New celebrity couple alert: Jordin Sparks, the winner of the sixth season of American Idol, is officially dating R&B singer Jason Derulo! Read on for the details about the musical duo and what has recently brought the two even closer to each other very recently.
According to The Huffington Post, Jason Derulo fractured his neck while practicing some dance moves during a tour rehearsal three weeks ago. He landed on his head and snapped a vertebrae, all while brushing up on a move that he says he’s performed hundreds of times.
“It’s been a really eye opening [experience],” he told People. “It’s given me a chance to look at everything and realize how blessed I truly am.”
Derulo also took the recent press opportunity to confirm his dating situation with Jordin Sparks!
“We are together. 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.
Though the accident “hurt like hell,” there is some good that has come out of his broken neck.
“We’ve gotten closer because of my accident. It’s awesome to have someone you can talk to and she’s a wonderful person.”
Derulo and Sparks were first spotted out together in September 2011, but neither party confirmed that the two were dating.
