HOSPITAL CHRONICLES: Juicy J Cancels Show Due To Exhaustion + “LAHH Hollywood” Star Hazel-E Breaks Her Nose

 photo injur1.png

Juicy J was rushed to the hospital Saturday night, causing him to cancel his show in San Francisco. Meanwhile, “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” star Hazel-E broke her nose after she was thrown off an ATV in Dubai. Deets inside…

Sometimes the “turn up” can land you in a hospital bed if you’re not careful. And that’s exactly what happened to down south rapper Juicy J.

Juicy was rushed to Saint Francis Memorial hospital in San Francisco Saturday night after complaining of shortness of breath. He took to Twitter to update his fans on his condition tweeting:



The “Bandz A Make Her Dance” rapper was scheduled to perform at The Filmore on his “The Hustle Continues” tour, but had to cancel due to exhaustion. He posted a picture of himself laying in a hospital bed with an apology to his fans saying:

The Dr said I'm Exhausted I haven't been getting enough rest but I'll be ok San Fran my Apologies i will make it up #THCTOUR still going strong

Not only was he dealing with exhaustion, the Taylor Gang MC hit the stage in L.A. Friday night with a broken foot after undergoing surgery. He rolled out on stage on a scooter with his injured foot propped up.

But, all seems to be well now. Last night, the “Bounce It” rapper was back performing on stage in Boise, Idaho. He captioned, "Boise Idaho went up!! I love my job! #thehustlecontinues #idontgiveup #legend" The hustle continues. Glad he’s doing better.  

Another injury this Memorial Day Weekend.....

“LAHH: Hollywood” star Hazel-E suffered a major injury while vacaying in Dubai this weekend. The reality star was enjoying a desert safari riding ATVs with friends when she hit a bump that caused her to be thrown from the vehicle, resulting in a broken nose and bruises. Yikes!

 photo injur4.jpg

Hazel was rushed to the hospital after temporarily losing consciousness. According to doctors, Hazel will have to undergo reconstructive surgery to fix her nose. Her friend-turned-enemy and co-star Masika Kalysha got wind of the news on social media and had a few mean words for her injured co-star. She posted a comment in The Shade Room’s comment section saying,

“b*tches love “I was in an accident surgery” gone get the beak hacked in half snuffaluffagus we been waiting girl. we ain’t mad”

Damn. We hope Hazel makes a speedy recovery. Be safe out there guys!

Today, the TV mom received an Honorary Doctorate from her alma mater Brown University where she was a proud graduate back in 1994. Now, 21 years later, the fab actress is being awarded for all of her hard work and contributions in her field of work.

Before hitting the stage, she posted an "us-ie" with her sister Rhonda Ross Kendrick:

She captioned, "Two sister, two Brown Graduates (Class of '93 & '94) but only one Doctor! Hahaha! Not really! Just an #HonoraryDoctor #BrownUniversityGraduation #BrownUniversity"

In recent weeks, Kanye West (The Art Institute of Chicago), Common (Winston-Salem State University) and Cedric the Entertainer (Lincoln University) also nabbed Honorary Doctorates from their respective schools.
