Here’s an UPDATE to our Janet Jackson story that we posted earlier:

*Despite rumors to the contrary, Janet Jackson says she doesn’t have cancer, but she isn’t specifying the illness that interfered with a concert tour.

On her Twitter account Wednesday, Jackson posted a two-minute clip from her song “The Great Forever,” followed by a personal message in which she said she’s recovering but offered no further details. She said her doctors have approved her concerts as scheduled in Europe.

The rumors are untrue. I do not have cancer. I’m recovering,” she posted, an apparent response to online reports that she was suffering from throat cancer.


*According to “Extra,” Janet Jackson‘s doctors have now cleared her to tour Europe.

In fact, Janet’s resumption of her “Unbreakable world tour starting March 30 comes in the wake of postponing dates with an ominous sounding message to fans that said:

“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.”

As we reported, doctors actually found a growth on the 49-year-old performer’s vocal cords during surgery. Meanwhile, her husband, Muslim billionaire Wissam Al Mana, is by her side.
