Paula Abdul Reveals Her Painful Past

Jul 7th, 2004

by Contact Music

Pop star PAULA ABDUL is thrilled to have another chance at fame as a judge on AMERICAN IDOL because she once feared her career was over after a year of tragedy.

The STRAIGHT UP singer was forced to give up her pop career at the height of her success when she was hit with severe neck pain after two terrible accidents that happened within the same year.

She says, "I was hit by a drunk driver and I had a plane crash in the same year and it forced me to take a long break and nine neck surgeries - nobody knows that.

"There was a time where I couldn't talk. My vocal chords and my dancing pretty much were gone."

Abdul admits she kept the truth about her agony away from fans and the press because she didn't want anyone to feel sorry for her.

She adds, "I didn't want anyone to feel bad for me. I wanted to get through it."
