LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- R&B Singer and “Dancing With the Stars” competitor Mya is recovering after a trip to the hospital Sunday night.
“Went 2 the hospital late last night 2 get stitches. Deep cut from glass. Only caught 2hours of sleep but feel great. Must be adrenaline,” Mya Tweeted on Monday.
The singer, who will compete for dance floor glory on the reality competition premiering tonight on ABC, said there is no need for alarm.
“Nothing to worry about. Just an ugly slice on my finger-not the first time I’ve had stitches. I’ll be just fine. Thanks4the concern,” she said in another Twitter post.
A rep for the ABC series confirmed the incident, telling Access, “She’s fine. Stitches in her finger from broken glass.”
Mya’s slice heard around the Twitterverse wasn’t the first “Dancing” injury to leave one of this season’s competitor’s in stitches.
