Jennifer Lopez cancels summer tour: 'I am completely heartsick'

Following some date cancellations and a rebranding, the singer has nixed this year's performances altogether.

Don't expect to see Jennifer Lopez on stage this summer, because the pop star has officially canceled her upcoming tour. In a statement on Friday, LiveNation said that Lopez is instead "taking time off to be with her children, family and close friends."

"I am completely heartsick and devastated about letting you down," Lopez wrote in a note to fans on her official website.

This Is Me...Now was released in February of this year, and was as inspired by her rekindled romance with husband Ben Affleck as 2002's This Is Me...Then was by their previous relationship. The new album was accompanied by an ambitious, self-funded, cameo-filled musical film called This Is Me...Now: A Love Story.

This summer's tour was supposed to be the final piece of the new work, but it faced some struggles. Back in March, multiple late-August tour dates were canceled. This inspired speculation that the cancellations were due to low ticket sales, though sources told Entertainment Weekly at the time that it was actually the result of a "logistical issue." Then, in April, the tour was rebranded around greatest hits from across Lopez's whole career rather than focusing primarily on the latest album.

There have also been rumors swirling that the marriage between Affleck and Lopez (the inspiration behind This Is Me...Now) was in trouble. Earlier this month, PEOPLE reported that the two have been living in separate residences and attending events like the Met Gala and The Roast of Tom Brady by themselves. However, the couple were photographed together on Thursday, May 30, as they attended events to celebrate the graduation of Affleck's daughter Violet.

When Lopez was recently asked about the state of their marriage while promoting her new Netflix film Atlas, she brushed aside the concerns. And in an interview with EW, her costar Sterling K. Brown said that Affleck helped Lopez on the movie: "Sometimes, the reactions that you got from her were because she was listening to her husband's voice."
