Suffering two broken ribs, a severed right hand needing emergency care, to having had to have over a 3 hr surgery to repair the damage hence the purple sling.”
“For now my right hand/arm is all stitched up and I’m trying to keep still to heal my broken ribs, ohhh the pain, but I’m in super safe hands with the care of everyone here at the hospital!!!!!” she continued.
Mel added she had been forced to cancel a New York signing for her new autobiography Brutally Honest, continuing: “I’ve had to unfortunately cancel my book signing today in NY, I apologise to each and everyone of you who bought their tickets to meet me today. I’m absolutely gutted but I can assure you it WILL happen at a later date. I promise.”
