News spread on social media that Puerto Rican trap artist Bad Bunny was in the hospital. What happened to Bad Bunny to land him there?
Telemundo confirmed that Bad Bunny had appendicitis. “Bad Bunny had an emergency appendicitis surgery yesterday. This is why he was taken into the hospital. He’s doing well and is currently recovering at the hospital,” said his publicist to Telemundo on July 10, 2020. Telemundo reported that Bad Bunny was taken to the hospital on July 9. The publicist told Telemundo that the singer is expected to recover and be fine.
The site, El Heraldo de Mexico, also gave some details about Bad Bunny’s health.
The site refers to him as a “Latin sensation of music,” and reported that Bad Bunny was in serious condition due to appendicitis, “which caused him to be admitted and operated on as an emergency.” It added that he was admitted to a hospital in the capital of Puerto Rico, where he was operated on. That site also reported that he’s expected to leave the hospital soon, though.
According to El Heraldo de Mexico, the singer was expected to be in the hospital for four days before being discharged.
Both of those sites cited “Noticentro” a television program on WAPA, which also reported that Bad Bunny is currently at Doctors Center Hospital in Puerto Rico; he had surgery an hour after arriving at the hospital, it says.

Playboy wrote with the cover photo on its Instagram page, “He has powers because he thinks differently and has a vision of the future beyond what others see.”
