Jennifer Lopez cancels US dates of This Is Me... Live tour

Jennifer Lopez has cancelled her This Is Me... Live tour dates in the US.

On Friday, Live Nation announced the 2024 summer tour was cancelled, saying: "Jennifer is taking time off to be with her children, family and close friends."

The singer addressed fans via her On the JLo newsletter, writing: "I am completely heartsick and devastated about letting you down.

"Please know that I wouldn't do this if I didn't feel that it was absolutely necessary.

"I promise I will make it up to you, and we will all be together again. I love you all so much. Until next time."

It comes amid speculation over her marriage with Ben Affleck and rumours of poor ticket sales.

The tour was initially in support of her ninth studio album This Is Me... Now and was set to start in Orlando, Florida on 26 June.

The tour was to be her first in five years, and the album is her first solo album in a decade.

"This Is Me... Now" was released earlier this year, 20 years after her hit album, "This Is Me... Then."

Live Nation reassured fans that they will be automatically refunded.
