Jessie J: Friends with Fractures
Last summer, British pop tart Jessie J broke her foot after falling from the stage during rehearsals and had to undergo major surgery. She spent the latter part of the year hobbling around in a cast. The leg healed, and the whole incident quickly became a thing of the past... until this week.
According to The Sun, a teenage superfan of the British ‘Voice’ judge intentionally broke her own foot and sent a photo of her injured limb to Jessie, along with a note reading, “I will do anything to be just like you.”
While a spokesperson for the singer refused to comment, The Sun quoted a source as saying, “She's horrified this happened. Jessie's a really, really sensitive and kind girl who loves keeping in touch with her fans. But this incident was just too much for her and she ended up getting really frightened and upset. She was sad that a fan hurt herself to look like her—but she was also scared for her own safety.”-Xfinity Entertainment Programmers
