Kelly Clarkson Had Surgery For Appendix Just Hours After Hosting Billboard Music Awards
Kelly Clarkson, 37, hosted the Billboard Music Awards last Wednesday night only to fly home to Los Angeles immediately after for surgery on her appendix.
The star tweeted, “I may or may not have broken down in tears after the show from pain.”
Not gonna lie…. I may or may not have broken down in tears after the show from pain 😬 BUT thanks 2 all the amazing people @ Cedars-Sinai I flew home directly after the event, nailed the surgery early this morning, & feeling awesome now!

The star was hosting the show in Las Vegas and despite the pain managed to perform a medley of songs before belting out her newest song “Broken & Beautiful.” However, immediately following the show she flew home to have surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
A rep for the singer confirmed the surgery adding that “she’s doing great.”
Though the Billboard Awards were entertaining, after the show is what really garnered attention. In addition to Clarkson’s surgery, Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner wed in a Vegas style ceremony with an Elvis Presley impersonator to officiate the ceremony.
