Jennifer Lopez Cancels European Tour

Jennifer Lopez has apologised after cancelling her European album tour due to illness.

And she also called off a red carpet appearance in London at the charity premiere of her new movie, Shall We Dance?

A statement from Jen said: "I very much wanted to be in London today but unfortunately I'm not well. At the advice of my doctors I'm unable to travel.

Being sick has also caused me to cancel my European album tour. Please accept my sincerest apologies as I have to remain in Los Angeles."

The 35-year-old, who married third husband singer Marc Anthony in June last year, was scheduled to fly in to promote the film with co-star Richard Gere.

The movie, which opens on Friday, was panned by US critics when it opened there.

Lopez's statement added: "
This film was a labour of love for me and I want to thank everyone involved in bringing it to you, from the cast, to the film director, to the crew.

"My experience in making Shall We Dance has been nothing short of wonderful.

Thank you to everyone who purchased tickets to the charity premiere. Once again, I'm sorry I'm unable to be with you in London in person."
