GN'R Drummer Steven Adler Stabs Self in Household 'Accident'
Steven Adler Hospitalized After Stabbing Himself ... NOT a Suicide Attempt, Rep Says


Originally published -- 6/27 8:33 PM PT

Former Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler was rushed to the hospital after stabbing himself at his home ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ someone at Adler's L.A. home called 911 shortly after 6:30 PM Thursday night to report someone had stabbed themselves. We're told when cops and paramedics arrived, they discovered it was Adler who had suffered a stab wound to his stomach.

Our sources say Adler was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. We're told no one else is suspected to have been involved in the incident.

Adler has openly struggled with substance abuse for decades. He was kicked out of Guns N' Roses over his drug addiction in 1990 ... but was later inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with the group in 2012.

Adler has appeared on several TV shows about addiction ... he was a member of seasons 2 and 5 of "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" and its spin-off 'Sober House.'

UPDATE
June 28, 10:15 AM PT
-- Adler's rep tells TMZ ... the stabbing was not a suicide attempt, and simply an accident.
The rep would not specify what caused the accident, except to describe it as a "very minor, superficial wound." So much so, we're told Adler still plans to perform a July 12 gig in Las Vegas. The show must go on, as they say. As for Steven's past substance abuse -- his rep assured us he's been sober for several years.

Guns N' Roses Drummer Steven Adler Hospitalized After Possible Suicide Attempt

The Los Angeles Police and Fire Departments both responded to the incident on Thursday and confirmed that a patient was transported to a local hospital


By Robyn Merrett and Joelle Goldstein

Guns N’ Roses‘ drummer Steven Adler has been hospitalized after a possible suicide attempt, PEOPLE confirms.

Officer Jeff Lee with the Los Angeles Police Department tells PEOPLE that local authorities responded to a call on Thursday shortly after 6:30 p.m. for a possible suicide attempt at a Studio City, California, home.

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

A spokesperson at the Los Angeles Fire Department also confirms to PEOPLE that they were called to the address for a possible stabbing and transported one patient to the local hospital via ambulance.

A representative for Adler, 54, did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

News that Adler had been rushed to the hospital was first reported by TMZ. According to the outlet, no one else was involved with the incident.

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Adler joined Guns N’ Roses — founded by Axl Rose, Izzy Stradlin, and L.A. Guns members Tracii Guns, Ole Beich and Rob Gardner, in 1985.

The group went on to release their debut album Appetite for Destruction in 1987. The project has sold over 28 million copies worldwide.

Over the years, Adler has publicly struggled with substance abuse.

Trouble began for the star during December 1987 when the group was forced to replace Adler while on tour after he broke his hand following an alleged brawl, Rolling Stone reported.

Adler was absent from the group again in 1989 during the American Music Awards. At the time, it was said he was missing due to the flu, but it was later revealed that Adler was in a drug rehabilitation program.

Adler was later kicked out of the group in 1990 over his drug use, according to Rolling Stone. However, he was able to rejoin the band after signing a contract that he would refrain from drugs.

He was then fired again from the group that same year after his addiction grew out of hand.

Five years later, Adler was arrested at his Calabasas home on a felony charge of heroin possession, the Los Angeles Times reported at the time.

In 2008, Adler appeared on the second season of the reality TV show Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.

Despite his many obstacles, Adler was recognized for his musical contributions when he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Guns N’ Roses in 2012.

Guns N’ Roses is currently in the middle of their Not in This Lifetime Tour.

Ex-Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler hospitalized after possible suicide attempt

By Eileen Reslen

Former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler was hospitalized in Los Angeles Thursday after a possible suicide attempt, a Los Angeles Police Department source told Page Six.

He suffered non-life threatening injuries. According to TMZ, Adler, 54, stabbed himself in the stomach.

“Officers responded to Adler’s Studio City, California home at around 6:30 p.m. PT on a call of a possible suicide attempt,” Officer Mike Lopez told us. “When they arrived, officers determined that no crime had been committed and deemed the incident a medical emergency only.”

Lopez would not comment on whether anyone else was in the home when cops arrived. He said the Los Angeles Fire Department transported Adler to a nearby hospital.

A rep for Adler could not immediately be reached for comment.

Earlier on Thursday, Adler’s Instagram account promoted a gig he has coming up at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas on July 12.

In the comments for the post, fans sent their well wishes to the rocker, with one saying, “We’re with you Steven! Never forget how much you’re loved, hope you get better soon!” Another wrote, “Get well soon! Love and Peace to you.”
