A "heartsick and devastated" Jennifer Lopez canceled her upcoming summer tour to spend more time with her "children, family and close friends," Live Nation announced Friday.

Lopez released a statement to her fans on her OntheJLo apologizing for deciding to pull the plug on her tour weeks before it was set to kick off.

"I am completely heartsick and devastated about letting you down," she wrote. "Please know that I wouldn't do this if I didn't feel that it was absolutely necessary."

She continued: "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…"
