The Game

Hospitalized After Bloody Guitar Smash

1/15/2011 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Game was rushed to the hospital Thursday night after a guitar-smashing stunt went horribly wrong -- leaving the rapper with a giant bloody gash in his finger -- and TMZ has obtained pics of the accident!

It all happened in Downtown L.A. during a music video shoot with Snoop Dogg, DJ Skee, Ron Artest, and Matt Barnes -- Game was supposed to smash a guitar during the song, but we're told the rapper smashed it a little too hard ... because a jagged guitar piece sliced his finger open like a baked potato.

Game -- real name Jayceon Taylor -- booked it to the hospital as soon as he got the bleeding under control ... and his doctor must have had an awesome sense of humor ... because we're told he left the rapper in stitches.

Thank you. We'll be here all week.

Look at the injury. It's his own fault! It looks like the compression from closing his own hand when grabbing the guitar neck, across the bridge and strings, combined with the force he used to break the guitar, so he got torn up by his own stupidity. Doofus...

What a *****. My husband has had worse wounds from doing construction than that and he just wrapped it up and put a gauze on it. These celebrities are a bunch of wimps. Isn't he supposed to have been shot up and all that and now look at how soft he is, he needs stitches for a little cut. That's not "hard". lol

The guy sliced his finger up and needed stitches. You ever heard of someone giving themselves stitches? Of course he had to go to the hospital to get them dumb ass.

Plus hes worth a lot of money to a lot of different people. They gona make sure he gets looked at by a doctor.

@just because: Dr. Dre WAS born in Compton, you dumb ****.

Now when he gets together with other rappers and they start showing off all the bullet holes in their bodies, he can show them the cut on his finger, you feel me?

"Hospitalized" does not equal an emergency room trip. "Hospitalized" means they kept you overnight, at least. That injury needed emergency stitches. I doubt they kept him.

That's what you get for wasting a great guitar. Next time give it to some poor kid who could be the next Hendrix. Garth Brooks wasted enough guitars already.Pete Townshend you ain't!
