Wynonna Judd's husband loses a limb
Wynonna Judd's husband, Cactus Moser, was in a terrible accident on Aug. 18. Early reports indicated the newlywed had been severely hurt but didn't detail the full extent of his life-altering injuries.
Wynonna Judd's husband, Cactus Moser, has a very long road ahead to heal from his Aug. 18 motorcycle accident. A rep confirmed Monday he has undergone amputation after his leg was severed when his bike collided with another vehicle.
Cactus Moser, birth name Michael Scott Moser, and his wife of two months had been out for a ride on separate bikes in Deadwood, S.D., at the time of the accident. The singer was reportedly ahead of him when the life-altering crash occurred.
A rep for Wynonna Judd spoke to Us Weekly Monday, confirming the musician's left leg was "severed at the scene of the accident," and doctors at a hospital in Rapid City decided it was best to amputate above the knee.
"He has also undergone surgery to his hand," the rep added in a statement. "Judd and Moser appreciate all of the quick medical and police responders as well as the hospital staff and well-wishes from family, friends and fans."
Cactus Moser and Wynonna Judd, seen here in May, tied the knot on June 10. The bride chose to go barefoot for the ceremony in Tennessee, and while her children were in attendance, her sister, actress Ashley Judd, and mother, Naomi Judd, were not.
The 48-year-old singer has postponed numerous concerts as a result of Moser's accident. "The outpouring of prayer and support from friends, family and fans has been a blessing to both Cactus and I. Cactus is a champion," Wynonna Judd said in a personal statement over the weekend. "I love him deeply and I will not leave his side."
Our hearts go out to the newlyweds today.
