Ginuwine is getting back on the saddle after suffering a health scare during a magic stunt.
Earlier this week, the “Pony” singer was rehearsing a stunt for the new CW reality series Criss Angel’s Magic with the Stars when he lost consciousness, the Daily Mail reported. In a video posted by the outlet Oct. 12, Ginuwine is seen submerged underwater in a glass cube, and after appearing to signal his distress by hitting the sides, is helped out by crew members. While he’s initially unresponsive when asked if he’s okay, the video later shows him conscious as he’s helped to the floor.
However, since the incident, Ginuwine has “made a full recovery,” his rep told People. The spokesperson added, “He was conquering a fear. Fortunately everything is OK as he was working with Criss Angel, who’s the best in the business.”
According to the outlet, an ambulance was called and Ginuwine was carried off set unconscious, later making a full recovery. “It all happened so fast, it was like he got tapped out in a fight,” a source told the publication. “In the show he was trying to overcome his fear of being under water as he couldn’t hold his breath for longer than 15 seconds before trying the stunt out.”
Angel posted a trailer for Ginuwine’s episode of Magic With the Stars to his Instagram on Tuesday (Oct. 11). Ginuwine commented below, “My folks [hands up emoji].” However it has not been indicated if his comment was before or after the magic-trick-gone-wrong.
Magic With the Stars, is set to premiere on Oct. 22. The show pairs celebrities with Angel in Las Vegas to perform magic tricks. Angel will join Loni Love and magician Lance Burton as judges on the new show.
