Janet Jackson And Husband Of 5 Years To Divorce 3 Months After Son Is Born

Singer Janet Jackson, 50 has split from her billionaire businessman husband Wissam Al Mana, 42. Al Mana is from Qatar, the couple have been living in London since they wed in 2012. Jackson postponed a world tour on the advice of her doctors when she learned she would be a first time mother at 50. She gave birth to the couple’s son Eissa Al Mana on January 3, 2017. There have been reports that Jackson converted to her husband’s Muslim religion when they wed, but Jackson has neither confirmed nor denied the reports. Since marrying and having a child the singer has kept a very low profile.

Her elderly mother Kathrine Jackson, matriarch of the famous Jackson family had been visiting her  daughter in London the last several months. This will be Jackson’s third divorce, she was previously married to dancer, Rene Elizondo and singer James DeBarge. The Daily Mail is reporting that Jackson plans to continue living in London with her son. Jackson told her fans in April that although she was very disappointed, she had to cancel her ‘Unbreakable’ tour.


She asked fans to understand that it wasn’t her wish to stop the tour but her doctor’s orders. She said as soon as she was physically able to resume the tour she would. She thanked her fans for their support now and in the past. Al Mana was born in Qatar but moved to London with his family when he was 2. He went to the United States when he was 18 and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business from George Washington University in Washington, D.C. He returned to London shortly after graduation and enrolled at the London School of Economics where he earned a masters degree in business.
