Jennifer Lopez has canceled her This Is Me… Live summer tour to spend more time with her family.

Live Nation made the announcement on Friday, May 31.

“Jennifer is taking time off to be with her children, family and close friends,” the company said in a statement.

The statement added that tickets purchased through Ticketmaster will automatically be refunded. Fans who bought tickets through third-party resale sites including SeatGeek, StubHub and VividSeats should reach out to their point of purchase.

Lopez said she’s disappointed the tour won’t be moving forward.

“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” she said on her onthejlo.com website. “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…”

The bad news comes amid reports of poor ticket sales and articles in celebrity news outlets saying Lopez and husband Ben Affleck are headed toward divorce.

Earlier this week, a source told the New York Post Lopez is also at risk of losing her upcoming $90 million Las Vegas residency as interest in the actress, singer and dancer’s music fades.

“Casino executives have lately grown skittish over abysmal ticket sales for her first tour in five years following the release of her This is Me … Now album in February,” the outlet quoted a source as saying.

Lopez’s This Is Me… Live tour was scheduled to kick off in Orlando on June 26 and run through Aug. 31.

In February, Lopez released her This Is Me… Now studio album and accompanying Amazon movie to mixed reviews. The film was described as “an intimate, fantastical and narrative-driven reflection of her personal journey of self-healing and self-love.”
