If you’ve ever seen Donny and Marie Osmond perform live in Las Vegas, you know that Donny busts his butt to put on a great show every evening.
Well apparently, Donny literally “busted his butt” during a show at the Flamingo Las Vegas last week when he tore his “gluteus maximus,” which has sidelined him from performing for at least two weeks, reports the Las Vegas Sun.
The 55-year-old entertainer aggravated an existing injury while leaping on to a piano during a performance and suffered a torn butt muscle.
Donny managed to play through the pain, but hasn’t been back on stage since the injury occurred. In his absence, another Osmond, brother Merrill, has temporarily filled his shoes until he recovers.
Even though the painful injury has sidelined Donny for a few weeks, it didn’t prevent Marie from making a few ‘cracks’ at his expense. She’s taken a few jabs at her brother’s injury with zingers like, “I’ve always known he’s been a butt, but now he’s proven it.”
