Madonna Hospitalized After Horse Accident

Another Horse Accident for Madonna Ends in a Hospital Trip

On Saturday in the Hamptons, Madonna fell off a horse that had been "spooked" by the paparazzi according to her manager Guy Oseary. The singer was taken from photographer Steven Klein's home where the incident took place to the hospital and released the same day with minor injuries. Her rep Liz Rosenberg confirmed, "The accident occurred when the horse Madonna was riding was startled by paparazzi who jumped out of the bushes to photograph the singer, who was visiting friends on Eastern Long Island over the weekend. Madonna will be having further tests and will continue to remain under observation by doctors." This isn't the first time Madonna has been injured from riding horses but luckily this time it seems a lot less severe. We wish her a speedy recovery.

Clearly Madonna is a terrible horse rider, since this is the second time she's fallen off and been injured seriously enough to be hospitalized. Secondly, what an evil woman, to blame a paparazzo, when he wasn't even there.

her face scared the horse...I've been riding since I was 8 (28 now) and have never fallen off a horse (thank God)...she needs to stick to the petting zoo

Madonna and her reps are LIARS. "But photographer Thomas Hinton tells Newsday in online editions Sunday the only photographer present when the "Material Girl" singer fell was Steven Klein, her host in the Hamptons, a playground for the rich and famous on the eastern end of Long Island. Hinton says he received a tip Madonna was in the Hamptons and took photos of her from a public road before and after the accident. He says he wasn't there when she fell"
i think madonna is like a cat,, 9 lives, ha ha....

this just goes to show how aggressive the papps are sometimes. it's really lucky that nothing worse happened to her. falling off a horse is really serious stuff

The paparazzi says this is BS and he was nowhere near when this happened. TMZ updated that a couple of hours ago.

Madonna looks so soft and feminine now. Much nicer than the look she had a couple of years ago.

I have family in the Hamptons and the southampton hospital where she was is the worst! I could just imagine her bitchin people around. We did too when we were there but we weren't as big of a deal as she is. I hope they took care of her and treated her better then they treat us regular folk!

Why would you jump out of the bushes and spook an animal just to get a picture? Well, hope she recovers soon.

That's terrible, damn those paparazzis :irk:! This is why I never ride horses. I hope Madonna recovers soon.

Just to the poster above, I worked at a hospital a couple of years ago, specifically in the medical imaging department (xrays, CT, MRI etc) and we saw quite a few nasty injuries from horse-riding. If some knob jumped out of a bush, waving a camera around and caused that accident, then that's pretty shitty. I also agree with the comments above about please not posting any of the photos from the accident. There needs to be some stricter laws on stalker-type/paparazzi photographers.

I was never a fan of paparazzi's photos, but this is the worst. This is partially our own fault, since we're the ones demanding photos of Madonna round the clock to criticize later. I hope it's nothing serious and she can recover.

Oh whatever...not a big deal. I ride horses competitively and have fallen off more than a couple times. It's rare that you actually get hurt and NEED to go to the hospital. Definitely overblown

They need to make sure she's okay because with any fall there could be internal bleeding, which is the cause of most accidents like that of Natasha Richardson.
I agree about the last part of snowbunnies comment. I hope Madonna recovers soon.

Aw, Madonna doesn't have good luck with the horses. I hope they are just being super paranoid because she is a performer (and rich enough to afford loads of healthcare), and that is why they took her to the hospital, not that she is seriously injured. If her rep was correct that it was paparazzi who startled the horse, that is really pathetic! Please don't post any photos they may have taken!
