Via People Magazine... Janet has been released!
'“Yesterday evening she was checked into the Royal Victoria Hospital and left a couple of hours later,” Rebecca Burns, the spokeswoman for the McGill University Health Centre, which operates the hospital, said.'
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Singer Janet Jackson was rushed to a hospital with an unexplained illness minutes before a performance in Montreal on Monday night.
Jackson's publicists said in a statement the singer "got suddenly ill during her sound check ... and had to be rushed to the hospital just before showtime."
The statement said Jackson, 42, was being monitored in the hospital, but her publicists were unable to say on Tuesday whether she had been released and gave no further information about her illness.
Jackson, currently on her Rock Witchu tour, was making her first appearance in Montreal in seven years.
The show was cancelled about five minutes before rapper LL Cool J was to begin his opening act, and it was not clear whether Jackson's next scheduled date, in Boston on Wednesday, would go ahead.
Last week, Jackson called off a concert in Detroit due to "production restraints," local media said.
Jackson was one of the best-selling female recording artists of the late 1980s and 1990s with hit albums that include "Control" and "Rhythm Nation 1814."
She is the youngest of nine siblings in the Jackson family of singers that produced the 1970s pop group the Jackson 5 and self-styled "King of Pop" Michael Jackson.
