August Alsina head injury

Loyal reader R. Williams sent in this social media photo of up-and-coming R&B singer August Alsina in intensive care in a NY area hospital.

According to an insider, the 22-year-old New Orleans native suffered a closed head injury when he collapsed and fell off the stage during a concert at Irving Plaza in NYC on Monday.

The photo shows Alsina in a hospital bed with his head swathed in bandages. He is wearing a neck brace and oxygen mask. In the caption, someone explains that Alsina woke up out of a 3-day coma. In his condition, it’s doubtful he tweeted the photo himself.

Another insider close to Alsina’s camp said the singer smoked “too much” of a potent form of medical marijuana called “Knockout Kush” on the day of the concert.

Gossip tabloid TMZ reported that Alsina experienced seizures and was being treated for the mythical celebrity diagnosis “exhaustion and dehydration.”
