Jennifer Lopez shared a clip called “It’s My Party Tour Diary: Volume One” on her YouTube channel, and in it, she tears up after one concert didn’t go exactly as planned.
“It was a tough show for me,” she’s heard telling A-Rod as she stepped backstage.
The accident seems to stem from Lopez missing a few cues on stage, flubbing up the choreography and hitting her forehead with the mic, drawing blood.
“I was bleeding, [it was] coming down my face,” Lopez can be seen telling boyfriend Alex Rodriguez in a video posted to her YouTube page titled “It’s My Party Tour Diary: Volume One.”
“I hit myself with the microphone. Went like this; boom! I just looked to the side at the wrong time,” Lopez recounts to Rodriguez in the clip. “Pete came, like a boxer, and he just crushed it.”
Lopez fought back tears while telling her fiancee the story and explained how her team managed to stop any swelling with ice — just like any good cornerman would do for a boxer.
“And I was like, ‘It hurts!’ And he was like, ‘I gotta do it or else it’s gonna blow up.’ And he just went down, and he goes, ‘You might need stitches.’ And I was like, ‘No, no, no stitches,” Lopez tearfully recounted. She also added that her face was dripping with blood before they managed to take care of the wound.
“It was the best show I’ve seen so far. You guys killed it! And you showed why you’re a champion baby. You were down and you still came back up and had the best show,” Rodriguez told Lopez. “You don’t see how great you are. You really have no idea. Baby, nobody’s looking at steps. People are looking at how beautiful you look and how great you sound.”
