NEW YORK — Janet Jackson is delaying her “Unbreakable” tour, saying she and her husband are planning their family and that she is under doctor’s orders to rest.

The 49-year-old singer announced in a clip on her Twitter account Wednesday that there has been a “sudden change” to the second leg of her tour, which started in August.

She didn’t say she was pregnant, only that she “has to rest up; doctor’s orders.” Jackson said she has not forgotten about her fans and would continue the tour as soon as she possibly can.

In the one-minute, 46-second video clip, Jackson smiles and speaks directly to her fans. She asks that they understand that it’s important that she “does this now,” and thanked them for their love and loyalty.

She went on to thank her dancers, her band and her crew. She said couldn’t wait to get started again.
