Jennifer Lopez has released an emotional statement to her fans after scrapping her upcoming summer tour in order to 'spend more time with her children'.

The tour was scheduled to kick off on June 26 in Orlando, Florida, and conclude in Houston on Aug. 31, but less than a month before its debut, Live Nation confirmed that it had been cancelled.

Jennifer, 54, who is rumoured to be going through a tough spot with her husband of two years, Ben Affleck, issued her own message about the cancellation of the tour, as she said she was 'heartsick' and 'devastated'.

In the statement, released through her website, OntheJLo, Jennifer said: "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…"

An official statement given to MailOnline read: "Representatives for Live Nation announced today that the Jennifer Lopez US Summer 2024 Tour THIS IS ME...LIVE is cancelled.

"Jennifer is taking time off to be with her children, family and close friends," it was added.

Jennifer is mum to 16 year old twins, Max and Emme, whilst she plays the role of step-mother to Ben's children, Violet, 18, Fin, 15, and Samuel, 12.

Rumours have been swirling that Jennifer's marriage to actor Ben is in trouble, after they've only been seen together in public a handful of times over the past few months.

There has been talk that Ben has already moved out of their marital home and sources are claiming the couple were "headed for divorce".

An insider told InTouch Weekly: "The writing is on the wall - it's over. They're headed for a divorce - and for once, [Ben's] not to blame! They'll never stop loving each other, but she can't control him, and he can't change her. There's no way it could have lasted."

Recently, JLo added more fuel to the rumour fire by liking an Instagram post about unhealthy relationships and poor communication, reports The Mirror. The post was a series of slides explaining how "you cannot build a healthy relationship with somebody" who "lacks integrity and emotional safety".

Despite the rumours, the pair recently put on a united front as they attended the graduation party of Ben's 18 year old daughter, Violet. It came almost two weeks after they were last seen in public together.
