Jennifer Lopez is taking some time off from her hit Las Vegas residency show in the wake of Sunday’s horrific and deadly shooting.
The 48-year-old singer is has postponed performances for Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday of Jennifer Lopez: All I Have, which plays at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino — apologizing to ticket holders for the inconvenience.
“Jennifer is heartbroken that such a senseless tragedy occurred,” a rep for the star said in a statement. “Her thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.”
Tickets for Lopez’s postponed shows will be rescheduled.
At least 59 people were killed and 527 more injured in Sunday’s shooting — where 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, of Mesquite, Nevada, opened fire on a crowd of more than 22,000 from his 32nd-floor hotel room at the nearby Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

Authorities in Las Vegas are still searching for the gunman’s motive. When law enforcement officials entered Paddock’s room, they found him dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. There is no connection between the shooting and international terrorism, according to the FBI.
Since the tragedy, Lopez has been using her social media to raise support for blood donation.
“I ❤️ Las Vegas,” Lopez wrote on Instagram Monday. “Feeling so broken this morning.”
