Singer Gavin DeGraw is still being kept under medical observation in Bellevue Hospital in NY, after being attacked by a group of unknown men on early Monday. According to Associated Press, the artist has a broken nose and a cut on his face.
On Monday, a representative of Gavin DeGraw released a statement saying that the “I Don’t Want To Be” singer was rushed to the Bellevue Hospital in an ambulance on Monday morning after being attacked by a group of men in East Village, in New York. The singer was not released from the hospital yet.
According to the police statement, the assault occurred after 3:50 a.m. DeGraw went out drinking with some friends on Sunday night. After splitting from them, he was attacked on the streets of New York’s East Village. The official police reports states that after the assault, he was still able to get up and walk. He was then hit by a taxi, but the impact left minor injuries. The attacker have not been identified yet.
Gavin DeGraw, 34, had to cancel a show in Saratoga Springs that was scheduled for Tuesday. He was supposed to open for Maroon 5 and The Train. On Wednesday, he is scheduled to appear on “Live! With Regis and Kelly”. There is no saying on whether he would be able to honor the invitation at this point, or not. A representative for the singer was not reached to offer further details on his state. The Bellevue Hospital cannot release any details on the patient’s state, either.
The singer is only five weeks away from releasing his new album, on September 20. Billboard says that the songs feature artists such as Ryan Tedder from OneRepublic and is produced by Butch Walker. DeGraw also has in plan to open a new National Underground bar. This would be his second one and will be opened in Nashville (the first one is in Lower East Side of New York).
