Hollywood, CA, United States (4E) – Janet Jackson is stirring rumors that she is pregnant as she said that she is halting her world tour due to planning her family.

According to her announcement, Jackson is halting the second leg of her “Unbreakable” world tour for the second time citing it is the doctor’s orders. Last December, she postponed her tour to recover from an unspecified injury.

In the video released on Twitter on Wednesday, Jackson shared, "I thought it was important that you be the first to know. My husband and I are planning our family, so I'm going to have to delay the tour. Please, if you can try and understand that it's important that I do this now. I have to rest up, doctor's orders. But I have not forgotten about you. I will continue the tour as soon as I possibly can."

It was unclear, however, if 49-year-old Jackson and her husband, 41-year-old Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana , are looking to start their family via traditional ways or through other means.

The singer continued to say that her fans made her tour enjoyable each and every night. The “BURNITUP !” singer also announced that all the dates for the second leg of the tour have been rescheduled except for one in Lexington, Kentucky as the venue of the concert was scheduled to undergo renovations. No word yet when the date for this particular concert will be rescheduled.

Back in January, Jackson shot down rumors claiming that the surgery she had last year was for cancer. She shared on Twitter that people should only believe the new when they hear it from her lips. She added, “The rumors are untrue. I do not have cancer. I'm recovering. My doctors have approved my concert as scheduled in Europe, and as I promised, the postponed shows will be rescheduled. Thank you for your prayers and love.”

In her latest video, Jackson also thanked her dancers, the band, and her entire crew noting that they were all so professional and talented. She added that she cannot wait for them to get started again.

She ended her video saying, “Once again, thank you again to all the fans for your love, your undying love, your loyalty. That means so much to me. You're truly appreciated. It's been a long journey and you guys have been there each and every step of the way and I really do appreciate that. Thank you so much. I will see you soon. I love you. Bye.”
