The singer was climbing down from the lofty platform in the backyard of her Woodside, California home when she slipped and tumbled to the ground.

She was treated for minor injuries at Stanford Hospital and is now "resting comfortably", according to a spokesperson.

The Diamonds & Rust hitmaker has previously admitted she often sleeps in her beloved treehouse, which is nestled in a 200-year-old oak tree.
