Janet Jackson Postpones Unbreakable Tour To Plan Her Family

The singer assured fans: "I have not forgotten about you."

Janet Jackson announced that she'll be delaying her Unbreakable tour to plan her family with husband Wissam Al Mana. 

In a video posted to Twitter on Wednesday, the 49-year-old pop and R&B icon told fans that there "has been a sudden change" in the second leg of the tour. 

"I thought it was important that you be the first to know," she said, smiling. "My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour. Please, if you can, try to understand that it’s important that I do this now. I have to rest up; doctor’s orders. But I have not forgotten about you." 

Jackson then thanked fans for their support of the tour and assured everyone watching that she'd "continue the tour as soon as I possibly can." She also took a moment to thank her dancers, band, concert crew and LiveNation. 

Jackson announced a tour delay back in December, citing the need to undergo an unspecified surgery as the reason. She shared the news with fans via social media, asking them to "pray for me, my family and our entire company during this difficult time." 

New dates for the shows were released a couple weeks following that announcement, though Jackson still offered no details about her medical condition. She did, however, make sure to deny rumors that she had cancer

"Remember ... believe it when you hear it from my lips. The rumors are untrue. I do not have cancer. I'm recovering," she wrote in a Twitter message. "My doctors have approved my concerts as scheduled in Europe, and as I promised, the postponed shows will be rescheduled. Thank you for your prayers and love."

Jackson married Al Mana in a secret ceremony in 2012. If the couple is expecting, this would be their first child together.
