Hollywoodnews.com: Singer Gavin DeGraw remains hospitalized after being jumped by a group of unidentified men in New York City’s East Village early Monday morning.
Spokesmen for the artist released a statement explaining that the “I Don’t Want to Be” singer had been “taken to Bellevue Hospital in an ambulance and is still being held for observation,” MTV reports. As a result of the attack, DeGraw had to cancel a Tuesday show in Saratoga Springs, NY, as well as television appearances on “Live! With Regis and Kelly.”
The New York Post had the most details, reporting that the pop singer “had been drinking and just left a group of pals when he was attacked by the marauding perps sometime between 3:50 and 4:20 a.m. at 6th Street and 1st Avenue. … He had his nose broken and suffered cuts on his face. … The creeps then fled, and the dazed singer, whose hit song ‘Chariot’ went platinum, kept walking, sources said. … He wound up at 19th Street and 1st Avenue, where he was struck by a cab, although not seriously.”
