George Michael got into a crash last week that initially sounded life-threatening, but now the “Faith” singer is already out of the hospital and headed home.
The crash took place last week in England, and though details are still a bit hazy it appears that the car George Michael was riding in was the only one to crash.
“The exact circumstances of what happened are unclear at this time and until further investigations have been carried out it would be inappropriate for us to comment further,” police said at the time.
But though details were scarce, it was immediately clear that George Michael was hurt in the crash.
“A man who we believe to be in his 40s sustained a head injury and following treatment, stabilization and immobilization by land and air ambulance crews, he was flown to hospital for further care,” said Gary Sanderson, a local ambulance spokesman.
Initial reports said that George Michael’s crash was serious, but it was later revealed that the 49-year-old singer was only being treated for “minor cuts and bruises.”
“George Michael was a passenger in a vehicle involved in a traffic accident yesterday evening, no third party was involved,” a spokesperson for Michael confirmed Friday. “He is being treated for superficial cuts and bruises but is fine.”
Michael’s boyfriend Fadi Fawaz confirmed that the crash wasn’t as bad as it first appeared to be.
“Of course I was worried, but I have spoken to him, and he is good. He suffered a few bruises, but there is nothing to worry about. He’s due out soon, but I don’t know when. I have no idea what happened. I wasn’t there,” Fawaz said from Michael’s home.
George Michael has gotten into a crash before. In 2010 he crashed his car into a Snappy Snaps branch in England and was sentenced to two months in jail for careless driving.
