Kris Allen and his pregnant wife Katy, were involved in a car accident on New Years Day. The head-on collision left Allen with a broken arm, and his wife with unspecified injuries. Kris’ mother tweeted an update: “From Kris: he’s in a lot of pain, arm broke, may not play guitar for a while. Prayers welcome please!
The “American Idol’ alum posted an update on Twitter, letting fans know that he was okay, as was his wife and their dog, Zorro. The singer, who won a Ford car after winning American Idol in 2009, thanked the car company following the crash. “Thank you @Ford for equipping me with a car that kept my whole family @katyallen @ZorroPup and the little one we have on the way safe.”
Allen also confirmed his show will go on, “Don’t worry everyone I may have broken my wrist but the #OutAliveTour is still on.”
Allen is set to undergo surgery Wednesday. He is scheduled to perform in Boston on Jan. 9.
The car accident was not the only bad luck the singer has faced recently. In September, Allen split from his record label, RCA Records, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “There are so many people there that contributed to my becoming the artist that I am and I will miss them all,” he said at the time. “In saying that, I am really excited about what is ahead. The path has never been clearer to me. I love what I do and I will never stop.”
Hopefully everything is okay with his unborn baby!
