In a YouTube clip released to fans on her official page, Janet Jackson confirmed her split from husband, Wissam Al Mana, after almost five years of marriage.
She said: “I just want to keep it real with you guys for a second. Yes, I separated from my husband, we are in court and the rest is in God’s hands.”
The singer also spoke of her love for her new baby son and expressed her gratitude that he is happy and healthy.
She said: “I thank God for him. He is so healthy, so beautiful, so sweet, so loving. Such a healthy baby.”
Jackson also revealed plans to hit the road in September for her State of the World tour – which will begin in Lafayette, Louisiana on 7 September and end in Atlanta, Georgia, on 17 December. She further explained that the title of the tour has nothing to do with policits but rather that “It’s about people, the world, relationships and just… love.”
She further expressed an appreciation of her fans, adding “I want to thank you guys, for your patience, for all of your support throughout the years. I cannot wait to see you on stage September 7.”
The singer had previously postponed her Unbreakable tour last year to focus on her pregnancy. She gave birth to her first child, son Eissa Al Mana, on January 3.
