High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star Joshua Bassett revealed he’s undergone surgery for a mystery ailment.
The Disney star took to Instagram on Thursday night to share a clip of himself in hospital and update his fans about his health.
The 20-year-old could be seen in a hospital gown and holding up the peace sign as he wrote: ‘welp… not the first place i assumed i’d be on my Lie Lie Lie release day… the ER!! (before you ask, no it’s not covid.)
‘after an unknown, uncomfortable feeling turned into, times 10, the worst pain of my life, i figured i’d just try to sleep. after multiple, very very ugly days and nights, i had no choice today but be taken to the hospital.(sic)’
He continued: ‘i’d like to say thank you!!!! for all the support on the song!!! i’ve been doing what i can today to stay involved. had my first surgery tonight !
‘gonna rest at the hospital and the doctors will see what they see in the morn!
much love to all! (sic)’

The musician then added: ‘(p.s.the doctors here are the sweetest, most professional people in the ?. they’ve made me feel very safe!)
‘(p.P.s. according to the doc, i now have the medal for “the sickest patient in the hospital.” how cool!!!)’ (sic).
His hospitalization came on the same day that the singer released his new single, Lie Lie Lie.
The accompanying music video sees the entertainer playing the guitar in an empty house, posing against a pink backdrop and driving in the desert.
However, Joshua wrote the single in 2019 so it’s unlikely the track is a response to Olivia’s new hit track Driver’s License.
