LL Cool J pulls out of US tour with Janet Jackson

It's another setback for the pop star's troubled jaunt

LL Cool J has announced that he is withdrawing from Janet Jackson‘s ‘Rock Witchu’ tour.

The rap star said in a statement that he is bowing out of the North American jaunt due to undisclosed “scheduling conflicts,” reports the Associated Press.

This is just one of many troubles that have plagued Jackson‘s first US tour in seven years. The pop star was forced to cancel several shows last month due to migraine-associated vertigo for which she was hospitalised, as previously reported.

The singer was forced to reschedule several shows, including one at New York’s Madison Square Garden, which is now set for November 1.
