Janet Jackson & Businessman Wissam Al Mana Announce They’re Married


Janet Jackson and billionaire businessman Wissam Al Mana are married.  In fact, they’ve been husband and wife since last year, the couple confirms in a statement to Entertainment Tonight.

The pair say they tied the knot in a “quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony,” not the over-the-top affair that gossip sites reported would take place.  The couple added in their statement that “rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true.”  Word had it that wealthy Wissam was planning to splash out millions on a lavish ceremony, even flying Janet’s large family to Qatar aboard private jets.

Instead, Janet and Wissam explained that they’re using their money to do good for others.  “Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favorite children’s charities,” they said.

For now, the Janet and Wissam ask that their “privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy.”  Closing their note, they write, “With love, Wissam and Janet.”

This is marriage number three for Janet, whose union with fellow singer James DeBarge was annulled in 1985.  In 1991, she married dancer, songwriter and director Rene Elizondo Jr., but they kept their relationship a secret until their divorce in 2000.
