Rapper Drake fell onstage while performing on the America’s Most Wanted Tour. Read more and see photos and video here.


Drake, who has been rumored to be the on and off boyfriend of Rhianna, took a bad fall while performing this weekend. He was reportedly not cleared to perform by doctors, but hit the stage anyway.

He was already working with an injured knee, having torn his ACL a few weeks prior to the performance. As you can see in the video below, his knee buckled, and he fell pretty hard. Drake had to be helped off of the stage during his show at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, New Jersey.

Following his fall while performing with ‘Lil Wayne, he tweeted that he will be in surgery this week to correct the problem. Wayne, known for his wit, stopped in the middle of the song and cracked a joke about insurance while they helped him off.

Drake tweeted later about the incident, saying: “Just to show that this ACL sh– ain’t a joke.”

Well, why did he take the stage knowing there was a risk? His DJ weighed in on that by tweeting the following:

“When you love what you do, you take risks for the people that love what you do. He took the risk for the fans.”

The rapper seems to have learned his lesson. He told MTV that he has been notified that if he tears his ACL again, he may not walk again. You have to give it up for a man who wants to give fans their money’s worth, no matter the personal cost!
