No, his "man parts" did not get burned.

As I Lay Dying vocalist Tim Lambesis took to Instagram on Sunday (Jan. 3) to give fans an update on his recovery process, three weeks after a bonfire accident that left him hospitalized with burns that covered 25% of his body.

In the clip, he shared that it's the first day he's been out of bed and the day before was the first time his wounds did not need to be scrubbed. "That’s a huge relief because scrubbing my wounds is by far the most painful part of the recovery process,” he shared.

“I’m very thankful that my face did not get burned and, for whatever reason, it’s a very common question so I should let you know that my man parts did not get burned,” he continued. “I did lose 20 pounds from being stuck in bed for three weeks and I do have shakes, as you can see, from my nerves re-connecting. It’s not really something I can control quite yet but I will get it all back together. I just am very very thankful for everybody that wrote me.”

In December, Lambesis explained that while trying to start a bonfire, the cap of a gas canister fell off and soon, his body was covered in flames.

The singer reunited with As I Lay Dying in 2018. He was released from prison early in 2016, after he was sentenced to six years in prison for conspiracy to commit murder in 2014. He pleaded guilty to paying a hitman $1,000 to kill his now ex-wife, Meggan Lambesis.
