Coming as assuredly disappointing news to his many fans, Jason Derulo suffered an injury to his neck on Tuesday (January 3) which has forced him to cancel all touring and promotional activities.

According to an official press release, the 22-year-old Miami native hurt himself while training for his upcoming World Tour in support of his current album Future History, which was scheduled to commence in Glasgow on February 23rd.

The statement adds, "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. Anyone holding tickets for upcoming shows will be refunded at point of purchase."

Apologizing for the setback, Derulo told, “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. My fans mean everything to me, so I’m praying for a speedy recovery in order to perform for you in the near future.”
