Johnny Hallyday, hospitalized for a postoperative infection

December 9, 2009


Singer and actor Johnny Hallyday, 66 years old, was hospitalized Monday in Los Angeles because of an infection that followed an intervention for a herniated disc.

“His state of health is stable and it’s expected to leave hospital in few days,” said the press service of the artist.

Johnny Hallyday has already been operated twice this year for colon cancer.

The singer flew to Los Angeles on December 1, against his doctor’s will, only four days after surgery, according to Hallyday’s entourage. Complaining of pain during the journey, he left the airport in Los Angeles in a wheelchair. As the pain continued to increase, Johnny Hallyday was hospitalized Monday at Cedars Sinai hospital in Beverly Hills. Doctors have diagnosed a postoperative infection.
