Over the course of her tenure as a judge on American Idol
, Paula Abdul
had unluckily endured a series of odd injuries and unusual complaints. While her addition on American Idol
had never been proven to cause the ill-fated incidents, one might wonder on the probability of Abdul’s recurring injuries. Most recently, she took a bad fall over the weekend as she was trying to avoid stumbling over one of her dogs. Unfortunately, her plunge resulted in a broken nose.
Abdul’s representative told E! News, "She tripped to avoid stepping on Tulip, one of her Chihuahuas. She is fine. This will have no effect whatsoever on her appearance on American Idol tomorrow and Wednesday for the finale." The representative also mentioned that the 44-year old TV personality was not hospitalized for her injury.
Prior to her pooch-related incident, Abdul contracted a fungal infection while getting a manicure at a salon, which resulted to her right thumbnail being removed. This was during the third season of American Idol
. The following season, she disclosed that she had been suffering from a distinct neurological disorder called CRPS, or complex regional pain syndrome, which caused her chronic pain. In 2006, she failed to attend to a press conference due to an eye infection. And later that year, she filed a police report claiming that she hurt her back and had suffered a concussion when she was thrown into a wall at a club.
Abdul, a native of San Fernando, California, worked as a choreographer prior to her participation on American Idol
. She choreographed for music videos of Duran Duran, Heart, Prince, The Jacksons, and George Michael just to name a few. She was also known as a multi-platinum Grammy-winning singer who sold over 53 million records.
