Calvin Harris’s call to Taylor Swift after car crash
Calvin Harris rang Taylor Swift after his car accident to assure her that he was safe.
The 32-year-old DJ was lucky to escape with minor injuries after a VW Beetle collided with his Cadillac SUV near Los Angeles International Airport last week and Calvin immediately called his 26-year-old girlfriend to tell her that he was ok.
A source told E! News: "He didn’t want to alarm her. She was very caring when they connected on the phone when it initially happened."
While Calvin had to cancel two gigs over the weekend as he recovered from the accident, he is doing much better and is expected to return to work soon.
The insider added: "He is keeping an eye on his body to make sure he is 100 per cent this week."
A representative for Calvin – whose real name is Adam Wiles – said he is "recovering", explaining: "Adam was a passenger in a vehicle that was struck in a serious collision in Los Angeles. He was examined by doctors and sustained a number of injuries. He has since been checked out of hospital and is now recovering. We wish all the other passengers involved in the incident a fast recovery."
Calvin – who was a passenger in the SUV and reportedly left hospital "against medical advice" because there were no private rooms available – called off Friday’s (05.20.16) DJ set at Omnia nightclub in Las Vegas after the accident and followed it up by pulling out of his planned headlining performance at Hangout Fest in Alabama on Saturday (05.21.16).
One of the passengers in the other car, driven by a 16 year old, reportedly broke her pelvis after being violently ejected from the vehicle in the collision.
