Santa Barbara-based firm One Way Publicity is denying recent reports that Janet Jackson’s brother Randy said in an exclusive interview with a Michael Jackson fan site that her recent hospitalization was due to vertigo.
Jackson has canceled several shows on her Rock Witchu Tour after falling ill just hours before a show last Monday in Montreal. Her camp has yet to disclose the nature of the illness.
“Rumors started by the owner of a Michael Jackson fan site has stated that they had an exclusive interview with Randy Jackson, and during this interview he said that his sister Janet had canceled shows because she has an illness called ‘Vertigo,'” read an e-mail sent to ONR.
“Randy has not and will not speak publicly about the health of his sister, or her reasons for canceling any of her shows. This ‘interview’ never happened.”
