The 32-year-old Scottish star, who was on his way to the airport to play a gig in Las Vegas, was taken to a hospital in LA after he suffered a laceration to the face.

An official statement on Calvin's Facebook page read: "Adam's transport was involved in a collision this evening on the way to the airport. As a result he will be unable to perform at Omnia tonight. He has been examined by doctors and told to rest for a few days."


Sources told US website TMZ: "Calvin was a passenger in a Cadillac SUV at around 11 PM when a VW Bug convertible driven by a 16-year-old girl crossed the center line, crashing into his vehicle.

"The VW bug was filled with teenagers and the accident so violent ... one of the passengers who was sitting on her boyfriend's lap was ejected."

TMZ then alleged: "Calvin suffered a laceration on his face that was bad enough to require immediate attention. Paramedics took him to an LA hospital.

"We're told he wanted a private room, and when they said one wasn't available he hopped off the gurney and left 'against medical advice'."

Following the accident, Calvin, who is dating Taylor Swift, cancelled his DJ set at Omnia nightclub in Las Vegas.

He also pulled out of his planned headline performance at Hangout Fest in Alabama on Saturday night.

Get well soon Calvin!
