We're glad to hear that Mariah Carey is recovering well from her recent injury. As we reported earlier this week, the 43-year-old diva dislocated her shoulder over the weekend while filming a music video and was rushed to a New York City hospital. Her rep said she "will be fine" and Carey herself showed off her "very fashionable sling" on Twitter yesterday - further confirmation that she's indeed on her way back to tip-top shape (yayy!).
Carey isn't the only celeb who has been injured (duh). Below are other Latina celebs who have also suffered from injuries (and one that's more of a joke than an actual injury):
1. Injured: Mariah Carey
After getting injured this past weekend during the filming of her latest music video, the diva tweeted a black-and-white photo of herself on Twitter with the following message: “Dislocated my shoulder on the remix video with Jeezy, sporting a very fashionable sling for the next couple of weeks!”
2. Injured: Snooki
The pint-sized former Jersey Shore star wore this neck brace in Florence, Italy - though she didn't need one at all. Snooki wore it as a joke after getting into a fender bender during the filming of the show.
3. Injured: Salma Hayek
The stunning Mexican actress didn't let a small ankle injury prevent her from going out. Peep the nude-colored ankle brace.
4. Injured: Demi Lovato
The 20-year-old singer/actress had to use crutches earlier this year after falling in her home. She later shared a photo of her right foot in a cast with her adoring Twitter followers, complete with the caption: "This sucks :(."
5. Injured: Rosie Perez
The Puerto Rican actress was wheelchair-bound and had to wear a neck brace back in 2010 after suffering from injuries during the filming of an episode on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. According to the New York Daily News, Perez claimed she suffered serious neck and back injuries and nerve damage in 2009 after she was violently shaken by an extra during a stunt for an episode on the series. She later settled the personal injury lawsuit with producers of the show.
