Disney’s Camp Rock 2 star, Matthew “MDot” Finley, was in a serious motorcycle accident in Malibu, CA and has just been released from the hospital. Last Thursday, Mdot’s Ducati bike skidded off a 100-foot cliff on Mullholland Drive when he lost control on a turn. He suffered compound fractures and injuries to his face and head and shattered his shin bone. According to TMZ, Mdot “has already undergone several surgeries to repair damage to his leg … and will require more surgery in the near future.”
Mdot’s rep told EOnline.com today, ”He (Mdot) wants to get back in the studio with Nick Jonas and his producer Dapo … who are helping him create R&B and pop music without a parental warning sticker.”
