Jason Derulo breaks his neck while rehearsing for world tour




Singer Jason Derulo suffered a broken neck while rehearsing here in Florida his upcoming tour, and has been forced to cancel his world travels until he fully recovers. The accident has left him in a neck brace, which he will have to wear for the next few months. It will be the next hot trend by the spring.

"I fractured my neck doing tumbling & acrobatics 4 tour! Always tryin 2 push boundaries 4 YOU! Like my new chain? ;)" Derulo tweeted via @jasonderulo. The Hollywood Reporter says he fell on his head, fracturing a vertebra in his neck. He was taken to Memorial West Hospital in Pembroke Pines.

The scary part is that doctors say he could easily have been paralyzed from the accident. As it is, he won't be able to kick off his tour to the U.K. and beyond in February, or much of anywhere else. "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," he said in a press release from Warner Bros. Records. "My fans mean everything to me, so I’m praying for a speedy recovery in order to perform for you in the near future."
