Jessie J claims Britain's publicly-funded National Health Service (NHS) misdiagnosed her foot injury back in June, which lead to canceling all of her summer tour dates. JJ was initially told she had sprained her ankle after falling off the stage during a rehearsal at London's Wembley Stadium. She performed the following day with a bandaged leg, only to find out her left foot was actually broken in four places.
Now the singer, who has undergone a bone transplant to treat the injury, is venting her anger over the misdiagnosis, telling London's Evening Standard, "Some d--- head at the NHS hospital told me I had sprained my ankle. The bones in my foot are refusing to make friends with each other and get better."
The singer was forced to pull out of a string of gigs, including dates as the opening act on Katy Perry's North American tour, but is still looking on the bright side. "It's OK, because everything happens for a reason and if I hadn't broken my foot, I wouldn't have written [new song] 'Domino.'"
A girl who survived a stroke at age 18 can surely overcome this rough patch. Jessie wowed when she performed in a bedazzled leg cast at the MTV VMAs as the lead singer of the awards show's house band.
