DJ Calvin Harris was forced to cancel a gig on doctor’s orders after the car he was travelling in collided with another vehicle in Los Angeles.

The Scottish producer, whose real name is Adam Richard Wiles, reportedly suffered a cut in the crash late on Friday night.

The Feel So Close singer, who is dating Taylor Swift, had to pull out of a performance at the Omnia nightclub in Las Vegas after he was told to take a few days off to recover.

He was a passenger in a Cadillac on his way to the city’s airport in Los Angeles when the vehicle collided with a Volkswagen Beetle.

The Beetle, which was reportedly being driven by a 16-year-old girl, had crossed the centre line prior to the crash.

A statement on the performer’s official Facebook page said: “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. Calvin HQ.”
