Singer George Michael Receives Medical Treatment After Car Crash
British pop star George Michael is receiving medial treatment after a car crash Thursday, according to his publicist.
The former Wham! frontman was treated for "minor cuts and bruises" he sustained in the accident, his spokeswoman said.
"George Michael was a passenger in a vehicle involved in a traffic accident yesterday evening," a spokeswoman said Friday. "No third party was involved."
"He is being treated for superficial cuts and bruises, but is fine," she continued.
The accident occurred just outside London during rush hour and isn't the first troublesome news to surface about the 49-year-old singer, as he has suffered a string of accidents and health scares recently.
George had to cancel his tour of Australia last year due to "major anxiety" brought on by a 2011 battle with pneumonia in Vienna, where he was treated in intensive care for a month due to a life-threatening illness.
The singer's personal life has been in the headlines more often than his music in recent years.
