Janet Jackson postponing 'Unbreakable' tour to plan a family

Time to take a deep breath, Janet Jackson fans.

The singer posted a video clip on her Twitter account and website early Wednesday morning to alert fans that she is delaying the second leg of her “Unbreakable” tour, apparently to start a family.

“My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m gonna have to delay the tour…I have to rest up, doctors orders...I will continue the tour as soon as I possibly can,” she says in the video, flashing a smile.

Jackson, 49, went on thank her dancers, her crew and tour promoter Live Nation, as well as her fans: “All of your undying love, your loyalty; that means so much to me. You guys have been there each and every step of the way….I will see you soon, I love you.”

No official postponement or cancellation notice has come from Live Nation or Philips Arena yet, where Jackson was scheduled to perform on Aug. 7. That date was a makeup from her original March 3 show scheduled for the arena, which she canceled in December because of mysterious surgery (responding to rumors that she was undergoing cancer treatment, Jackson took to social media in January to refute those reports ).

This new leg of the “Unbreakable” tour was slated to launch May 14 in Las Vegas.

Stay tuned for updates.
