And on Friday, Janet Jackson delivered as she visited the George R. Brown Center, which became a Red Cross location after the destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey.

According to KHOU.com, Janet was accompanied by her brother, Randy, and Houston Mayer Sylvester Turner as she toured the facility. "See u guys in 1 month!" "I was just so surprised, shocked that I didn't have a black out from being so excited". Now, I know there were rumours on whether we were going to do the show in Houston or whether we weren't going to do the show in Houston, and I'm here to tell you that we are going to do the show in Houston.


"We will come in early on the grounds that we needed to visit a portion of the safe houses", she said.

Jackson welcomed Eissa on January 3 with her now estranged husband Wissam Al Mana. Jackson broke her silence about the split in May.

The What Have You Done For Me Lately singer will be donating the show's proceeds to local flood relief charities, reports US Weekly.

She then officially confirmed her worst-kept secret: 'Yes, I separated from my husband.
