‘Last Friday, I had the pleasure of crashing my electric bike, flying over the handlebars and absolutely demolishing my collarbone as well as sustaining a radial head fracture to my right elbow,’ Finneas began. 

‘The severity of the displacement of my collarbone meant I required surgery which I am now on the other side of and I’m feeling great!’ the singer-songwriter added.

‘I want to give an enormous thank you to Dr. Brian Lee who performed the surgery, Dr. Neal Elattrache and everyone at Kerlan Jobe for their incredible treatment I feel so privileged to have received,’ he continued.

He also thanked physical trainer Jonathan Erb, ‘for guiding me through the treatment process as well as the ongoing process of physical rehab I now face.’

‘I also want to thank my family for their support and love, and most of all Claudia for dropping everything to take care of me the second this happened,’ he said of his longtime girlfriend, YouTuber Claudia Sulewski, who he’s been dating since 2018. 

He added his girlfriend, ‘has been an Angel through all of this,’ while giving fans an update on his touring schedule.

‘I’m told with hard work, I’ll be able to play Billie’s forum shows come December which I am so grateful for,’ he said, just days after his sister added a third show at the Kia Forum in Inglewood, California on December 13.

‘As foolish as I felt after the fall, my prevailing emotion is gratitude. You see, I was not wearing a helmet. Lesson forever learned,’ he added. 

‘I feel so lucky to still be here. Take care of yourselves, thank your bodies for all that they do for you. See you all again soon,’ Finneas concluded.
