Janet Jackson reveals new tour plans after split from husband

She gave birth to her first child in January

Posted on

In a personal video to her fans, Janet Jackson has revealed she’s headed back on tour, four months after giving birth to her first child and a month after separating from her husband.

Before announcing the news of her tour, the singer opened up about her “beautiful” son Eissa and “kept it real” when confirming her split from billionaire Wissam Al Mana, noting “the rest is in God’s hands.”

“I’m continuing my tour as I promised,” she said. “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.”

Jackson’s Unbreakable World Tour had been postponed in 2016 with the singer citing her desire to start a family.

“I want to thank you guys for your patience, for all of your support throughout the years,” she continued in the video. “Thank you so much. I’m so excited, I cannot wait to see you onstage Sept. 7.”
