VH1 Exclusive: Gavin DeGraw Speaks Out For First Time After Leaving Hospital


Gavin DeGraw is currently recovering at home after being discharged from the hospital a little over a week ago, following a night which saw him get assaulted by a group of men AND subsequently hit by a taxi cab. He’s sent out a handful of tweets over the last week and some change, but we just got this exclusive update on his condition from our August Posted artist and wanted to pass it along to you guys as quickly as possible:

“Instead of checking in from the tour, I’m writing as I recover at home. I’m feeling much better, but it will take a little bit more time to be back to 100%! I’m overwhelmed with the outpouring of support from my fans, friends, and family. I can’t wait to get back out on tour and look forward to seeing you on the road sometime soon. I’ll keep you POSTED.”

Again, we’d like to extend our best wishes to Gavin as he recuperates from this senseless assault. We look forward to seeing him get back on the road as soon as he’s back to 100%. Get well soon, buddy!

    I still can’t believe this happened. Gavin is such a nice guy & what’s even worse is them not having the jerks in custody. And also the reason the police think it happened…as in NO REASON. Get better soon Gavin!

  2. Anna says:

    Get well soon and I pray they find who did this.

    Gavin, I’m not concerned so much with who attacked you, since Karma’s a real “b” & eventually they WILL get theirs. But I’m glad to know you’re recuperating so very well. Probably will not get the opportunity to see you perform, so I’ll be content to hear your music & read your posts online. I know you’ll walk away from this traumatic experience a better person & may even end up using it as a musical catalyst sometime down the road (if you’re not already working on that as we e-speak). Love, prayers & peace being sent to you!! God Bless!!
