Janet Jackson Hospitalized Before Montreal Concert

By  | 

NEW YORK - A representative for Janet Jackson says the singer was hospitalized in Montreal after falling ill shortly before a concert.

According to a statement released by W&W Public Relations, Jackson canceled Monday's concert after she "got suddenly ill" during her sound check and had to be rushed to the hospital just before show time.

The statement says Jackson hopes to reschedule the show. No further information was given about her illness.

A phone call placed to W&W after hours went unanswered, and a representative did not immediately return an e-mail seeking more information.

Jackson, 42, is on a North American tour.
