(Today) – Over the weekend, Elton John, 76, was treated and then later released from the hospital after falling at his villa in Nice, France.
“Following a slip yesterday at his home in the south of France, Elton visited the local hospital as a precautionary measure,” a statement from John’s representative shared with TODAY.com read. “Following checkups, he was immediately discharged this morning and (he is) now back at home and in good health.”
Fans previously worried that John faced worsening health after tabloids reported he was using a wheelchair in 2022. He took to Instagram to share more details about his wellbeing at the time.
“The true story is that I’m in top health, loving my shows and playing and singing at my very best. I give 100% every night and never want to disappoint, especially after everyone has waited so long to get back to seeing shows. Your response to every show has been phenomenal and I’m loving every minute of it,” he wrote.
John’s hip surgery wasn’t the only time his health delayed his farewell tour. After contracting COVID-19 in January 2022, John postponed two concerts. The “Benny and the Jets” star, who was vaccinated and received a booster, experienced “mild symptoms,” the Associated Press reported at the time.
