Singer Jason Derulo says girlfriendsaved him from falling into deep depression after his sever neck injury during one of his performances this January. Last night results on the Idol might end up Derulo in the kitchen, after losing the bet on the show’s winner.
In a recent interview with Fox, Jason Derulo said that after spending four and a half months of wearing a neck brace, he finally feels back in shape after performing his new single “Undefeated” during American Idol’s finale on Wednesday. “I am two weeks removed [from the neck brace] and tonight’s performance was invigorating," he said. "It was like a second chance at life, I had a great time up there."
In January, Derulo’s hands free back flip went terribly wrong and he landed on his had, breaking a vertebra in his neck. His injury was so serious that he could have been paralyzed forever or worse, dead. But after struggling for 4 months he’s finally been able to stand on his own feet and all the credit goes to Jordin Sparks.
“Just her being there when she could have been anywhere else in the world was an impact for me," he said. “I guess the best way to put it is that she was the backbone to the situation, a lot of people get really low into crazy depression and stuff like that but when you have someone it makes everything so much better.
In an earlier interview with People magazine, Derulo said the accident helps bring the couple even closer than before. “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," he said. "It's awesome to have someone you can talk to and she's a wonderful person."
The two however, had a different team to support when it came to this year’s American Idol winner. They have placed their bets on their favorites, but it’s not going to be about money. Derulo is in favor of Jessica while Sparks thinks Phillip will win, Derulo told ET Online. "If I win, she has to massage my feet for ten minutes - and she hates feet,” he laughed, “and if she wins, I have to cook her a meal, and I can't cook for anything. So I have to figure out what a recipe is!"
Well, given last night results, it appears the singer will be spending sometime in the kitchen for his famous girlfriend.
