"Gavin DeGraw was assaulted late Sunday night and taken to the emergency room at Bellevue Hospital by ambulance. He is currently under observation," said DeGraw's rep in a statement.

DeGraw, who had been drinking earlier in the night with a group of friends and was on his way home at around 4:00 AM, was attacked on the corner of 6th Street and 1st Avenue, according to the NY Post. As Gavin walked away after the incident, he was reportedly hit by a taxi, although not seriously.

NYPD spokesperson Lieutenant John Grimpel told Reuters the exact reason for the attack was not clear but that it did not appear to be a robbery. The identities of the assailants remain unknown.

The singer, 34, is currently touring with Maroon 5 and was scheduled to appear at a gig in Sarasota Springs, NY on Tuesday evening, but the local FOX affiliate has reported the show has been canceled.

Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine tweeted, "Please send your love to @gavindegraw tonight. We love you buddy. Get well and get back out here!"

UPDATE: Gavin just tweeted for the first time since his attack, saying, "Honestly, I don't remember much. I only know I can recover from here. Thank u all for your genuine concern. I love u guys." The singer currently remains under observation at Bellevue Hospital.
