And now the singer has been forced to postpone her upcoming tour of Japan due to the global financial crisis. According to BBC News, Japanese concert promoter Kyodo Yokohama announced on Monday that Jackson would be postponing the five dates the singer had scheduled in Japan between February 14 and February 22 "due to the impact of [the] economic crisis."
Jackson, 42, had planned to hit such major Japanese cities as Nagoya, Osaka and Fukuoka on the world Rock Witchu outing, which was her first major tour in nearly seven years. According to reports, the tour will be rescheduled for later this year with new dates expected to be announced in March.
The announcement comes on the heels of the recent news that Jackson's longtime boyfriend, rapper/producer
Dupri also claimed in the interview that Reid was jealous of him because he felt the younger producer was more in tune with what's going on "in the streets, the Internet and all over the place."
