Janet Jackson is reportedly getting over her split from estranged husband Wissam Al Mana by focusing her attention to writing a new album and rescheduling her 75 axed tour dates.

The 50-year-old singer reportedly split from her estranged husband Wissam Al Mana earlier this month, and is now said to be focusing all of her energy on writing new "positive" uplifting music about becoming a mother to the estranged couple's three-month-old son, Eissa Al Mana.

The 'Scream' hitmaker is also going to play the shows she postponed to become a mother last year under a new run of dates named the 'State Of The World' tour, which will hit North America later this year.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Having a baby has upped her desire to release positive music and she wants her new songs to be a celebration of life, love and motherhood.

"She plans to get back on tour in North America in October, followed by a brand new album.

"Last year's incomplete 'Unbreakable World Tour' is being revamped to become the 'State Of The World Tour' and she is already scheduling summer rehearsals."

It comes after Wissam, 42 - who Janet wed in 2012 - penned an emotional message to the pop star amidst claims they have separated.

Alongside a black and white photo of the pop star, he wrote: "To the most beautiful person in the world, thank you for your divine love, your eternal support and for being my best friend. I love you so much, inshallah we will be together in the Great Forever x (sic)"

It comes after Janet took to her website on Saturday to share the first picture of her newborn son.

She captioned it: "My baby and me after nap time."

Meanwhile, it was recently reported that Janet is focusing all her attention on Eissa following the split.

A source said: "Janet is ecstatic. She's so happy with her baby and that's all she is focused on."

The pair are said to be committed to co-parenting their son despite going their separate ways.

An insider shared at the time: "Sadly, Janet and Wissam have decided that it wasn't working and to go their separate ways.

"They're both busy people but determined to be good parents, even if they're apart. It's amicable and Eissa will stay with his mother, who is basing herself in London."
