According to reports, 43-year-old Mariah stumbled in her high heels during the shoot in New York and was quickly taken to a hospital located on the Upper East Side to have her shoulder put back into place.

A press statement regarding the incident read: "Mariah Carey was injured while filming a video for the remix of '#Beautiful'...

"She was taken to hospital, where doctors reset her shoulder. She is fine and is recovering at home."

Before filming her new video, Mariah had been celebrating the 4th of July national holiday with her and Nick's twins, Monroe and Moroccan.

The mother of two has been focusing on her music a lot more lately, since announcing that she will not be returning as a judge on the next series of American Idol.
