American Hip-hop icon Jennifer Lopez has canceled her "This Is Me… Live" summer tour to spend more time with her family and is “heartsick” over the decision, the singer announced on Friday.

“Representatives for [tour promoter] Live Nation announced today that the Jennifer Lopez US Summer 2024 Tour ‘THIS IS ME…LIVE’ is canceled, citing … ‘Jennifer is taking time off to be with her children, family and close friends,'” the singer told to fans in a newsletter.

“For those who purchased through Ticketmaster, tickets will automatically be refunded – there is nothing further fans need to do. For those who purchased via third-party resale sites such as SeatGeek, StubHub, VividSeats, etc. – please reach out to your point purchase for more details,” the announcement reads.

It continues: “A Special Message to My JLovers OnTheJLo:

“I am completely heartsick and devastated about letting you down.

“Please know that I wouldn’t do this if I didn’t feel that it was absolutely necessary. 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…”

The announcement does not come as a total surprise, as the tour has been beset with reports of poor ticket sales and many unsold seats on ticketing websites.

Various media outlets reported that the need for family time was necessary amid reports that she and her husband Ben Affleck are splitting.

Sources close to Lopez affirmed that the tour was not being canceled due to poor ticket sales, despite the reports and seating charts, and pointed to strong sales in such markets as Newark, Orlando, Miami, Chicago, Anaheim, and Toronto. However, seating charts for multiple other dates showed very poor sales.

After canceling seven dates of the tour — her first North American jaunt in five years — in April Lopez quietly renamed it to broaden its scope, changing it from “This Is Me… Now” to “This Is Me… Live | The Greatest Hits.”

Lopez announced the trek in February to coincide with the release of her latest album “This Is Me… Now” and its accompanying two films, which celebrated her reunion with Affleck. But she quietly canceled some of its dates last month in cities like Cleveland and Nashville, likely due to poor sales. The rebrand suggested a pivot from a tour focusing on the new album’s songs to one spanning her discography, a move that was presumably intended to entice listeners who didn’t connect with her latest material.
