Guns N’ Roses ex-drummer Steven Adler was hospitalized late Thursday evening, June 27th, with self-inflicted stab wounds.

Initial reports suggested the drummer may have attempted suicide, describing the injury as “self-inflicted stomach wounds.” A rep for Adler later reached out to TMZ to say that the wound was a very minor, superficial wound.

Apparently, Adler ‘accidentally’ stabbed himself. But the details of the accident have not been revealed.

The LAPD has since confirmed that officers responded to Adler’s home after a 911 call. He was transported to a local hospital for what the police report details as “non-life-threatening injuries.”

Adler’s struggle with drugs and addiction has been publicly chronicled.  He joined the band in 1985 and is a credited songwriter on the band’s debut album, Appetite for Destruction.  But he suffered a broken hand and missed several tour dates in 1987, eventually slipping into heavy addiction.

In 1989, after missing an appearance at the American Music Awards, Adler revealed that he was in rehab at the time.

Steven Adler’s continuing struggle with addiction ultimately led to his firing from Guns N’ Roses in 1990. He was later arrested for possession of heroin in 1995.  Adler’s difficulties to overcome addiction led him to try again for treatment at a rehab facility in 2008.

Reps for the ex-drummer have confirmed that he remains committed to his sobriety, reportedly achieved that year.

Adler stated in an interview with CNN in 2012 that sobriety is something he “works at every day.”

Guns N’ Roses is currently prepping to start another leg of their ‘Not In This Lifetime’ tour this September. Tour dates will stretch across the United States and Mexico.  Despite leaving the band in 1990, Adler has made several guest appearances on previous legs.  Reps have confirmed that Adler will still appear at a July 12th show in Las Vegas as planned.
