Justin Timberlake now has a broken limb to match the broken heart he sings about on Justified.

‘NSYNC’s first solo star broke his foot earlier this week while rehearsing for several upcoming television performances and has canceled all promotional events scheduled for the next two weeks. Details on how the injury occurred were not available.

“I am sorely disappointed that I must miss any scheduled events,” Timberlake said in a statement. “However, I must adhere to my physician’s recommendations and rest. I look forward to being able to perform again and hope to see all my fans soon.”

Timberlake will miss an appearance Wednesday at Much Music’s “Live@Much” and a co-hosting and performing gig Sunday at the Smash Hits Poll Winners Party in London, among other events.

Timberlake is still scheduled to perform at the Billboard Music Awards on December 9 in Las Vegas. The singer said recently he will not tour behind Justified until next summer.

The video for “Cry Me a River,” Timberlake’s second solo single, will premiere later this month.
