Jason DeRulo Cancels Tour After Fracturing Neck In Rehearsals

Jason DeRulo - Facebook

Jason DeRulo isn’t riding solo these days. He’s got a neck brace to keep him company.

The 22-year-old pop star fractured his neck while rehearsing for his upcoming tour, he announced via Facebook. He posted the above photo, which was captioned: “I fractured my neck doing tumbling & acrobatics 4 tour! Always tryin 2 push boundaries 4 YOU! Like my new chain? ;)”

Adds the press release from DeRulo’s record label, Warner Bros. Records: “While executing an acrobatic move, Derulo landed directly on his head, and suffered an acute fracture to his vertebra. After being rushed to Memorial West Hospital in Miami’s Pembroke Pines, FL, he was told by doctors that the accident could have left him paralyzed. Derulo has been released from the hospital but must wear a neck brace for the next few months.”

The mishap has led to the cancellation of DeRulo’s tour and other promotional obligations for his new album, Future History, “until further notice,” says Warner Bros.

“To all my fans who planned to come to the Future History World tour, the pain of letting you down cuts me way deeper than this injury I’ve sustained,” Jason said in a statement. “My fans mean everything to me, so I’m praying for a speedy recovery in order to perform for you in the near future.”

Refunds for tickets will be given at the point of purchase.
