According to Janet Jackson’s rep, the 42-year-old entertainer is “feeling much better.” After weeks of speculation that the pop singer might be pregnant with JD’s child, the mystery illness that prohibited Janet from performing her shows has been revealed. People is reporting that she was suffering from vestibular migraines, an unusual condition that creates the sensation of vertigo.
“[Janet is] a world-class entertainer and needs to be at the top of her game to give her fans the show they expect,” manager Kenneth Crear said in the statement. “She’s feeling much better and is ready to hit the road again.”
As we reported earlier this morning, Janet is set to return to the stage tonight in D.C., and Thursday’s show in Madison Square Garden (NYC) has been postponed to November 1st. All of the other postponed dates haven’t been worked out 100% yet, but her rep says that they will be announced shortly.
UPDATE: Janet has released a statement to her fans via SayNow denouncing all rumors that were created about her illness and the status of her tour. Check out the message player below.
