Rapper Boosie Badazz hosted a Thanksgiving party at a South Carolina nightclub in a wheelchair on Thursday.

Boosie assured friends and fans he's well on the way to recovering from surgeries, but h will need one more surgery.

He hosted a Thanksgiving Bash at the Exquis Event Center in Charleston, South Carolina. Video shot by a club patron shows Boosie's crew wheeling him into the venue.

Boosie is planning to throw another bash to celebrate his birthday at a club in Alabama on Saturday.

The 38-year-old father-of-seven recently shared with fans that he needs a couple hundred thousand dollars to pay a specialist to save his leg from amputation after he was shot in Dallas, Texas earlier this month.

He underwent multiple surgeries, including one to remove bullet fragments and had screws placed to stabilize his bone, according to TMZ.

Another Instagram video shows Boosie's mother massaging his foot to increase circulation. Boosie is a type 1 diabetic who underwent a kidney transplant in 2015. Diabetics tend to heal very slowly due to poor circulation and low tissue perfusion.

Boosie Badazz updated his fans on his condition after undergoing two surgical procedures to save his leg.

The 38-year-old rapper hopes his social media followers will help him raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to save his leg from amputation.

Boosie, who is a type 1 diabetic, was shot in the lower leg by an unknown gunman in a Dallas parking lot on Nov. 14.

In an Instagram post on Friday, Boosie, real name Torrence Hatch Jr., told his followers he is "not doing that good," and he doesn't have much time to find a specialist before he loses that leg.

Boosie said he needs a ton of money from his fans to pay for a "Specialist doctor" who works on "fixing body parts."

Sources tell TMZ bullet fragments were removed from his leg wound and surgeons added screws to stabilize the bones while the leg heals.

But type I diabetics are notoriously slow to heal, particularly after suffering a traumatic injury.

Boosie's doctors reportedly gave him medical options including amputation, but he declined, and was discharged home to Atlanta.

Now the "Wipe Me Down" rapper is searching for a specialist to save his leg from amputation.

Surgeons have saved rapper Boosie Badazz's foot from amputation after the Louisiana rapper was shot in the leg in a Dallas, Texas parking lot on Nov. 14.

The rap star is already back home in the Atlanta area recovering after multiple surgeries to save his foot.

Sources tell TMZ bullet fragments were removed and surgeons added screws to stabilize the bones while the leg heals.

The 38 year old and his entourage were fired upon in the parking lot of Big T's Plaza shopping mall, after paying his respects to his artist, the late rapper Mo3, who was shot and killed on a Dallas freeway days before.

Boosie was sitting in a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van before the shooting at the mall and, after shooters opened fire on the vehicle, the musician was struck below the knee.

His manager denied reports that surgeons were prepping to take the "Wipe Me Down" rapper's foot.

So far, no suspects have been arrested in the case.

Sean Combs was forced to cancel his appearance at a party on Friday night after he tripped and fell, suffering an injury to his quadriceps, the large muscle group in his thigh.

The injury was the perfect opportunity for the Instagram showman to garner sympathy for himself.

Just 24 hours earlier, Combs, 50, was the laughing stock of the Internet after Nipsey Hussle's widow, Lauren London, curved him on Instagram.com.

Combs was humiliated on Thursday, when he tried to start a rumor by posting and deleting a B&W photo of himself admiring Lauren London.

London, 35, took to Instagram to set Combs straight and to assure her fans that she is still mourning the love of her life, Nipsey, who was gunned down by a rival gang banger on March 31, 2019.

"I'm all love and peace but never forget....I'm a woman in grief and I don't play about Nip, my family , my character and code," London said.

She added: "Stop f*cking with me and my name. Now let me get back to healing.”

Combs took to Instagram on Friday to share various clips from his hospital bed as he prepared to go under the knife to repair the leg injury, telling fans he's "probably one of the most accident prone people in the world".

"Yes, I'm accident prone... I'm clumsy, I trip, I fall, I fall in holes. It's always been like that," he said in one video, where he listed his surgeries over the years.

"I've had two rotator cuffs, a knee replacement, and now it's on quad. At the end of the day this is God's work to slow me down and take better care of body and ya know, eat right and just stop treating my body like a machine," he said.

In one video, Combs, wearing a blue surgical cap and gown, promoted his upcoming talent competition reality show. He explained he's holding auditions for talented R&B singers. The first stop is in Atlanta next week.

Genea Sky, the Dallas stripper who fell 20 feet from a stripper pole and fractured her jaw, had reconstructive surgery, thanks to $32,000 in donations to her GoFundMe account.

Sky suffered a broken jaw when she fell off the pole while entertaining a packed house at the XTC Cabaret in Dallas. But, she got up and continued twerking, because a working girl has bills to pay.

Some skeptics doubted Sky injured herself during the fall, so she posted an image of herself giving a thumbs up from her hospital bed.

"Today has been a very long day. My surgery went well," Sky wrote in an Instagram post on Monday. "My jaw is currently wired shut so please refrain from calling me as of right now and bare with me on replies because my phone hasn't stopped blowing up."

Earlier, Sky thanked her fans after the video of her fall went viral.

"Originally I didn't plan on posting about this situation at all," she said in a YouTube video. "But obviously the video has gone viral and I'm getting a lot of messages asking me if I'm ok. I pretty much broke my jaw and I have to have surgery on it [on Monday]," she said. "Aside from that, I'm good."

Today has been a very long day. My surgery went well. My jaw is currently wired shut so please refrain from calling me as of right now and bare with me on replies because my phone hasn’t stopped blowing up. Everyone’s love & kind words have not gone unnoticed whatsoever and it means so much to me that all of you have blessed me and uplifted me in so many ways. I am overwhelmed in the best way by all the support. I was really nervous as this all started blowing up because people are cruel and this is a very sensitive time for me. But I never imagined so many people would stand behind me in a situation like this and that has outweighed all the negativity by far. I am beyond grateful for you all. I am in a tremendous amount of pain but i am ready for this road to recovery so I can get back to my life. I will continue to update everyone over the course of my recovery but thank you once again for EVERYTHING ??

Kevin Hart underwent surgery to stabilize three fractures in his back following a serious car crash near his home in Calabasas, Calif. on Sunday.

A surgeon fused three fractures in his spine - two in the upper back and one lower back fracture.

The 40-year-old comedian is said to be heavily medicated and in excruciating pain.

A spinal fracture in three places may mean the patient will have good range of motion in his hands and arms but he will have trouble walking - if not paralyzed from the waist down.

But his doctors say he is expected to make a full recovery, as he didn't suffer a spinal cord injury.

Still, the father-of-three will need physical therapy to help him walk after back surgery.

Hart and two friends were injured when his vintage 1970 Plymouth Barracuda veered off the road, flipped and landed on its roof in a ditch near Mulholland Drive just after midnight on Sunday.

Hart was able to escape the wreckage, but his wife's personal trainer and her husband - who was driving - were trapped inside. First responders used the jaws of life to cut them out of the mangled vehicle.

A passerby spotted the overturned vehicle, observed two people trapped inside, and called 911. "The roof is crushed and the car is pretty totaled," he said.

The witness told police a black SUV arrived at the scene and a man removed Hart through the shattered driver's side window.

Oddly, Hart and his security left the scene of the crash without calling 911 to help his friends.

Hart was at home when an unknown female called 911 approximately 2 hours after the crash.

The woman made the call from inside Hart's home around 2 a.m.

In an unemotional tone she told a dispatcher Hart was "not coherent at all" and he "can't move."

That description was in contrast to information given to the news media by Hart's camp who claimed he was fine, talking and walking around after the crash.

Rumors swirled around the industry that Hart was in much worse condition than his camp was letting on.

Hart's wife Eniko was spotted outside the hospital the next day. She told Splash News that he was awake and talking and he was "going to be just fine."

Hart who is usually very active on social media has not posted an update in 4 days.

David Ortiz is recovering in a Boston hospital, where he underwent extensive surgery after being shot by a hired gunman in his native Dominican Republic on Sunday.
