Paula Abdul

American Idol's Paula Abdul has undergone surgery on her neck to relieve the pain she has suffered for the past 20 long years. According to reports, Paula checked into Los Angeles California Olympia Medical Center early this month for a five-day stay. The 46-year-old singer’s spine was first damaged during a cheerleading accident when she was 17. She was then involved in a car accident and a minor plane crash that worsened the damage. She once told reporters, "I have four titanium plates in my neck. I’ve had 14 surgeries over the years." A source tells the National Enquirer of her recent surgery, "Paula wasn’t about to begin another season of Idol living in constant pain. Auditions for the show begin in New York at the end of August, and she wanted to make sure she was feeling her best before hitting the road."
Editors Note: Paula baby. A cheerleading accident, a car crash and a plane crash? Whats next? Simon is going to sit on you?

There were reports of the car crash when she got hit by a drunk driver, as well as the cheerleading and plane crash incident way before American Idol. Some people just have more unfortunate experiences than others. She has neck plates in don't get that from minor injuries.

How come the FAA has no record of a plane crash Paula claims to have been involved with?
