She then elaborated on the injuries, writing: “My right arm/hand is all stitched up and I’m trying to keep still to heal my broken ribs,ohh the pain,but I’m in super safe hands with the care of everyone here at the hospital!!!!!”
Her close friend Gary Madatyan confirms to PEOPLE that Brown, 43, was sleeping in the upstairs room of a friend’s house on Saturday night when she attempted to navigate a narrow staircase and ultimately slipped.
“She was upstairs and the room was dark,” he said. “Everyone knows one of her eyes does not see 100 percent.”
Her Spice Sisters (not including LA-based Victoria “Posh” Beckham) paid a visit to her bedside and posed for boomerangs.
No doubt a delightful preview to their upcoming 2019 reunion tour.
