Enrique Iglesias’ spokesperson has announced that the singer’s hand injuries are worse than expected.

Enrique Iglesias, 40, sliced his fingers open when he tried to grab a drone camera, which was taking pictures of the audience, at a concert on May 30.

Following reconstructive surgery on June 1, it was announced the singer would need several weeks to recover.

A statement on Enrique Iglesias’ website said: “The damage ended up being a bit worse than initially assessed.

“He suffered a fracture that needed to be corrected in addition to the reconstructive surgery.

“He will be recovering during the next few weeks, but a full recovery is anticipated.”Enrique Iglesias drone injury 2015

Enrique Iglesias was performing in Tijuana, Mexico when he reached for the drone, apparently in an attempt to give fans a point-of-view shot from the stage.

The singer was “semi-treated” at the side of the stage to stop the bleeding, and was advised to end the show.

However, Enrique Iglesias performed for another 30 minutes before seeking further treatment.


A representative for the singer said on Instagram: “He was rushed to the airport where an ambulance met him.

“He was then put on a plane to LA… to see a specialist.”

Enrique Iglesias, one of the highest-selling Latin musicians of all time, shifting more than 137 million albums worldwide, is expected to resume his tour on July 3 in Mexico City.
