Kris Allen, the season 8 winner of “American Idol”, was involved in a serious car accident on New Year’s Day which left him pretty banged up.
Allen and his wife Katy–who is pregnant–were the victims of a head-on collision which sent him to the hospital with a broken arm, and although he’ll have to have surgery, he assured his fans via Twitter that his tour is still on. Luckily, Katy and the couple’s dog, Zorro, are a little bruised up but are otherwise okay.
Yes I got in a really bad wreck tonight and yes I’m having a lil baby. #gonnabeadaddy
Don’t worry everyone I may have broken my wrist but the #OutAliveTour is still on.
While the driven singer may not want to postpone his tour, his mom Kimberly says he may not be able to play guitar for a while, which will definitely make things difficult over the next couple of months.
