The 49-year-old posted a message on her website and social media sites announcing all future tour dates had been postponed until spring and no new date was announced.
The singer’s statement asked for prayers of support and said no further details on her medical condition would be revealed.
Jackson had been next scheduled to perform on January 9 in Denver.
Her Unbreakable tour has been the Top 20 global concert tour listing compiled by Pollstar.
The entertainer’s catalogue of hits dates back to the mid-1980s.
Among her best known numbers are What Have You Done for Me Lately, That’s the Way Love Goes and All for You.
