Janet Jackson was in the midst of filming Tyler Perry's "Why Did I Get Married Too?," when Michael Jackson tragically passed away. The singer/actress said the director and the movie's entire team were "very supportive" in her time of need.

"[The cast and crew] were very supportive, especially Tyler," Janet told NBC's "Today" show co-host Meredith Vieira on Monday morning.

In fact, Janet said the director was one of the first people to contact her following her brother's death.

"One of the first calls that I got was from Tyler," she continued. "He was just so there for me in every way, so loving and so giving."

When asked about the rest of the Jackson family, Janet said, "they're very well."

Despite Janet's tumultuous year, the 43-year-old said she's very happy with where she's at in her life.

"[I'm] in a very wonderful space," she explained. "Still growing… a work in progress still."

"Why Did I Get Married Too?" opens in theaters on April 2.
