Janet Jackson has given her fans yet another shock as she continues to bounce back from her months-long delay in her Unbreakable World Tour — she has revealed she is again pressing pause on the show!
The first round of postponements came toward the end of 2015 following the release of her eleventh studio album, Unbreakable. Jackson revealed in a statement in December that she would be undergoing a mystery surgery and needed to reschedule several tour dates in order to recover from the procedure! The details on her health crisis came just weeks after she initially postponed several shows due to her being placed on vocal rest by her doctors.
The reveal sparked several rumors about her health crisis, with the singer even releasing an additional statement slamming talk that she had been diagnosed with cancer. But Jackson’s tour has yet to pick up steam again after she said she had been cleared by doctors to resume touring, with the singer only performing at the Dubai World Cup in March after canceling all of the European tour dates she had scheduled that same month.
And on Wednesday morning, Jackson made yet another unexpected announcement, sharing in a YouTube video that she would again be halting her tour to begin planning a family with her husband, Wissam Al Mana!
Her fans immediately took to her social media accounts to offer their congratulations to the superstar. But many also shared their disappointment that her new life venture would mean the postponement of her comeback shows!
Some questions remain about the family announcement, seeing that Jackson doesn’t outright say she is pregnant. And she offers no additional details on what her family plans with Al Mana may be!
However, in the video, the singer offers hope that she will once again return to the stage to finish what she started during her extremely rocky Unbreakable era! “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,” she said. What do you think about Janet postponing her tour to start her family with Wissam?
