Janet Jackson is ending her 5-year marriage to billionaire business Wissam Al Mana, according to a new report from Page Six.
The site is offering two different explanations for the couple’s split. One source claims that both Jackson and Al Mana decided to end things amicably, while another source believes Wissam’s “controlling” nature during Janet’s pregnancy fueled their demise.
“She thought he had become too controlling during the pregnancy and she had already allowed him to dictate her appearance and even the way she performed at concerts,” a source, who works closely with the pair explained.
The site also claims that despite Janet’s willingness to compromise for a small wedding, refusal to wear “skin-revealing” outfits while performing and moving to London to live under “strict” Muslim traditions, Al Mana’s lack of concern for Jackson’s mother, who had made claims of elder abuse by one of her grandchildren fueled the superstar’s decision to separate.
Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana quietly wed in 2012 and welcomed their son Eissa Al Mana on January 3, 2017.
Official deets surrounding the separation and/or divorce have yet to be released.
