The Veronicas‘ Jessica Origliasso has been injured in an accident while on the way to filming the group’s latest music video. 


Jessica and twin sister Lisa, both 34, shared details of the shocking incident to her Instagram Stories on Wednesday.

The singers said Jessica had been “smacked in the head by the back of a taxi” shortly before their 10-hour shoot began, earlier this month.

“What’s happened here?” said Lisa as the video zoomed in on sister Jessica’s face.

“I got hit in the head, you know, I got hit in the head by just a cab… a cab boot,” Jess said.

The singer showed off a large cut on the bride of her nose, between her eyes.

“It’s very Australian honestly, just to be like, smacked in the head by the back of a taxi,” said Jess, almost laughing.

Jess’s sister Lisa seemed a little more worried about the injury, and shared further details on her account. 

Upon arriving at the video shoot location in Adelaide, Jessica was grabbing her suitcase out the back of the cab, and the trunk/ boot smashed down between her eyes and SPLIT IT OPEN TO THE BONE,” she told her Instagram followers.

Despite the severity of the injury, Jess was reluctant to go to hospital. 

“Acting tough in front of Tom [rapper Allday], she decided not to go to hospital to get stitches, but cover it with makeup and proceeded to shoot for the next 10 hours before getting surgical glue the next day,” Lisa shared. 

The girls shared details of the incident just hours before they revealed The Veronicas new music video with the Aussie rapper.
