Jennifer Lopez Cancels Tour To Spend More Time With Family

Jennifer Lopez has called off her “This Is Me… Live” tour to spend more time with her family and friends.

On Friday, May 31, Live Nation announced that the “This Is Me… Live” tour would not proceed, as the singer is prioritizing time with her children, family, and close friends.

Lopez addressed her fans directly on her OntheJLo website, expressing her difficulty in making this decision.

“I am completely heartsick and devastated about letting you down. Please know that I wouldn’t do this if I didn’t feel it was absolutely necessary,” wrote 54-year-old Lopez.

She added, “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…”

Initially scheduled from June to August, the tour was meant to promote her new album, “This Is Me…Now,” released in February of this year.

Ticketmaster will automatically refund fans who purchased tickets, while those who bought through third-party resale sites must contact the point of sale for further information.

Besides spending quality time with loved ones, Lopez is also celebrating her new Netflix film “Atlas,” which premiered on May 24 and quickly topped the charts in 55 countries.

This announcement aligns with reports of marital difficulties between Lopez and her husband, Ben Affleck. Despite recent sightings of the couple together, they are reportedly living apart in Los Angeles due to strains in their marriage.

Lopez has been busy with preparations for the now-canceled tour and promotions for “Atlas,” while Affleck has been engaged in filming “The Accountant 2.” The couple, who reconnected in 2021 and married in 2022, originally dated in the early 2000s.

Earlier this month, Lopez was seen posing in front of a Netflix billboard in Los Angeles, warning viewers not to mess with her.

In collaboration with Netflix, Lopez shared a video clip on Instagram that began with her inside a car.

“So a bunch of people were messaging me yesterday telling me about this billboard that Netflix put up for ‘Atlas,’” Lopez explained in the video. “So I wanted to go see it for myself.”

In an interview with the American weekly magazine PEOPLE, Lopez discussed the parallels and differences between herself and her character in the movie.

“We are so different because she doesn’t wear any of her emotions,” she said. “She’s so closed off, and I am too emotional sometimes.”

“But at the same time, we are both very strong and sure of what they feel,” Lopez continued. “At times, she was very sure. She was like, ‘This is what’s happening, please listen to me. Please tell me.’ And felt very misunderstood at times. I can also relate to that a bit.”
