Janet Jackson has split from her multi-millionaire husband, Qatari business Tycoon, Wissam Al Mana, just months after giving birth to her first child at the age of 50, Daily Mail reports. Janet Jackson wed her husband in 2012 in a glamourous, but quiet wedding and in Jan 2017, their first child, Eissa, a son, was born.
There were rumours of a split within days of her son’s birth, when she was seen in public without a wedding ring but it was dismissed as just a rumour.
According to Daily Mail, a source close to the Pop star, revealed Friday night:
‘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.’
Last week, a leading entertainment website claimed her soon-to-be ex-husband, Al Mana had helped Jackson settle down as she traded fame for a role as a devoted mother and wife.
Divorce settlement could be complex and costly as 42-year-old Al Mana, CEO of the multinational Al Mana business conglomerate, is estimated to have a fortune of around £800million – at least four times Ms Jackson’s net worth.
The singer was briefly married to singer James DeBarge in 1984 but the pair split the following year and the marriage was later annulled. Her second husband was Mexican back-up dancer Rene Elizondo.
