"Hey you guys… Happy Holidays to each and every one of you. I need you to know, I learned today, from my doctors that I must have surgery soon. It breaks my heart to tell you that I am forced to postpone the Unbreakable Tour until the spring," she wrote. "Every date will be rescheduled. Please hold on to your tickets. They will be honored in a special way when the new schedule is announced. Please pray for me, my family and our entire company during this difficult time. There will be no further comment. I love you all so much and am ever grateful for your understanding and your love. Gon’ b alright."
ThisIs50.com reports that doctors had to operate on the singer's vocal chords after finding a tumor that could be cancerous.
A source told RadarOnline:
“Doctors found a growth on Janet’s vocal cords that could be serious. It’s a medical condition that has to be taken care of immediately.”
Dr. Stuart Fischer told Radar that cancer could end Janet's career:
“God forbid that this should be cancer of the larynx. That would abruptly end her ability to ever perform again.”
The younger sister of Michael Jackson's catalog is full of hit songs, including "Control", "Alright", "Someone To Call My Lover", "Nasty", "If", "What Have You Done For Me Lately", and many more.
Janet is also known for her high energy concerts and innovative dance moves.
We wish the music icon the very best and hope she will recover successfully and be able to continue her legendary career.
