Turns out Bret Michaels DID break his nose during that on-stage accident at the Tony Awards last Sunday.
In addition, Michael's publicist says the frontman for Poison needed three stitches in his lip. He also suffered bruises, and underwent CAT scans to make sure he didn't suffer permanent injury.
Michaels was exiting the stage after performing with his band Poison at the awards ceremony when he was knocked off his feet by a descending piece of the set.
The rocker had laughed off the injury backstage, wiping away blood with a towel as host Neil Patrick Harris joked that he had given "a whole new meaning" to head-banging. (Photo: Splash News)
