Rapper Pitbull was forced to pull out of a show in New York on Tuesday night (05Oct10) after fracturing his hand in a bizarre accident at home.
Pitbull was scheduled to take the stage with Drake and Trey Songz at the Kodak-sponsored concert in Times Square, but he was a no-show - and even his stagemates were unclear as to why he wasn't there.
Now, the hip-hop star reveals he was in the hospital at showtime - and has been forced to scrap his upcoming concerts.
He says, "There was an accident at my house and I fractured my hand. I had to go and get surgery done. It's the new type of surgery they're doing now and I get to take the cast off in a week and a half."
Pitbull's doctors have even forbidden the star from flying.
He adds, "The thing is it can get swollen and if it gets swollen they have to do the whole process (again), so I won't be performing until they take off the cast."
But he's refusing to go into details about how he injured his hand.
He tells MTV, "I wish it was a sexual accident, that would have been great."
