Machine Gun Kelly’s drummer has been hospitalised after reportedly being attacked, robbed, and run over by a car.

Rook – real name JP Cappelletty – is thought to have been walking down a street in Hollywood Hills on Tuesday night, when two men jumped out of a vehicle to rob him.

According to TMZ, law enforcement sources have said that he had thousands of dollars of property stolen, and he was hit by a car, which injured his foot and arm.

However, Rook’s been keeping his spirits high, sharing a couple of snaps from his hospital bed and telling fans: ‘Don’t worry I’ll bounce back.’

The drummer could be seen raising his arm, which is in a cast, and posing with his Forget Me Too hitmaker pal as he visited him.

Rook, 27, first joined MGK, 30, for his Hostile Takeover tour in 2012, and the pair have been close ever since.

He got the job when he was a senior in high school, and never looked back after receiving the call from the punk rock star.

Rook previously told 13ABC about his ambition to make it big: ‘In high school my counsellors would be on me saying I know you want to be a rock star, but you need to have other choices.

‘I understood where they were coming from but I told them I was either going to be a drummer or a bum, that was my mind set.’

MGK – real name Richard Colson Baker – first saw success with his debut album Lace Up and released his record Tickets To My Downfall in October last year.

He was most recently seen hitting the studio with Mod Sun and Avril Lavigne, with the trio teasing a collaboration.

Metro.co.uk has contacted Rook, reps for Machine Gun Kelly, and the LAPD for comment.
