There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

Well this is good news!
After fans were up in arms the last few days, fearful they weren't going to get refunds after Janet Jackson announced the postponement of her North American tour to start a family, we finally have good news to report!
According to Live Nation, which was handling the tour, there will be an option for fans to get their money back!
After massive outcry over the delay, the company released an official statement Friday, saying:
Janet Jackson may be happy, but her fans are most definitely not!
As we previously reported, the Rhythm Nation singer pleasantly shocked us when she announced that she was putting her Unbreakable World Tour on pause in order to start a family.
However, it's since been reported that the A-lister isn't planning on refunding her loyal followers for the tickets they purchased for the highly talked about tour. LiveNation has since defended that the concerts aren't (as of right now) cancelled JUST rescheduled/postponed.
A rep added:
Has she learned nothing from Justin Bieber?!
That is, until we remembered that meant cancelling all of her Unbreakable World Tour concerts!
The tour accompanying her 11th studio album of the same name didn't get off to a great start, so we're not too surprised that she just canned the thing entirely… except now we're hearing she's not even offering refunds to fans who purchased tickets!
Apparently, Janet's team hasn't decided if the tour is actually cancelled or just postponed, and fans would only get their money back if the shows were cancelled entirely, not just rescheduled.
Basically, her fans have already paid for tickets they won't be able to use for at least nine months at the bare minimum!
Call her Miss Jackson, because this is a nasty thing to do to fans!
Did U plan on seeing Janet's Unbreakable World Tour this year??

It was only a few days after the European concert news that Janet announced she was going to scrap even MORE shows!
While several people speculated that the reason for the cancelations might have to do with bad ticket sales, or her surgery, it seems it might actually be something a whole lot cuter — starting a family with her husband Wissam Al Mana!
The Rhythm Nation singer took to Twitter to share a video (below) announcing the news to her fans saying:
Are you ready for this?!
The song, which sampled Curtis Mayfield's 1972 song Superfly, ended up peaking at number 58 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
But if it the song played out the way it was originally plans, who knows how popular it could have been!
That's because back when the song dropped producer Dorian Moore revealed that the duet was originally offered to Britney Spears instead of Aguilera but she passed because her label Jive deemed the track too "urban." Not only that but Janet Jackson was also considered!
While it's been 12 years since the song dropped, thanks to Singapore's Gold 905 radio station the world is blessed with a 30 second clip of Spears singing Nelly's song!
Ch-ch-check out the AH-Mazing clip of Britney singing Tilt Ya Head Back (below)!
Janet Jackson, are you okay?!
While we're not sure what exactly is going on with the singer, some sources have suggested bad ticket sales to blame. Others speculate it has to do with her recent throat surgery.
Either way, we hope J.J. gets back on track soon.
Take a look at cancelled tour dates (below)!
Well, "Unbreakable" seems like a poor choice right about now…
Janet Jackson hasn't had the easiest last few months, and it seems like things are only getting worse.
That's because after postponing most of the North American leg of her Unbreakable World Tour, we're now hearing that she's straight up cancelling four upcoming shows in the UK.
While the 49-year-old has denied rumors that cancer was the reason for the original date changes, her shows set for the end of March and beginning of April have been completely shafted due to "scheduling conflicts."
Ticketmaster confirmed the cancellations in Birmingham, London, Glasow, and Manchester in an email to fans Tuesday morning, saying:
