Singer Janet Jackson reportedly will no resume the production of her highly-anticipated tour “Unbreakable”, to stay by her father, Joe’s side until he is more stable.

Janet’s upcoming live shows may get postponed after Joe suffered a stroke last week, reported Entertainment Tonight.

On Monday, Joe thanked fans for their prayers and assured them he’s going to be okay.

“I want to thank you all for your prayers, unwavering support and kind well wishes during these trying times,” he said in a statement posted on his website.

Janet is scheduled to kick off her “Unbreakable” world tour on August 31 in Vancouver.

She is also expected to release her comeback album later this year. The record has so far been preceded by “No Sleeep”, which she recently reworked with J Cole.

A music video for the collaboration arrived last week.
