The “Chariot” singer was apparently assaulted by a “group of assailants” in the East Village, his rep said. DeGraw then wandered a few blocks away from the scene of the attack and was hit by a cab, the Hollywood Reporter reports. A witness called 911 and the musician was taken to Bellevue Hospital.
DeGraw suffered a broken nose, concussion, black eyes and cuts. No arrests have been made at this time.
“Hi my friends. Honestly, I don't remember much. I only know I can recover from here,” DeGraw tweeted Tuesday. “Thank u all for your genuine concern. I love u guys.”
DeGraw was forced to cancel tour performances with Maroon 5 and Train scheduled for this week. His new album, “Sweeter,” will be released next month.
