*Olympian Gabby Douglas continues to recover from an infection in her mouth that had her hospitalized over the weekend and unable to make Sunday’s “MTV Video Music Awards” alongside her fellow Final Five Olympic gymnasts.
“Gabby is back in the hospital tonight being treated for a seriously infected past mouth injury,” her rep told Page Six on Sunday night. “She continues to have deep swelling and adverse reactions to medications.”
Earlier Sunday, Douglas had tweeted a photo of herself at home recuperating, saying: “Out of the hospital & resting comfortably! #FinalFive so sad I can’t be with you all to present tonight. MTV thank u xoxo.”

But, as noted by her publicist late Sunday, Gabby was taken back to the hospital shortly after posting the update.
The other Final Five members – Aly Raisman, Madison Kocian, Laurie Hernandez and Simone Biles – all attended the awards show and publicly wished Douglas well before presenting the award for best female video to Beyonce.
