Janet Jackson has confirmed a rumored split with her husband and says she plans to resume the world tour she called off more than a year ago during her pregnancy with her son.

Jackson says in a video posted on Twitter that she has separated from husband Wissam Al Mana. She says, “We are in court and the rest is in God’s hands.”

The couple’s son was born in January.

The 50-year-old singer also has announced a return to the road on Sept. 7, 18 months after postponing her “Unbreakable” tour. She didn’t say where the performance will take place.

Jackson is changing the name of the tour to “State of the World.”
