Paula Abdul has broken her nose after tripping over her pet Chihuahua.
The 'American Idol' judge, who was trying to avoid stepping on her tiny pooch, Tulip, ended up falling flat on her face on Saturday (19.05.07).
Paula told US TV show 'Extra': "I took a nasty fall trying not to hurt my dog. I bruised myself on my arm, my chest, my waist all the way down to my hip. All from my little chubby Tulip.
"Tulip has no remorse. She just stared at me."
Her representative David Brokaw said: "Paula went to the doctor and she did break her nose, but she's moving on and doing great.
She looks terrific. If you didn't know she broke her nose, you'd never guess anything happened to her.
"She is in pain. No question about that. But you'd never know anything happened to her. There are no bandages. She's got some bruises on her arms and on one of her legs.
"Tulip is fine. For dogs, every day is Saturday."
Despite her broken nose, Paula, is still planning to take her seat on the judging panel on tonight's 'American Idol' show (22.05.07) and the season finale tomorrow.
Jordin Sparks, 17, will compete against Blake Lewis to become the sixth 'American Idol'.
