In order to support her family at the Michael Jackson involuntary manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, Janet Jackson has been forced to reschedule the remainder of her Australian tour dates.

In a statement to the Associated Press, Janet explained her decision to cancel her Number Ones tour dates in Melbourne on Wednesday (Oct. 26), Thursday (Oct. 27) and Saturday (Oc.t 29), so that she can stand with her family at Murray’s trial.

“When I planned these shows, the schedule in California was completely different. After talking with my family last night, I decided we must be together right now,” the ‘Together Again’ singer said. “This saddens me in so many ways.”

Murray is currently on trial in Los Angeles, and has been accused of involuntary manslaughter for his alleged negligence in the care of Janet’s brother, Michael Jackson, who died in 2009, due to an overdose of the powerful anesthetic Propofol. Murray has pleaded not guilty, and faces up to four years in prison if convicted.

Janet will be returning to Australia to make up for her canceled dates with one show at Rod Laver Arena on Nov. 3.
