Deryck Whibley Hospitalized After Bar Attack
Sum 41 singer Deryck Whibley was hospitalized after being attacked in a Japanese bar at approximately midnight on Friday, according to the band’s Twitter site:
“Deryck Whibley was attacked in a bar last night by 3 unknown people. He is in the hospital now. Japanese police are looking into the matter.”
Not long after, the group updated to note that the 30-year-old rocker was still in the hospital:
“It is unfortunate to say, but Deryck Whibley is still in the hospital. He was attacked late last night in Japan. We are waiting for results and we are hoping for the best. Thanks for your support.”
Whibley was forced to cancel several dates on the Warped Tour due to a case of bronchitis earlier this week. The group was scheduled to perform two dates at Summersonic in Osaka on Saturday and Sunday. It is not currently known whether those shows will be canceled.
