Janet Jackson says she doesn’t have cancer, despite rumors she’s suffering from throat cancer.
The singer addressed the unfounded rumor on Wednesday night, December 6, issuing a statement via a video on Twitter that read, “The rumors are untrue. I do not have cancer. I am recovering.”
According to The National Enquirer, Jackson is in a “deadly cancer crisis.” The magazine further alleged that she’s “facing a life-and-death health crisis.” “Doctors found a growth on Janet’s vocal cords,” an unnamed source is quoted as saying in the Enquirer article, which notes that it could be “cancerous.”
The tabloid’s story explains how Jackson has had to postpone concerts after needing some surgery. On Christmas Eve, the music icon announced on Twitter that because of an undisclosed ailment, she was “forced to postpone the Unbreakable Tour until the spring.”
However, in her video statement on Wednesday, which was prefaced with the words, “From my lips,” Jackson informed her fans that she will still perform the concerts she had scheduled in Europe and “the postponed shows will be rescheduled.”
