Singer-actor Mariah Carey was rushed to a hospital last night after she dislocated her shoulder while filming for the music video of the remixed version of her song Beautiful. The 43-year-old singer apparently tumbled, which caused the injury. However, her representative has said that Carey is fine.
“Mariah injured herself while filming a video for the remix of Beautiful, directed by her husband Nick Cannon,” said a rep, quoted New York Post. “She was taken to the hospital late last night (July 7), where doctors reset her shoulder. She is fine and is recovering at home.”
It is believed that she may have fallen due to the high heels that she was wearing for the video shoot.
The injury, however, hasn’t dampened Carey’s spirit and she will take the stage at the Hurricane Sandy benefit concert in Central Park’s Great Lawn on July 13, even if she has to do so with her arm in a sling, said a source.
