Jordin Sparks is nursing a bruised leg after a terrifying run-in with a pitbull at the weekend (12Sep10), when an unleashed dog locked its jaw around her limb.
The former American Idol winner took her own pet pooch to a New York City park on Sunday (12Sep10), where it could play with other dogs - but an untrained pit ruined the outing when it ran up to Sparks and bit her.
Showing off a marking on her left leg during an appearance on Wendy Williams' U.S. chat show on Monday (13Sep10), she explained, "You see this bruise right here? A New York experience. I took my dog to the dog park and I got bit by a pitbull. Yesterday!"
But Sparks has brushed off the incident since the animal didn't draw blood: "He didn't break the skin, thank goodness."
