The singer tweeted that he went under the knife to "correct malformation of foot due to hitting a truck tire in road a year ago ."
"Hit foot on shredded truck tire causing a hairline fracture a year a 1/2 ago and it was calcifying causing malform pain," he added. Now we weren't exactly sure what it could possibly mean to shred your foot on a tire in the road. Perhaps he was dancing with himself?
Idol clarified his cause of injury and also chronicled his use of pain meds, writing, "Motorcycling at around 60 mph when i hit the tire in the road. meanwhile tonight I'm crushing one of these percocet pills and shooting it!"
He also added, "Nodded out woke up in a pile of my own vomit! This is like the old days!" This doesn't exactly sound promising for a former addict, but it seems like Billy's getting by: "The pain in my foot has now resided so no more pain pills boo hoo but bollocks I've been there & (over) did that!"
