Jason, 22, recently chatted with People mag about his recovery and opened up about his new relationship with Jordin, also 22.
“I’m taking it one day at a time,” he dished. “It’s been really eye opening. It’s given me a chance to look at everything and realize how blessed I truly am. It was shocking because I’ve never broken a bone or anything! [But it] hurt like h—.”
Jason adds of Jordin, “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. We’ve gotten closer because of my accident. It’s awesome to have someone you can talk to and she’s a wonderful person.”
Earlier this year, Jason suffered an acute fracture to his vertebra after performing an acrobatic move during rehearsals for his world tour.
