After undergoing a neck injury earlier this week (Jan. 3), Pop/soul singer Jason Derulo has been ordered to cancel all touring and promotional activities.
“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,” Derulo states in a release. “My fans mean everything to me, so I’m praying for a speedy recovery in order to perform for you in the near future.”
Derulo, 22, injured himself while rehearsing for his upcoming World Tour in support of his recently released sophomore album, ‘Future History,’ which was scheduled to kick-off in Glasgow on February 23rd.
According to the release, 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.
Fans who purchased advance tickets for the upcoming shows will be refunded at point of purchase.
