Pop star Mariah Carey has dislocated her shoulder after taking a tumble on the set of her latest music video.

The 43-year-old Hero singer was in New York filming for the remix of her single #Beautiful with rapper Young Jeezy when the accident happened.

Some reports suggest she may have tripped over while dancing in heels for the video, which was being directed by husband Nick Cannon.

The singer was taken to hospital where doctors were able to put her shoulder back into place.

Her spokeswoman said she was “fine” and that she was “recovering at home”.

Carey is expected to perform with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra in New York’s Central Park at a concert to raise money for victims of Superstorm Sandy.

In May, she announced she was quitting TV talent show American Idol to “focus on the music”.

#Beautiful, which Carey originally recorded with Grammy Award-winning R&B singer Miguel, peaked at number 22 in the UK singles chart and reached number 15 in the US.
