Enrique Iglesias had reconstructive hand surgery in Los Angeles after his fingers were sliced up during a recent concert in Tijuana, Mexico.

The singer was playing around with a drone used to take photos of his show, when his right hand made contact with the blades.

The singer was injured when he grabbed a drone camera during a show on Saturday.

Enrique was nearly an hour into his show when he reached for a camera attached to a drone, catching his fingers in the rotating blades.

Despite being badly cut and bleeding all over his clothes, Iglesias continued on with the show.

The 40-year-old had surgery on Monday to repair the damage done to his fingers.

Enrique’s rep confirmed the singer had reconstructive hand surgery, adding that “he will resume his tour July 3 in Mexico City”.

A statement was released on Tuesday, stating, “His recent surgery lasted longer than expected since the damage ended up being a bit worse than initially assessed. He suffered a fracture that needed to be corrected in addition to the reconstructive surgery. He will be recovering during the next few weeks, but a full recovery is anticipated.”

Fans sent their well-wishes to the hunky singer, with many showing respect for the performer continuing the show after the injury.
