Louis Tomlinson was “gutted” he had to postpone several fan events after suffering a significant injury — a broken arm.

The singer took to Instagram on Sunday to share a note to his followers explaining what happened. “The show last night in New York was incredible. Unfortunately on the way back I’ve managed to fall and break my arm pretty badly,” he explained. “So I’m gutted to say I’ll have to reschedule the in-store signings next week.”

He vowed to reveal the rescheduled dates “very soon” and thanked his fans for their support.

Louis also showed the severity of his injury by sharing two X-rays of his right arm. The slides show the snapped bone, which appears to be the humerus. 

Louis did not reveal how long it’ll take his injury to fully heal or how it’ll affect his future plans. He also declined to reveal how that nasty break happened.

The singer later took to Twitter to thank fans for the support of his new album, Faith in the Future, and remarked it is “Easing the pain of my broken arm haha!”
