Photos of James Reid on crutches, with his right leg in a knee brace, are circulating online and are worrying JaDine fans concerned about his health.
JaDine fans are asking “What happened to James? Why is he limping around and on crutches?”
Based on some accounts of his supporters, James hurt his knee on the stairs of the tour bus. A throng of fans must have crowded around him and accidentally pushed him towards the stairs.
The minor accident led to the swelling of James’ right knee, and he had no choice but to rest, as per his doctors’ order.
The unfortunate incident happened during the Las Vegas leg of “JaDine High on Love” US tour.
Due to the fragile condition of his knee and the pain he felt on the affected area, James was unable to attend one of the fan meetings. His absence reportedly caused some fans to get mad.
Chad Kinis, one of the Viva artists who is part of the entourage of JaDine’s US Tour, was quick to defend James and asked fans to understand his condition.
He posted a photo of James’ legs, the right one in a knee brace with straps, and captioned it with the following statement:
James is not making excuse for not making it to see the fans that are waiting for them. Please understand. Kahit gaano pa kapagod ang JaDine. Pinipilit nila na mapagbigyan ang lahat. Para sa ngsasabi na nag eexcuse si James ayan po ang evidence na hindi. Nasaktan po yung tao. salamat po. Naiintidihan po namin na gustong gusto nyo po sila makita at sila din naman po. Pero wag naman po sana sa extent na masaktan sila. Ayaw din po namin na nagkakasakitan kayo. Wala pong may gusto ng nangyari. So please po next time let’s just be more careful and not hurt someone. Pray for James fast Recovery.”
