Af­ter ‘ Life-chang­ing’ Ac­ci­dent…

In Touch (USA) - - True Crime -

Car­rie Un­der­wood left many con­cerned fans con­fused on April 4 when she shared on In­sta­gram a pic (above) of her at work in the stu­dio. “Where’s the scar?” asked one who was ex­pect­ing to see a dra­matic mark on the left side of the singer’s face. Car­rie suf­fered a fall in Novem­ber at her Nashville home that left her with a bro­ken wrist and 40 to 50 stitches in her face. On New Year’s Eve, the “Undo It” singer, 35, took to her fan club web­site to ex­press her fears about her ap­pear­ance and warn ev­ery­one that when she re­turned to the pub­lic eye, she “might look a bit dif­fer­ent” thanks to the “grue­some” ac­ci­dent. She also lamented that a “freak ran­dom ac­ci­dent can change your life.” Some fans weren’t con­fused; they were an­gry. “Van­ity at its finest,” scoffed one, while an­other said, “As a nurse, I can say no one has 50 stitches in their face and four months later, no scars.” A few even the­o­rized that Car­rie had elec­tive plastic surgery and lied about it be­cause she didn’t like the re­sults and had to wait un­til it could be fixed. Adding to the mys­tery: In De­cem­ber, a month af­ter the ac­ci­dent, Car­rie posed for a photo with Be­low Deck’s Adri­enne Gang (above) — and showed no sign of fa­cial trauma. What­ever the truth is, Car­rie’s fac­ing un­prece­dented back­lash. “Come on, she’s milk­ing it,” said one unim­pressed fan. “Ei­ther show what hap­pened to you to help oth­ers go­ing through some­thing sim­i­lar or keep it pri­vate. I hate to say it, but this game is an­noy­ing.”

On April 4, Car­rie showed the left side of her face in this In­sta­gram pic — and the in­ter­net went wild over the lack of an ob­vi­ous scar.
