*Former American Idol contestant, Jordin Sparks is currently recovering from a vicious animal attack in New York when somebody’s pit bull locked its jaw around her leg this past weekend.

Sparks reportedly took her pet doggy to a New York City park on Sunday, Sept. 12, so it could play with other dogs but an untrained pit ruined the outing when it ran up to Sparks and bit her on the leg.

Showing off a marking on her left leg during an appearance on Wendy Williams’ talk show on Monday, she explained:

“You see this bruise right here? … a New York experience. I took my dog to the dog park and I got bit by a pit bull!”

“He didn’t break the skin, thank goodness,” Sparks added, brushing off the incident since the animal didn’t draw blood. Sparks recently injured her hip a week after kicking off her run on Broadway’s “In The Heights.” Fortunately she will recover.
