    Steven Tyler reportedly fell in his hotel room.

    Steven Tyler was hospitalized in Paraguay’s capital Tuesday after taking a spill in his hotel bathroom, the newspaper ABC reported.

    The Aerosmith frontman and “American Idol” judge “had a nasty fall” that bloodied his face and took out several teeth, a bellboy from Bourbon Hotel told local radio, Reuters reported.

    Tyler had been set to perform with Aerosmith later that night, according to AFP.

    "Mr. Tyler had a small accident that prevents him from staging the concert tonight," a spokesman for the concert organizers told reporters, Fox News said. "He is fine, he's in his hotel, but he's not able to do the concert."

    Tyler is slated to perform Wednesday night.

    It’s not the first time Tyler has made news for taking a nasty tumble, but the falls have until now occurred onstage.

    Back in August 2010, Tyler was reportedly knocked offstage in Canada by bandmate Joe Perry while performing “Love in an Elevator.”

    One year earlier, he broke his shoulder while taking a spin off a catwalk while performing the same song during a South Dakota show and entered rehab for painkillers.
