American Pop superstar Jason Derulo

Jason Derulo is reportedly 'unable to walk without the help of crutches' after breaking his foot while playing basketball with friends.

The 33-year-old singer is hoping to recover ahead of his Super Bowl performance, but is said to be adamant about powering through even if he's still injured.

Jason is expected to perform on February 12 when Kansas City Chiefs face Philadelphia Eagles at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

However, his headline show has been put at risk by a torn ligament he sustained three weeks ago, with Jason now reportedly relying on the support of a cane.

He is thought to have injured his foot after leaping into the air for a rebound before landing awkwardly on his foot.

Jason is said to have avoided surgery after having stem cell injections, which are hoped will speed up his recovering time.

The musician is now going to physical therapy daily, according to TMZ.

Jason was named as a headliner for the NFL TikTok Tailgate alongside The Black Keys, with the performance set to take place ahead of the big game.

Jason announced the show on Twitter, writing: "We're baaaaaack for year three of #TikTokTailgate.

"Me and @theblackkeys are kicking things off for us at our 2023 TikTok Tailgate! Catch the show on Feb. 12."

The Black Keys added: "Words can’t express how honored and excited we are to have been asked by the NFL to join the Super Bowl festivities and perform at the TikTok Tailgate party.

"As longtime football fans, we couldn’t think of a better way to kick off Super Bowl Sunday. See you in Arizona."

Jason's fans can't wait for his performance, with one person tweeting: "How do we get tickets is we are already going to the Super Bowl? Desperate to see this!!"

Another said: "Yeah Am right there with you!"

As well as his Super Bowl performance, Jason is also set to judge a new BBC Three series, Project Icon.
