Jason Derulo ‘is unable to walk without crutches’ and faces race against time to be fit for headline Super Bowl show after breaking his FOOT during basketball match
Jason Derulo is facing a race against time to be fit for his Super Bowl performance after breaking his foot while playing basketball with friends.
The singer is expected to perform on February 12, when Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles go head-to-head at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
But his live performance has been compromised by a torn ligament sustained during basketball match three weeks ago, with the singer now unable to walk without a cane.

Derulo had leaped into the air for a rebound before landing awkwardly on a rival player’s foot, TMZ reports.
The singer is understood to have avoided surgery after having stem cell injections to speed up his recovery ahead of the Super Bowl show, and is now undergoing daily physical therapy.
Derulo is expected to perform next weekend after being named alongside The Black Keys as a headliner for the NFL TikTok Tailgate, which takes place ahead of the game.
While it’s unclear if he will be fully fit ahead of the show, the singer is understood to be adamant that he will take to the stage regardless – even if he needs crutches to do it.
Derulo is also set to judge a new BBC Three series, Project Icon in the hope to shape a new star into the industry.
The six-part series will see eight aspiring artists to compete against each other to see whether they can transform from a bedroom singer into an all-round music star.
