On April Fool’s Day, the joke was on Machine Gun Kelly – and the Cleveland rapper found himself in the hospital with a broken foot and a fractured ankle. Ouch! Not that it’s ever really a “good time” to be totally inconvenienced with a major injury, but during a month where he has multiple tour dates (check them out and buy tix here!), studio sessions for his sophomore album, video shoots and his BIRTHDAY, it makes it that much more of a nuisance. Kels isn’t letting his crutches or his wheelchair stop him, though, and has made sure to handle every priority…except getting surgery yet.
“Broke the 5th metatarsal in my foot as well as fractured another bone in my ankle a couple days ago,” Kels told his EST fans. “Doc said no shows for a month but I know a lot of my shows are THIS month. I haven’t gotten surgery yet and I avoided getting the plaster cast so I could fly with it when it swells up from the altitude pressure, but long story short, I’m here and ready to perform. I just ask that you as fans be patient with me this next month or two while I wobble around with this bullsh*t on stage! Lace up.”
Now THAT’S dedication. As the saying goes, “One monkey don’t stop no show!” Check out pics in the gallery to see how MGK is handling everything with his injury. Get well soon!
