Janet Jackson Halts ‘Unbreakable World Tour’ Production To Be By Her Ailing Father’s Side

There's a slight possibility that Janet Jackson's upcoming 'Unbreakable Word' tour may get postponed. The music icon has cancelled production duties for the upcoming trek to be with her ailing father, who suffered a stroke on his 87th birthday on Saturday (Jul 25) in Brazil.

The 'No Sleeep' hitmaker flew to Sao Paulo, Brazil on Tuesday where her father, Joe Jackson, is hospitalized. An insider tells ET that the 49-year-old singer is expected to stay with her father until his condition is stable.

On Monday (27.07.15) the Grammy-award-winning musician took to his website to inform fans that he would ''be able to make a quick recovery and travel back home soon''.

He wrote: "To my family, friends, acquaintances and fans all over the world. I want to thank you all for your prayers, unwavering support and kind well wishes during these trying times," he wrote. "Through God's intervention the wonderful Doctors, Nurses and caretakers at the Albert Einstein Sao Paulo hospital have taken great care of me. God willing, I should be able to make a quick recovery and travel back home soon. Thank you all once again for your prayers and support."

Jackson's 'Unbreakable World Tour' is scheduled to start on Aug. 31 in Vancouver.
