Last month Janet Jackson announced that she would be postponing her Unbreakable World Tour. The reason was unknown but now we've got some answers--it's due to health. 

Radar Online goes as far as to report that the singer has already undergone vocal surgery. An unnnamed source allegedly told the pub, "Doctors found a growth on Janet’s vocal cords that could be serious. It’s a medical condition that has to be taken care of immediately." Scary stuff!

Jackson shared the following note in an Instagram caption:

"Hey you guys… Happy Holidays to each and every one of you. I need you to know, I learned today, from my doctors that I must have surgery soon. It breaks my heart to tell you that I am forced to postpone the Unbreakable Tour until the spring. Every date will be rescheduled. Please hold on to your tickets. They will be honored in a special way when the new schedule is announced. Please pray for me, my family and our entire company during this difficult time. There will be no further comment. I love you all so much and am ever grateful for your understanding and your love. Gon’ b alright."
