Janet Jackson broke down in tears while she was performing her 1997 song “What About” during her concert in Houston last weekend, The Daily Mail Online reported. It was a joyous and energetic show as part of her “State of the World” tour, but things went dramatic in the middle of the program.

The concert was held at the Toyota Center in Houston. After singing “What About,” Jackson covered her face with her hands and cried in tears for a few moments. The Daily Mail Online said she stood up and said, “This is me.”

Janet held her concert amid some personal issues that she is currently facing. The 51-year-old singer is presently in the process of divorcing her estranged husband Wissam Al Mana, a business mogul from the Middle East.

Jackson has been with Al Mana for several years before they split in April 2017, the report added.

The two had a son named Eissa who was born in December 2016. Jackson went on a maternity leave to spend time with her family before resuming her concert tour.

Alleged verbal abuse

The song “What About” is generally about domestic violence. The lyrics read, “What about all the [things] you’ve done to me? What about the times you hit my face? What about the times you kept on when I said no more, please?”

New details revealed on People stated that Jackson allegedly suffered “verbal abuse” during her marriage with the business mogul. Her elder brother Randy Jackson exclusively spoke with People and claimed that his sister “felt like a prisoner in her own home” during her stay with her estranged husband.
