Janet Jackson Releases A Statement – “I Do Not Have Cancer”

On Christmas Eve, Janet Jackson stated she would not be making any additional comments regarding her health after she abruptly postponed her “Unbreakable” tour to undergo surgery.

But, it appears the media has forced her hand after reports of the music icon being tested for throat cancer flooded the internet.

In a message on her official Facebook page, her team wrote:

It was Janet’s wish not to make any further comments about her health, however, because of the great concern from around the world, Janet will be releasing a personal message shortly.

Taking to social media, Janet Jackson shut down all of the rumors writing, “The rumors are untrue. I do not have cancer. I am recovering. My doctors have approved my concerts as scheduled in Europe, and as I promised, the postponed shows will be rescheduled.”
