Model-turned-actress Angie Everhart has been hospitalised after damaging her ankle.

Joe Pesci's former fiancee, who beat thyroid cancer last year (13), was treated by doctors over the weekend (01-02Mar14) after she sustained a bizarre injury.

In a post on on Thursday (06Mar14), Everhart writes, "I had a crazy experience this past weekend. Injured my ankle by crossing my legs too long. Wtf?! (what the f**k)...

"The crossing of my leg on my perineal nerve cause (sic) it to go to sleep, can't move my foot. No joke. Was in hospital for 3 days. I'm in a leg brace and all. Doc (sic) says it will come back but will take a few weeks. Very scary."
