Steven Tyler mashes face in fall

Tyler is recovering from "a nasty fall"



Trademark feature for American Idol judge and rock legend Steven Tyler? Got to be those hive-stung lips, right?

Well, they’re far more swollen than usual tonight. Reuters is reporting that while on a South American tour with his band Aerosmith, Tyler took a hard fall in his hotel shower in Asuncion, Paraguay.

The singer was rushed to the hospital with a bloodied face and missing teeth.

The country’s largest newspaper, ABC, reported that Tyler, 62, was observed being brought into the emergency room where he received three hours of treatment including dental implants before returning to his hotel.

The concert scheduled for Tuesday night was delayed.

Addiction experts have expressed concern about the incident's aftermath because Tyler’s most recent rehab stint in 2009 was for pain medication.
