Jackson back onstage

Janet Jackson has beaten her health scare and will be back onstage this weekend, according to bosses of her Rock Witchu tour.

The superstar has cancelled a string of gigs across the US because of a mystery illness that hospitalised her in Montreal, Canada on September 29.

She is fighting fit and back on the road now however, according to heads of promoter Live Nation - who insist her first performance back will be on Saturday in Uncasville, Connecticut.

A statement from Live Nation reads: "Janet, who has been under her doctor's care and recuperating over the last week, is excited about getting back on the road and again being able to share with her fans what she feels is one of her best stage shows ever."

On Wednesday, the singer's brother Randy was forced to deny he had revealed Jackson is suffering from vertigo - after an imposter made the claims on a Michael Jackson fansite.
