Rumors recently circulated online that Janet Jackson may have throat cancer after she postponed dates on her Unbreakable world tour to undergo surgery. The pop star did not specify what type of surgery she would be having, which may have contributed to speculation.
Jackson posted a video on YouTube explicitly stating that the rumors are not true, that she does not have cancer, and that she is currently in recovery.
Just before Christmas, Jackson took to Twitter to ask her fans for support. “Please pray for me, my family and our entire company during this difficult time.” She later reassures them, “Gon’ b (sic) alright.”
Jackson promises for all of her postponed shows to be rescheduled and should be back out on tour beginning on March 30 in Birmingham, U.K.
