WATCH: Janet Jackson opens up about her divorce


Janet Jackson posted a countdown timer on her website that had everyone in a frenzy.

The 50-year-old singer and recent mother has teased her fans that she is about to either announce her new album or reschedule her Unbreakable World Tour dates, which she postponed in order to take care of her child.

Janet split from her husband, Wissam Al Mana, last month, to everyone’s surprise, and is now said to be focusing all of her energy on writing new “positive” uplifting music about becoming a mother to her four-month-old son, Eissa Al Mana.

The pop singer is set to play the shows she postponed last year under a new run of dates named the ‘State Of The World Tour’ later this year.

It comes after Janet Jackson took to Instagram to share the first picture of her newborn son. Talk about cuteness overload!

Meanwhile, it was recently reported that Jackson is focusing all her attention on Eissa following the split. A source said: “Jackson is ecstatic. She’s so happy with her baby, and that’s all she is focused on.”

The pair are said to be committed to co-parenting their son despite going their separate ways. Another insider shared at the time the relationship between Jackson and Al Mana was not working and the couple decided to go their separate ways

“They’re both busy people but determined to be good parents, even if they’re apart. It’s amicable and Eissa will stay with his mother, who is basing herself in London,” added the insider.
