“Thank you to all the wonderful nurses [doctors] and my amazing surgeon for the care and expertise given to me here at the hospital I’ve been staying at, suffering 2 broken ribs a severed right hand,” Mel wrote. “[From] needing [emergency] care, to having had to have over a 3 [hour] surgery to repair the damage hence the purple sling.

She also apologized to her American fans for missing an important event. “I’ve had to unfortunately cancel my book signing today in NY, “ she wrote. “I [apologize] to each and everyone one of you who bought [their] tickets to meet me today😩I’m absolutely gutted but I can assure you it WILL happen at a later date, I promise.”
