Enrique Igelsias Hand Injury ”Worse” Than Expected

Enrique Iglesias in Concert on CBS' "The Early Show" - July 16, 2010

Enrique Iglesias may have continued performing after suffering a hand injury, but the slice by a drone was worse than expected and required surgery. His rep released a statement, “Thank you to all for your concern and good wishes. Enrique is currently undergoing reconstructive hand surgery today. He will resume his tour July 3rd in Mexico City. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers.”

Iglesias’ team then released a longer update on his Instagram page, “We wanted to give you a personal update about his condition. His recent surgery lasted longer than expected since the damage ended up being a bit worse than initially assessed. He suffered a fracture that needed to be corrected in addition to the reconstructive surgery. He will be recovering during the next few weeks, but a full recovery is anticipated. – Team Enrique.”

He has about a month to recover until his next performance in July.
