EXCLUSIVE: Melyssa Ford Released For LA Hospital After Near Fatal Car Crash
theJasmineBRAND exclusively reports Melyssa Ford has been released from a local Los Angeles hospital, following her near fatal car crash last month on Ventura Freeway. As previously reported, the radio and TV personality suffered a concussion, fractured skull, bleeding on the brain and a 10-inch head wound that had to be surgically closed with staples and stitches. Sources tell us,
She also has staples in her elbows and other severe cuts and bruises on her entire body. She’s walking with the assistance of a walker and will have to undergo therapy to fully recover.
A GoFundMe by close friend Claudia Jordan, has been launched to help with medical expenses. Thus far, over $20,000.00 has been raised. A number of celebrities have donated including sports journalist Stephen A. Smith, former NFL star and future Hall of Famer Osi Umenyiora, Bevy Smith from Melyssa’s Bravo TV family, former BET colleagues Julissa Bermudez and Big Tigger. Media outlets have also shared the GoFundMe link in an effort to both raise awareness and funds.
Sources close to Melyssa are a bit disappointed that some of the high profile celebrities that she has working relationships with haven’t stepped in to lend their support.
Melyssa has been in this industry for years and I’m surprised that some of these celebs that she’s friends with, haven’t donated or shared the GoFundMe link. She’s such a giving person. It’s disheartening.
We’re told her focus now is to heal and move past this experience.
Melyssa is still emotionally trying to process this nightmare. Her family and close friends will continue to support her through this ordeal.
