New York Madonna's 47th birthday celebration was marred when she suffered several broken bones in a horse riding accident at her country home outside London, her publicist said on Tuesday.
The superstar was hospitalized with three cracked ribs, a broken collarbone and a broken hand, according to Liz Rosenberg, her spokeswoman based in New York.
The accident occurred Tuesday at Ashcombe house, her estate outside of London.
Madonna and an assistant were riding horses, when Madonna, on a new horse she wasn't accustomed to riding, took a tumble. Her children, Rocco and Lourdes, were at the home but were not with their mother at the time, Rosenberg said.
The whole family was out in the country, celebrating her birthday, Rosenberg said.
Her husband, director Guy Ritchie, took Madonna to an undisclosed hospital, where she was treated. Rosenberg said the entertainer was expected to be released later in the evening.
Did the horse fall off of her?
maybe it was a mare? Kinky, that.
Wow 47. Ha ha ha. Madonna is an old lady. Father Time is breathing down her neck. She'll have to get all the sluttin in she can in the next few years. It's hard to be "like a virgin" when you have osteoporosis.
Then again, getting old isn't too bad, at least she'll get her monthly handout from the Feds.
Maddona's Osteoporosis must be a bitch.
What's next the ol' hip Govenor?
Now she will become a spokesperson for the broken-ribs charity organizations, I expect.
damn shame she didn't break her neck....
I wonder if the expletives flowed forth from her mouth with a proper English accent or a Detroit one.
We should be happy that she's moved out of the US...
That can't be topped....LOL!
Her talent is being able to market herself.
It's an enormous talent considering that SHE has no singing or acting talent whatsoever.
She marketed herself as a singing slut. She DID get it half right.
All the movies she did were a bust, like her party.
I pity her children. They are doomed.
Hey, I broke my ankle a few years ago. How come I didn't have the paparazzi after me? :)
Isn't that how Christopher Reeve got done in?
More likely another example of a celebrity convinced they could do anything, such as riding a horse they were not capable of handling.
Yeah, he fell on the back of his head, arse over teakettle, as they say.
Wasn't it about this time last year that Ozzy tried to do himself in on an ATV (as opposed to the booze)?
But I cracked my knee, both wrists hit the ground and eventually I did a face plant too.
Not news, and nothing broken.
However, it's nothing to be joking about.
