Q    

Flash mob wilding on him? They dont care who it is, as long as they are White...been to Chicago lately? They flash rob mod right on the Magnificant Mile and best areas of downtown..Rahm Emanuel does NOT have "the problem" under control--just a faux attempt at blaming it all on white people wearing headphones and dressing nicely. The Country needs jobs--particularly for the poor minorities who now head to the best parts of city's to do their mob robbing and beatings...easy pickings. Folk there got money, where the mobbers live they dont. Do the math Rahm. Or in this case, Bloomberg.

Readinmg some of these comments I wonder why so many in this world are so mean spirited. whjether you like DeGraws music or even know who he is. He was beaten by street thugs and hospitilized. Show some compasion ********. maybe if you or one of your loved ones gets attacked you will realinze just how stupid you sound. DeGraw has people who love and care for him. Just think how they must be feeling. And BTW how many of you are on tour?

Pop singer Gavin DeGraw says he was brutally beaten after leaving an East Village restaurant early Monday - and then hit by a cab several blocks later, sources said.

The 34-year-old, who had been out drinking with his friends, said he was accosted by a group of men on First Ave. between Fifth and Sixth Sts. about 4 a.m., the sources said.

The "I Don't Want to Be" singer then stumbled his way up to Third Ave. and E. 19th St., where he wa***** by a cab about 4:30 a.m., sources said. He was not seriously injured in the accident.

DeGraw, who appeared to be intoxicated, was taken by ambulance to Bellevue Hospital, sources said. He was in stable condition Monday night.

He suffered a broken nose and other lacerations to his face, sources said.

Sources said the crooner reported the incident only after cops were called to the hospital. Police are investigating the alleged beatdown.

No arrests had been made as of Monday night.

DeGraw, who grew up in upstate South Fallsburg, is touring the country as an opening act for Maroon 5 and Train.

This is a very talented guy, so sorry to hear he was hurt. Get well soon Gavin. Hope what TMX reported is the extent of his injuries. (no brain damage) Was this attack anywhere near the bar he and his brother own? I think it's called National Underground? Has their bar in Nashville opened yet?

He is an extremely talented musician and it is absolutely terrible what has happened to him. All of you who wrote rude comments should be ashamed of yourselves! What if it happened to any of you?
