Cool J pulls out of Jackson tour

LL Cool J
The star is pulling out due to scheduling conflicts

Rapper LL Cool J has dropped out as the opening act for Janet Jackson's current tour, his publicists have announced.

The star is pulling out of the Rock Witchu tour because of unnamed scheduling conflicts.

It is the latest setback on Jackson's tour, her first North American outing in seven years.

The 42-year-old singer was forced to reschedule a string of gigs earlier this month because of a bout of migraine-associated vertigo.

Jackson is next due to perform in Michigan on Tuesday and in New York in Saturday.

She is also expected to announce extra dates to the tour.

No announcement has been made as to who will replace LL Cool J as the opening act.
