All the stars were out for the 2016 Video Music Awards—including the U.S. Women’s Olympic gymnastics team. But only four of the gold-medal winners were in attendance.
Gabby Douglas was noticeably absent from the big show, for serious health reasons. Doughlas announced that she wouldn’t be attending the VMAs this year with a photos she posted to Instagram of herself wrapped up in a blanket on a bed in what appeared to be a hotel room in New York City.
She wrote, “Out of the hospital & resting comfortably! #FinalFive so sad I can’t be with u all to present tonite@MTV thank u xoxo #VMAs #myview.”
But Gabby’s publicist revealed that she was returned to hospital again on Sunday night for a serious infection, saying, “Gabby is back in the hospital tonight being treated for a seriously infected past mouth injury. She continues to have deep swelling and adverse reactions to medications.”
Gabby Douglas’ absence came just on the heels of her cyber-bullying drama, to which her mom addressed during the Rio games.
We wish Gabby a speedy recovery.
