Janet Jackson was seen in public on Wednesday for the first time since her surgery.

The GRAMMY winner remained mum on her health as she brushed past photographers in London, but on Monday she sent out an uplifting tweet for fans.

"Hey you guys, I am preparing for my tour in Europe," she wrote. "Can't wait to see you! #Unbreakable."

The 49-year-old singer announced on Christmas Eve that she needed to have surgery that would force her to postpone her Unbreakable Tour until spring. The tour was originally scheduled to launch Jan. 9.

Following her announcement, reports claimed that the surgery was intended to remove a "tumor that could be cancerous." But Jackson quickly refuted those rumors in a message written at the end of a lyric music video, set to her song, "The Great Forever," from her 2015 album, Unbreakable.

"The rumors are untrue," read the text. "I do not have cancer. I'm recovering."
