Gavin DeGraw Hospitalized After Assault
"Singer Gavin DeGraw was assaulted early Monday in New York City and taken by ambulance to the emergency room.
DeGraw, 34, whose hits include “I Don’t Want to Be” and “Not Over You,” was in stable condition at Bellevue Hospital with a broken nose and cuts to his face, say police.
The assault took place at about 4:30 a.m. in Manhattan, police say. The New York Post reports he was out with friends when he was attacked by a “pack of thugs” on the street and then hit by a taxi as he stumbled away.
His reps say in a statement: “Gavin DeGraw was assaulted … and was taken to the emergency room at Bellevue Hospital by ambulance. He is currently under observation. We have no additional information at this time.”
McGraw has a new album due out in September and has been on tour with Train and Maroon 5.
