Gavin DeGraw Hospitalized After Assault

Gavin DeGraw is recovering in a NYC hospital after he was assaulted early Monday morning (August 8), according to his reps.

The 34-year-old singer was “beaten by a pack of thugs” around 4:30 a.m. in Manhattan and then hit by a taxi as he stumbled away, according to the NY Post.

Gavin “was taken to the emergency room at Bellevue Hospital by ambulance. He is currently under observation,” his reps said in a statement.

Police sources said Gavin, who has been on tour with Train and Maroon 5, suffered a broken nose and cuts on his face.

Get well soon Gavin :( So sad to hear about this. I’ve seen Gavin live a couple times and met him before more than once and he’s always been such a sweet guy haha and always calling you ‘darlin’ when you’d talk to him which always stood out to me. I really hope they get the guys who did this and Gavin gets better asap

Maybe he shouldn’t have been out by himself at 4:30am?

Aww I just met him at a meet & greet. One of the nicest guys! I wish him a speedy recovery!!

Read black thugs of course.

Artists should have security with them at all time! This is sickening to here, and THEN hit by a taxi on top of it… WOW!!

I hope he gets better soon.

@FFer: Racist loser.

This is so awful, I love Gavin and his music (especially the Chariot album). A few years ago he performed at my university and was amazing. Then afterward he hung out at a local bar with a bunch of students. I didn’t get to meet him but he seems like a nice, regular guy. Here’s wishing him a speedy recovery.

OMG that’s horrible! I hope he recovers soon! He’s such an awesome singer and performer.
