winded me pretty good.” 

Announcing that he’s just returned from the hospital, Malone vouched to fans that “everything’s good” and “we can keep kicking ass on the tour.” 

Malone apparently regrets the incident for the concert-goers: “Thanks so much for coming to the show,” he stated. “Next time I’m around, we’re going to do a two-hour show for you so we can make up for the couple missed songs.”

Malone Tripped

While singing “Circles,” the musician tripped on a hole and fell hard on his ribs. For minutes, he laid on stage as medics hurried to help him. He was then brought off stage and, after a few minutes, went back and resumed his performance with “Rockstar” and “Cooped Up.” 

During his performance, he held his ribs and winced a few times, per attendees on social media. 

Dre London, Malone’s manager, attested that his ribs were bruised. Luckily, it was not broken. 

“Thank you everyone for all your well wishes!” London said on Instagram, captioning a photo of the two backstage. 

“In true Posty fashion loving his fans he finished the show! I truly don’t know any artist like him. Talking to him few hrs ago he was still saying Dre don’t go hard on em’ explain more then saying[,] ‘the show must go on!’ let’s all keep him in our thoughts as we know he will wake up in pain.”
