Jhené Aiko Injured in Car Accident
Jhené Aiko is recovering after being injured in a car accident in Los Angeles on Monday.
The news spread across social media after her friend Miss Diddy tweeted that she had been involved in a “bad car accident.” Her young daughter was riding with her, but was not harmed.
The 25-year-old singer suffered a broken wrist, chipped tooth, and had to get stitches in her chin. She tweeted a photo of herself giving the thumps up in the hospital with cuts and bruises on her face and her arm in a sling. Upon her release, she returned to Twitter to thank her fans for their support.
“thank u all for the prayers . I get to go home …. just a broken wrist , chipped tooth and stitches in my chin,” tweeted Aiko. “most importantly Nami is ok , not a scratch … as she was also in the car , in the backseat with me . I’m also thankful that @sonnieoryan and @miyokochilombo are ok also ! Be safe out there everybody and thank u again for the love.”
Due to her injuries, she has reportedly canceled her show at LSU this week.
Aiko is gearing up for the release of her Sail Out EP, which is set to feature appearances from Kendrick Lamar (“Stay Ready”), Wiz Khalifa (“Hit It Again”), Big Sean, and Ab-Soul.
