Janet Jackson has announced that she is postponing her current Australian tour and will return at a later date to perform the rest of the scheduled shows.
The singer has made the decision to return to LA to be with the rest of her family throughout the remainder of the trial of her late brother Michael's doctor.
In a statement the singer said:
"When I planned these shows, the schedule in California was completely different.
"After talking with my family last night, I decided we must be together right now... This saddens me in so many ways."
Janet has thanked her many fans for their encouragement and support.
