Post Malone — real name Austin Richard Post — has provided his fans with an update on his condition after falling and injuring himself during a concert in Missouri.
The unfortunate incident occurred during the rapper’s “Circles” performance, resulting in a few injuries that many assumed to be broken ribs. However, he has come out to assure fans that all is well via a video he dropped on Twitter. The clip has invoked multiple reactions and feelings from his millions of fans.
Post Malone Is Good After Nerve-Wracking Fall On Saturday Night
In the video he posted on Sunday evening, Malone began by appreciating fans for their patience and for “putting up with my dumb a**.” He then recounted:
“Whenever we do the acoustic part of the show, the guitars and the guitar stands, they go down, and there’s this big a*se hole, so I go around there, I turn the corner and bust my a**. It got me pretty good.”
After pointing out that he just got back from the hospital, where they gave him some pain medications, the 27-year-old added, “I just want to apologize to everyone in St. Louis, and I want to say thank you guys so much for coming to the show, and I want to say that next time we come this way, we’re going to do a two-hour show for you so we can make up for the couple of missed songs we missed.”
He finished his video by thanking his fans for their support, love, and “for hanging around even though I got my a** kicked by myself. I love you guys so much. Have a great night. Thank you, St Louis.” Along with its almost 700k views, the footage has earned Malone over 56k likes and 1k+ replies. Most of the many responses were from people who wished the “I Like You” rapper a “speedy recovery.”

Malone’s manager, Dre London — real name Andre Jackson — chipped in on his client’s ongoing health challenge via an Instagram post where he wrote, “Thank you everyone for all your well wishes! @postmalone didn’t break 3 ribs lastnite thank god. We did X-rays @ hospital after the show & they declared he had bruised his ribs!”
He finished the lengthy caption by asking Malone’s fans to keep him [Malone] in their thoughts as “we know he will wake up in pain.”
In case you missed it, The Blast reported that the “Congratulations” artist was performing “Circles” at his show Saturday night at the Enterprise Center when he slipped on the platform.
As it turned out, the platform — which was stretched from the center of the stage — suddenly gave way under him. Thus, one of his legs fell straight through the stage, and the rapper crashed to the floor, hitting his torso and head against the platform in the process.
Malone was then seen smacking the ground before rolling over and screaming in pain. He was also close to tears as he held his side, near his ribs. He eventually got up, asking fans to give him time to collect himself as he exited the stage. To the shock of those at the venue, the “Rockstar” artist returned to the stage and finished his performance.
The Multiple Award Winner Has His Fiancée To Thank For This Lifestyle Change
In June, The Blast noted that Malone opened up about his alcohol problem and his unidentified fiancée’s role in helping him. The update came when the father-of-one appeared on an episode of “The Howard Stern Show” to promote his newest album, “Twelve Carat Toothache.”
While there, the artist revealed that even though he was not entirely sober at the moment, he was doing much better. In his words, “I am responsible now. It was a really rough point, and I couldn’t get up off the floor for weeks.”
He contributed by confessing the drinks that affected him so badly, “It was screwdrivers, it was vodka, and it was bodying fifths and trying to hang in there and talking to people who weren’t f*king there.”
Luckily, he met a “really beautiful person” that made him feel like “a human being again” and saved his life. Malone added that their relationship was “the guidance out of the dark into the light.” With that analogy, it is little wonder he put a ring on it and welcomed a child with the woman, who fans cannot wait to “officially meet.”
