The last time we heard from Janet Jackson, she devastated a few thousand people when she announced that she was postponing her tour because she and her now-estranged-husband Wissam Al Mana were expecting their first and her first child together.
Well, since that day a little over a year ago, quite a bit has happened. Janet did give birth to a healthy baby boy. And then news that she and her husband were headed for divorce hit the internet.
Now, Janet is breaking her silence on all of it to confirm what the tabloids have been telling us, give us a bit of an update on her son and give some good news to the expectant and very patient fans.
“Hey you guys, it’s me Jan just in case you don’t recognize me because I have put on quite a few since I had the baby but I thank God. I thank God for him, you guys. He is so healthy, so beautiful, so sweet, so loving, such a happy baby.”
After the gushing, she addressed the news story that’s been attached to her name as of late.
“Yes, I separated from my husband. We are in court and the rest is in God’s hands…”
And then a message for the fans.
“I’m continuing my tour as I promised. I’m so excited you guys, so excited. 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.”
I want to thank you guys for your patience, for all of your support throughout the years. Thank you so much. I am so excited. I cannot wait to see you on stage September 7. Bye. See you soon!”
