Injured Jason Derulo Says Accident Made Him Closer to Girlfriend Jordin Sparks

R&B star Jason Derulo is steadily on the mend after fracturing his neck during rehearsals for his Future History world tour. Jason missed a landing and fell on his neck, causing a “Hang Man’s Break” which could have left him paralyzed, according to USA Today. Jason tells People: "It's been really eye opening. It's given me a chance to look at everything and realize how blessed I truly am."

The R&B singer also finally confirmed he’s dating American Idol's Jordin Sparks after months of rumors of a love connection between the two musicians. Jordin has been instrumental in Jason’s recovery, he says. "She lives in Phoenix and she comes [to Miami] and takes care of me, brings me breakfast in bed and she'll go on walks with me. We've gotten closer because of my accident. It's awesome to have someone you can talk to and she's a wonderful person."
