George Michael was involved in a single car crash in England Thursday. The singer was reportedly airlifted to a hospital with a head injury.
Though it sounds serious, Michael’s rep tells Sky News that the 49-year-old just has “superficial” injuries and should be fine.
Apparently the former Wham! front man was riding as a passenger in a Range Rover that crashed on London’s M1 motorway around 6 p.m. local time.
A rep for the emergency response crew released a statement saying, “[He] sustained a head injury and following treatment, stabilization and immobilization by land and air ambulance crews, he was flown to the hospital for further care.”
Michael’s boyfriend, Fadi Fawaz told The Daily Mail all was well.
“Of course I was worried, but I have spoken to him, and he is good,” he said. “He suffered a few bruises, but there is nothing to worry about. He’s due out soon, but I don’t know when. I have no idea what happened. I wasn’t there.”
The statement from publicist Connie Filippello said no other vehicle was involved in the crash. She declined to provide details about where Michael is hospitalized or when he will be released.
The popular singer has had numerous car-related problems in recent years.
He was imprisoned for eight weeks in 2010 after crashing his Range Rover into a photo shop in north London, pleading guilty to driving under the influence of drugs and possessing marijuana.
He also had received an earlier two-year driving ban for a separate drug-related incident.
