Jason Derulo shared the story when he appeared on the latest episode of Paris Hilton’s ‘I Am Paris’ podcast, noting that he thought it was going to be the end of him.

The 34-year-old artiste said he had to cancel the tour as a result of the accident and his recovery took seven months.

Jason recalled; “I broke my neck in 2013. 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?’”
