Written by Staff on May 18, 2017
Janet Jackson has announced she is going back on tour later this year, returning to the stage in the United States and Canada after taking time off to give birth to her first child.
In a video message to fans, the pop star also referred to media reports that she had split from her Qatari businessman husband Wissam Al Mana, saying: “Yes I separated from my husband, we are in court and the rest is in God’s hands”.
Jackson, now 51, said she was postponing her “Unbreakable” music tour due to a “sudden change” in the couple’s plans to start a family. She gave birth to son Eissa in January 2017.
“I’m continuing my tour as I promised, I’m so excited,” the singer said in the video posted on her Twitter feed, thanking fans for their patience and support.
“I decided to change the name of the tour, ’State of the World’ tour. It’s not about politics, it’s about people, the world, relationships and just love.”
