Stars shaken after Cadillac smash at 3.30am
The pair were on their way back from an all-night recording session when Will’s £100,000 Cadillac smashed into a parked car at 3.30am.
Will was left with a heavily bleeding nose after the airbag inflated on his side of the car, whilst Cheryl, who’s believed to have banged her head on the dashboard, was also snapped with blood streaming down her face.
‘Car accidents are not dope…I’m glad I’m o.k #wiplash‘ Tweeted Will, 37, to reassure his followers that he was okay.
Cheryl, 29, re-Tweeted Will’s message and added: ‘Don’t worry me and @iamwill are fine, promise x’
Will’s friends in the industry also Tweeted their relief that the Black Eyed Peas singer and Cheryl were only shaken and not seriously injured.
‘just spoke to @iamwill everything is OK. he and @cherylcole are both fine,’ said Will’s manager Polo Molina.
‘it was a minor fender bender after a long day/night in the studi‘
‘they are both OK. a little bit shaken BUT thankfull that noone got hurt.‘
Cheryl was treated at the scene whilst Will was taken to nearby Cedars-Sinai hospital for a full check-up, where he was later seen leaving in a neck brace.
A passer-by who witnessed the accident told The Sun: ‘Both seemed shaken but were checking each other over.
‘They both had nose bleeds and at least one of the airbags had deployed. Police soon arrived and everyone was told to move back.
‘It was only when Will.i.am stepped out I realised who he was and that the passenger was Cheryl. Will.i.am’s main concern was Cheryl.’
