Janet Jackson Pauses Tour to Care for Dad

In the midst of Janet Jackson making her musical comeback with the hot single “No Sleeep,” receiving the BET Icon Award, and being on the cusp of a world tour, the pop entertainer is putting it all on pause due to the recent illness of her father, Joe Jackson.

Jackson suffered a stroke while visiting Brazil, Sunday. He was later admitted to a Brazilian hospital where he is currently in the intensive care unit.

Janet’s tour was initially scheduled to kick off August 31, however, under unforeseen circumstances, she plans to be by her father’s side until he is under a more stable condition.

We wish the best for the Jackson clan and hope for a speedy recovery during this difficult time.
