Christina Aguilera is on the mend after slicing two tendons in her hand, her rep tells PEOPLE.

Aguilera's publicist, Jill Fritzo, says the 24-year-old pop star cut her hand on a piece of glass at her Los Angeles-area home. Her arm will remain in a cast for a few weeks in order for her injuries to heal correctly. "It is uncomfortable and she has it in a sling to rest it," says Fritzo.

The rep provided no further details about the incident, but it counters tabloid reports earlier in the week claiming the singer's injuries came after a scuffle with an drunken and over-eager fan in a Paris nightclub.

Fritzo says the tabloid reports actually came from a two-year-old story that had been mixed up with Aguilera's current injury, which "had nothing to do with a fan."

Meanwhile, it's been a busy year for Aguilera, who got engaged Feb. 11 to music executive Jordan Bratman, 28. She also has been in the studio working on an upcoming album with rocker Courtney Love.
