Bow Wow hasn’t done a show since December 6, when his people announced that he was taken to a hospital for “stress and exhaustion” but would return to his tour soon. Then a press release later said that Bow Wow was actually taken to the hospital because his appendix was infected. Well, according to Bow Wow, none of those things are true. The rapper said he actually cut his hand and needed to get stitched up.
"I got stitches in my finger," Bow Wow told MTV News. "It ain’t nothing, man. Stress? Yeah, of course, that’s normal. But right now, no, I’m not [exhausted]. I just went to the hospital for medical issues. I fainted, fell out. Hopefully everything will get right. I’m taking my medication, everything is gonna be cool. We’ll see if I have to have surgery as of right now, [but] I’m feeling fine. I’ll probably wind up getting further tested after the tour wraps up. I don’t want to get surgery right now if that’s not [necessary]. The official medical reason is I lost a lot of blood in my hand. I hit something and cut my hand. It would not stop bleeding. I lost a lot of blood, went onstage, put out a lot of energy, came off, got light-headed. I fainted, went to the hospital, threw up and then they told me my white blood cells were higher than what they’re supposed to be. They were looking at my appendix. I’ve always had stomach issues. I’ve always had stomach problems. But like I said, we’re gonna see if it’s that serious that I have to take that surgery. If that’s what I gotta do, that’s what I gotta do. The appendix is a life- threatening thing."
Right now Bow Wow and Omarion are on the road in select cities promoting their collaboration album, “Face Off”. They do plan on having a specific “Face Off” Tour this summer that will go nationwide.
