Jewel sustained a broken collarbone and a broken rib yesterday, when she was thrown from a horse at her boyfriend, rodeo star Ty Murray’s Texas ranch. The singer also suffered severe bruises but did not need to be hospitalized. She will, however, have to wear a collar and a sling for the next four weeks.
Per her doctor’s orders, Jewel will not travel for the next two weeks, forcing her to cancel her appearance at Fan Nation in Irvine, Calif., on April 27th. A decision about upcoming promotional stops and European tour has not been made and will depend how she recuperates from her injuries. For now, the European dates are set to begin May 10th in Milan, Italy, with a U.S. tour scheduled to begin in June.
Jewel’s ranch accident is the second for a pop singer this year. Last month, Lyle Lovett was seriously hurt when he was trampled by a bull at his uncle’s farm in Texas. He is currently undergoing rehabilitation for his broken right leg.
