‘Gon' B Alright': Janet Jackson Slams Cancer Rumors, Promises to Reschedule ‘Unbreakable' Tour

After weeks of staying quiet, Janet Jackson is speaking out.

The singer announced in late December that she was forced to undergo surgery and postpone her entire "Unbreakable" tour, and now, she's giving fans a bit more insight into her recent health battle.

Jackson posted a new song on her Twitter account with the following lyrics:

"Remember…believe it when you hear it from my lips. The rumors are untrue. I do not have cancer. I'm recovering."

She continued, "My doctors have approved my concert as scheduled in Europe, and as I promised, the postponed shows will be rescheduled. Thank you for your prayers and love."

Less than one month ago, Jackson broke the news to her many, many fans, saying, "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," she said on social media.

"It breaks my heart to tell you that I am forced to postpone the Unbreakable Tour until the spring. Every date will be rescheduled. Please hold on to your ticket. They will be honored in a special way when the new schedule is announced."

Jackson continued, "Please pray for me, my family and our entire company during this difficult time. There will be no further comment. I love you all so much and am grateful for your understanding and your love. Gon' b alright."

The award-winning singer first kicked off her sold-out tour in Vancouver back in August, performing to a near-capacity crowd at Rogers Arena.

"Unbreakable" marks Jackson's 11th studio album and was released on Oct. 2—seven years since her last album, "Discipline."
