Hospitalized Gabby Douglas Forced to Miss VMA Appearance with Final Five

Gabby Douglas was noticeably absent as her Final Five teammates took the stage at last night’s VMAs to present Beyonce with the Best Female Video award.

“The fifth member of our team, Gabby Douglas, is having medical issues and unfortunately couldn’t make it tonight,” Simone Biles said. “Feel better Gabby!”

As many wondered exactly what had caused Douglas’s hospitalization, the 20-year-old gymnast’s publicist explained to the Associated Press that it was a mouth infection that stemmed from a previous injury,

“She continues to have deep swelling and adverse reactions to medications,” Lesley Burbridge said in a statement.

Taking to Twitter, Douglas tweeted a photo from her bed and expressed her regret that she couldn’t be with her teammates at the MTV awards show.

“Out of hospital&resting comfortably!” she wrote. “#FinalFive sad I can’t be with u 2 present tonite.”

Get well soon, Gabby!
