Guns N’ Roses: Steven Adler stabbing update

Following headlines that Steven Adler had stabbed himself in his Los Angeles, CA home and was rushed to an area hospital on Thursday, a representative for the former Guns N’ Roses drummer has issued a update on the matter.

The unnamed spokesperson tells TMZ that the stabbing was simply an accident and not a suicide attempt; without providing further details, the representative described it as a "very minor, superficial wound" while adding that Adler is still planning to perform a July 12 show at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas, NV.

The Los Angeles Police Department previously confirmed that local authorities responded to a 911 call shortly after 6:30 PM on June 27.

“Upon arrival, LAPD officers determined that there was no crime and the incident was being treated as a medical emergency only,” said LAPD officer Jeff Lee. “The subject was transported to a local hospital with a non-life-threatening injury.”

Adler was fired from Guns N’ Roses in 1990 for excessive drug use, and has struggled with addiction issues for years.

As for Steven's past substance abuse, his representative tells TMZ that the rocker has been sober for several years.
