Madonna, 61, emerges from hospital using a crutch amid recovery from knee injury

Madonna, 61, emerges from hospital using a crutch amid recovery from knee injury… after admitting she was left feeling like a ‘broken doll held together with tape and glue’

Madonna was seen leaving hospital while being supported by a crutch on Friday as she continues to recover from her recent knee injury.  

The Like A Virgin hitmaker, 61, went for her usual edgy style in all-black with a hat and glasses as she stepped out with the assistance. 

The singer has been dealing with her injury since March when she fell on stage and since has relied on using a cane and knee supports.

Madonna made her way out of the hospital and straight into a waiting car meaning pressure was kept off her injury.

The star appeared in strong spirits as she used the crutch under one arm and was helped into the car by the driver.

In March, Madonna wrote on Instagram about hurting her knees while falling on stage two nights prior ‘when a chair was literally pulled out from underneath me by mistake and I landed on the floor on my tail bone.’

She described herself as ‘a broken doll held together with tape and glue’ as she announced she was taking some much needed bed rest in hopes of finishing her Madame X tour which launched in September 2019.

Earlier this month, Madonna shared that she received stem cell treatment for her injured knee as she continues her tough recovery. 

The appearance comes after her announcement in April that she was ‘going to go for a long drive’ to ‘breathe in the COVID-19 air’ after testing positive for antibodies.

Shortly thereafter she was seen breaking self-isolation to attend a birthday party for photographer Stephen Klein, whom she hugged and gave a ‘COVID-19’ cake.

Then in early May she fired up her Instagram page that ‘I am not currently sick’ but claimed she did have coronavirus on tour.

She wrote: ‘When you test positive for anti-bodies it means you HAD the virus which I. clearly did as I was sick at the end of my tour in Paris over 7 weeks ago along with many other artists in my show but at the time We all thought we had a very bad flu.’

She had opened her message by writing: ‘Im Grateful that I can be a part of supporting Research to Find the cure for Covid -19!!’
