“My mum has been a serious road accident and has sustained … numerous life-threatening injuries, so I won’t be able to do the rest of my Re:Birth tour,” Russell shared in an emotional video he posted from the hospital.

Though visibly upset, the 42-year-old did manage to speak to those who purchased tickets to his now canceled tour. “If you have tickets, they’ll be refunded or possibly rescheduled. But I can’t really imagine that; I certainly can’t imagine performing at the moment because I feel too sad and connected to this.”

He added, “I apologize, but obviously it’s circumstances beyond my control.” The Get Him to the Greek star was especially worried about his mother’s condition, as she has suffered from cancer in the past. “I’m sad for my mum because she’s vulnerable. She only finished chemotherapy a month ago and for her to be in this situation already is very difficult.”

According to The Sun, Barbara was coincidentally on her way to babysit the comedian’s (and wife Laura’s) 18-month-old daughter Mabel just last Thursday when she was involved in a hit-and-run. She was bleeding when she was pulled from the wreckage. The driver of the limo she was in was also taken to the hospital and is expected to have suffered less serious injuries.
