I broke my neck in gym – Jason Derulo recalls near-death experience

American singer Jason Derulo has recalled breaking his neck after falling on his head while rehearsing for his world tour in 2013.

The music star said he was training in the gym when the unfortunate incident happened and he had to cancel the tour.

On the latest episode of Paris Hilton’s ‘I Am Paris’ podcast, Derulo said he thought it was going to be the end of him.

He disclosed that his recovery took seven months.

“I broke my neck in 2013,” he recalled. “I was getting ready for my world tour and working with this trainer. He was like, ‘Today, we’re going to work on endurance, so I need you to do these back tucks back-to-back.’ I slipped during one of the back tucks, and I landed on my head, breaking my C-2 vertebrae.”

“As soon as it happened, I heard a big crack, and I was like, ‘Holy s**t, is this it? Is this how it all ends?’”
