Janet Jackson: I don't have cancer

Janet Jackson is not suffering from cancer.

The 49-year-old has been rumoured to be undergoing tests for the disease after doctors discovered a tumour on her vocal cords while prepping her for surgery.

However, Janet took to the Internet on Wednesday night (06.01.16) to set the record straight, and insisted the postponement of the next leg of her 'Unbreakable World Tour' is not to do with having cancer.

Janet shared a video on Twitter, in which she reads the message: "Remember... believe it when you hear it from my lips. The rumours are untrue. I do not have cancer. I'm recovering. My doctors have approved my concerts as scheduled in Europe, and as I promised, the postponed shows will be rescheduled. Thank you for your prayers and love."

Janet did not go into further details about her condition, but reassured her fans that she's "recovering".

In announcing the postponement of the tour last year, Janet - who is married to Wissam Al Mana - appealed to her fans for prayers.

She said on her website: "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.

"Please pray for me, my family and our entire company during this difficult time ...There will be no further comment."
