    The former "Degrassi: The Next Generation" star -- who was linked to Rihanna earlier this summer -- tore his ACL in June and decided to go on the "America's Most Wanted" tour with Lil' Wayne, Young Jeezy and Soulja Boy just a week before it began.

    "I didn't really get any approval from my doctor," he told MTV News. "I'd be letting a lot of people down if I didn't show up and at least show them I'm there for them."

    After the incident, Drake updated fans via Twitter, reassuring them that he was okay.

    "All is well...," he tweeted. "On the bus laying down... Getting surgery this week but I'm walking."
