Oct 28, 2011 – American Idol Judge, Steven Tyler Loses Teeth In A Terrible Fall
Famous musician and The American Idol Show judge, Steven Tyler on Tues got involved in a terrible bathing room mishap that wrapped up with a black eye and 2 missing teeth.
The Sixty three year-old star, who’s on a live concert tour in Paraguay contacted NBC’s Today show to guarantee his supporters that he’s doing ok. Conveying the circumstance to the show host Matt Lauer, Tyler stated:
‘I went in looking like Baryshnikov,and walked out looking like [boxer] Leon Spinks!
Just quite frankly I passed out… I fell on my face, I woke up with the water running on me, not knowing where the hell I was.’
Matt Lauer also discussed the growing gossip that his fall was due to of a substance abuse relapse, he said:
‘Being in the program I’m in, it’s something we have to accept. I went public with my problems only to address them straight on — people thinking [I relapsed] is natural and normal.’
‘It still bothers me a little, but it’s something I’ll have to deal with the rest of my life.’
Tyler was taken care of by a Paraguay based dental professional who replaced his lost teeth and sent him to the hospital for CT scan which gave him a thoroughly clean bill. He was back on the stage on Wed night performing at his very best..(cursing and screaming).
