Jason Derulo broke his neck in January while rehearsing for tour, forcing him to cancel the trek and embark on a long recovery process. But he got through the tragic accident with some assistance offered by two female pop stars: his girlfriend Jordin Sparks and his friend Jessie J.
"Being in a relationship has changed me a lot," Derulo told The Daily Star about Sparks, who he has been dating for under a year. "When I feel lonely I can pick up the phone and she's there for me. It's really cool to have that backbone."
Derulo's injury could have been deadly, as he broke the same bone that snaps when a person is hanged. Ouch! He was able to seek comfort from British diva Jessie J, who was also forced to cancel her own tour dates due to a broken foot last fall. "My accident brought us together because she understood what I was going through. She was able to give me some advice and help me through the situation," Derulo said. "Jessie is a sweetheart and has been really helpful."
Derulo continues to work on getting better and will be back on the road sooner than later.
Should Jason, Jordin and Jessie duet? That's a lot of Js!
