According to her publicist, 42 year old Janet Jackson as been hositalized after falling ill shortly before a concert in Montreal, Canada.
Paparazzi sources on the scene say they witnessed an ambulance rushing her to the nearest hospital around 6 pm last night. Unconfirmed reports suggest that she wasn’t well enough to perform. At about 9:30 pm, a black limo was seen bringing Ms. Jackson back to her tour bus. They then began moving to the next venue. Let’s hope it was nothing serious!
Her publicist released an official statement minutes ago (shortly before midnight EST) saying Janet had been hospitalized after falling ill shortly before the concert. She “got suddenly ill” during her sound check and had to be rushed to the hospital just before show time.
The statement says Jackson was being monitored at the hospital and hopes to reschedule the show. No further information was given about her condition.
According to Black Voices, Janet missed an appearance on ‘Saturday Night Live’ earlier this year due to complications with bronchitis.
However, a source close to Janet’s long-time boyfriend Jermaine Dupri, whom just recently celebrated his 36th birthday, revealed to ‘People’ magazine that the entertainer has complained of exhaustion in the past.
“A 42-year-old body can’t handle what a 22-year-old body can,” says the source. “I can tell you that she’s definitely tired. It was probably exhaustion. She is doing back-to-back, three-hour shows, and her body isn’t the same as it used to be.”
Girl slow down and get well soon sweetie!
