Last month Janet Jackson postponed the US leg of her world tour so that she could have surgery for an undisclosed health issue. Rumors soon surfaced that Jackson was battling cancer. However, in a statement issued this evening, Jackson denied this to be the case.
“The rumors are untrue, I do not have cancer,” Jackson wrote in her statement. She did not specify her actual ailment, but did add that is recovering. She also said doctors have given her approval to go ahead with her scheduled UK/European tour set to begin in late March, and promises to reschedule the postponed US tour.
Jackson’s full statement can be seen in the video below.
