Going on tour as an artist, especially one as big as Alesso, means getting close to the crew who are with you for often weeks at a time. So when one of those people gets hurt, it’s really like a family member being injured. This past Tuesday, Alesso’s photographer Corentin was involved in a near-fatal hit and run in Los Angeles that has left him in the ICU.
“He had brain bleeding, 10 broken ribs on his left side (a lot bruising in lungs), a ruptured spleen, broken left shoulder blade, and broken left leg,” Alesso wrote on Instagram. “He will be in the ICU for at least 7 days. We won’t know how he is going to be.”
He still remains in the ICU as of yesterday.
Alesso and his team have set up a GoFundMe for Corentin’s hospital bills. Alesso himself put up $14,000 toward his recovery. Give, if you can, here.

On Tuesday, November 6, our friend Corentin was a victim of a hit & run accident. Corentin was hit by a car as he was crossing the street in Hollywood. The car took off but LAPD is investigating as we were able to get a clear picture of the license plate Nobody deserves to suffer like Corentin right now but especially him. Corentin is one of the most loving and positive people in the world. As of today, November 8, Corentin remains in ICU in critical condition after having brain surgery yesterday. This is what the doctor told us: – He had brain bleeding. – 10 Broken Ribs In left side (a lot bruising in lungs) – Rupture Spleen – Left broken shoulder blade – Left broken leg He will be in the ICU for at least 7 days. We won’t know how he is going to be. They are monitoring hour by hour. He gave thumbs up which is positive. We are raising money so Corentin can get the treatment to help him full recover and be able to move and think like he was before this accident. LINK IN MY BIO TO DONATE! Thank you.
A previous version of this article claimed Alesso had only donated $2,000. We regret the error.
