Russell Brand has canceled the rest of his comedy tour after his mother, Barbara Elizabeth, sustained several life-threatening injuries in a hit-and-run accident on Thursday.
In the video posted on his Twitter page, the comedian said:
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.
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.
I apologize, but obviously it’s circumstances beyond my control.
Russell also revealed his mother was already fragile because she’s a six-time cancer survivor.

Thanks for your kind messages.
