Janet Jackson’s scheduled Rock Witchu tour stop in Boston tonight has been cancelled in the wake of her reported sudden illness.
The singer was hospitalized for two hours late Monday after falling ill just hours before she was scheduled to perform at the Bell Centre in Montreal. A statement released by W&W Public Relations said she “got suddenly ill” during sound check.
“I can confirm that Janet Jackson was a patient at the Royal Victoria hospital yesterday evening. She was released after two hours,” a hospital spokeswoman told AFP, without giving further details.
The Bell Centre concert will be rescheduled to a later date, show promoter Gillett Entertainment said in a statement.
While Janet was dealing with her illness Monday night, TMZ.com reported that her boyfriend, music mogul Jermaine Dupri, was posted up at Patron’s Music In Motion Tour Party at Marquee in New York City.
“Spies inside tell us he partied it up with friends, caught a T.I. performance, and didn’t leave until 1:30 a.m.,” the Web site reported.
