Janet Jackson's STATE OF THE WORLD Tour Stops in Houston

Jackson and her businessman husband, Wissam Al Mana, split in April of this year, following five years of marriage.

The life-long star broke down in tears while performing her 1997 song, "What About", telling fans through tears, "This is me". The lyrics to the emotional number - which is about domestic violence and infidelity - include: "What about all the s**t you've done to me?"

Jackson performed hits including "Nasty", "All For You", "Miss You Much", and "Pleasure Principle".

Janet Jackson says she is bringing music and more to the people of Houston Friday night. However, she doesn't specifically name him in her emotional rendition. She is now in the process of divorcing his father, Wissam Al Mana, her husband of five years.

In video footage posted online by fans, Janet bends over and covers her face as tears stream down her cheeks, before standing to face the crowd and stating, "This is me".

After the birth of son Eissa, however, the situation changed as the singer made an official announcement of her divorce and that the long due Unbreakable tour will now be the State of the World Tour. After her show, Toyota Centre tweeted that the "All for You" singer will donate her collections from the show to the relief efforts of the Hurricane. "My husband and I are planning our family, so I'm going to have to delay the tour". Until her show in Louisiana Thursday, Jackson last performed the song live in 1999. The 51-year-old mother, who welcomed her first child in January this year, is back performing on stage.
