Derek Hough Cancels Tour, Updates Fans on Haley Erbert

Last week, Hough took to Instagram to share that Erbert had been taken to the hospital after a tour performance. She underwent an emergency craniectomy after being diagnosed with a cranial hematoma from a burst blood vessel.

At the time, Hough said Erbert was “in stable condition.” He later updated fans to say that Erbert is “on the long road of recovery.” Hough told followers, “Words cannot express how grateful and thankful we are for the support and love that you have given us.”

Hough and Erbert still had a number of dates left on the Symphony of Dance tour this year. A message on Hough’s website states that these dates have been postponed. Fans have been told to keep their tickets, which will be honored for a new date once they are announced.

The couple, who went public with their romance in 2017, tied the knot in August of this year. They kicked off the Symphony of Dance Tour on November 22 and performed several dates around the country before Erbert’s hospitalization.


Erbert’s Parents Share Updates on Her Condition

According to Heavy, both of Erbert’s fans shared updates about their daughter’s condition on social media. As Erbert’s mother Debbie Schwartz wrote on Instagram, “We are asking that you continue to pray because it’s working!”

“She started talking to us mid-day and I don’t think I have ever been more relieved in my life. She’s a strong and mighty little thing and she’s got this,” Schwartz wrote. “Please keep Derek in your prayers as well. His heart is hurting so much.

Erbert’s father, Jerry Erbert, posted an update on Facebook which was shared on a fan page. He wrote that his daughter was “doing much better,” adding that at 1 p.m., she “opened her left eye and would squeeze your hand when you talked to her.” By 4 p.m., he wrote that she had her eyes open, did not have a breathing tube, and “was talking and joking with us.”
