janetboyf Wissam Breaks Silence On Janet Jackson Romance

Despite making many a public show of affection, Janet Jackson and billionaire businessman Wissam Al Mana have remained tight-lipped about the nature of their relationship. That us until now.

Middle Eastern Al Mana recently opened up to VMAN magazine about his and Jackson’s status, his business affairs, and more. Certainly an interesting read.

His comments after the jump…

Via Just Jared:

On his relationship with Janet Jackson:

“I don’t date Janet Jackson. She is my girlfriend; there is a difference. She is a very special and talented woman who never ceases to amaze me.”

On his busy work schedule:

“I head the retail division [of the Qatar-based family empire, Al Mana Group]. I oversee new developments and I’m constantly working on interesting projects, one of them in design. I’m also pursuing an art project, and i’m involved in several charities.”

On working with Giorgio Armani:

“Mr. Armani is down-to-earth, very kind, and someone I admire for creating one of the largest luxury brands in the world from scratch.”

    Something about this relationship doesn’t stick to me, can’t quite put my finger on it though. His empire might eventually come in between, as well as her career, and it may clash. At least when she was with JD, though I didn’t quite like him either, they were in the same industry, and their relationship seemed more genuine. But I digress. We’ll see how this goes. Just felt like being opinionated for a minute.

    @Benjamin you’re a f****** idiot. We don’t know anything this relationship so there’s no need to feel “uneasy”. Why the f*** would his career and her’s clash? Are you stupid? The man is a billionaire and runs a business. She’s a performer. I don’t see how that would clash. If you knew anything about Janet and JD’s past relationship you would know they were so far apart because of his job and her’s. So if anything her last relationship had it’s ups and downs due to her and his career. TBH, there was nothing geniune about Janet and JD’s relationship. It was a hoax. This guy is already stepping forward and saying “Hey that’s my girlfriend” and he seems like a gentleman.

    Janet, has never been able to pick a good man she likes the superficial type and she always end up getting used. I love Janet, but she needs to get a grip.

    “I don’t date Janet Jackson. She is my girlfriend; there is a difference. She is a very special and talented woman who never ceases to amaze me.”

    For those who don’t know what a girlfriend is: Girlfriend (About this sound pronunciation (help·info)) is a term that can refer to either a female partner in a non-marital romantic relationship or a female non-romantic friend that is closer than other friends.[1]

    This term is often used loosely, and there is some debate over what exactly constitutes a girlfriend. In western society, it is generally agreed that “girlfriend” status begins when two people agree to date. Getting a girl to agree to such an arrangement is considered a milestone for young males, and is often seen as a sign of status, based on the perception of the girl amongst the male’s peers.

    @Blue Kid

    You obviously have issues.

    This man is Arab, yes but he was raised in both Europe and America. He’s westernized and doesn’t have the traditional Arab man mentality.

    There’s a MAJOR difference between just dating and being girlfriend and boyfriend. Dating can be friendship or simply just hanging out to see how far it goes. Girlfriend/boyfriend means there’s a commitment and relationship there. That’s why he said “we’re not dating, she’s my girlfriend” to set the record straight since there was a lot of speculation.

    @They have nothing in common

    You know NOTHING about their relationship. Again, you know N-O-T-H-I-N-G. You don’t know if he follows the Islam religion. You don’t know what they have in common. You don’t know. Get a hold of yourself and STOP being jealous, negro! You’re so f****** stupid. You act like two people from different backgrounds can’t fall in love with one another. What a stupid mentality!!!

    Black people hardly purchased the albums she released except for her hardcore fans. Just look at her first two album sales compared to Control and Rhythm Nation. She sold over 140 million records because of white America, NOT black America. Hell, white America is the reason why the likes of Kanye West and Jay-Z sell as many albums as they do. Only an idiot would make the correlation that Janet should date within her race because of the support? You’re so f****** stupid. Please, go kill yourself.

    Get a grip! I am tired of reading such racist and negative comments- if Janet Jackson wants to be with an Arab guy, that ‘s really her business and if she prefers to place her wealth in the hands of non-African- Americans, again that is her business. As for calling her boyfriend ‘Ugly’, this is uncalled for; on the contractly, I think he is an undeniably attractive guy who comes across as a respectful, confident and open minded young man. For your information, this man does not need money from Janet Jackson as he comes from a wealthy family and by all accounts, has a steady job. As for them not sharing ‘no cultural background’ (to use your own incorrect grammar), that is really not your business either- it is between the two of them how they deal with this issue. I wish this couple much happiness and remember, love has nothing to do with skin color, culture, religion or nationality.

    A relationship is between a man and a women not a man and a women and the whole world. Who are we as people to judge them or the decisions they make. Janet and Wissam and way better than JD because jd cheated on janet and has been since they pratically got together. I feel that JD was only with janet for name sake and to show her off to everyone around him ( and I mean that in a negative way). Yes! Jd helped her and all but he was a cheater and was only looking for recognition…
    Wissam on the other hand is stating that he is not dating janet she is his girlfriend. He is standing up for her WISSAM DOES NOT NEED JANET’S MONEY…she seems in a good and happy space and we if we truely are her fans should respect that , not everyone is perfect and wissam looks like he is in if for the long hall. I love them together.

    @Blue Kid

    Are you serious?

    Berry Gordy didn’t do s*** for Janet nor for her career and JD DEFINITELY didn’t do s*** for Janet but lower status. All the s*** he did for her musically flopped and didn’t make a dent on the charts. Sure Tyler Perry featured Janet in three of his films but she would be just where she’s out without them.

    So do you hear how dumb you sound? You’re trying make a correlation between Janet’s overall successful to three black men that didn’t do s*** for her career-wise nor image-wise.

    Like I said already Janet has white America to thank for all her successes.

    and OOP there goes that “He’s/she’s gay” BS that coons ALWAYS love to throw – which is most likely due to deep seated issues with homosexuality within the black community but that’s for a different time) . Looks like you’re the one that needs to get a grip. Janet isn’t gay nor is this guy seeing as he was married once before.

    Um so what if there’s “cultural differences”? This wouldn’t be the first time Janet dated someone with “cultural differences”.

    You pathetic c*** trash! You need to look BEYOND color, religion and culture.

    Im muslim, and I probably love & respect Jesus more than you do. And as a muslim man he is permitted under Islam to marry a Christian woman, as Christians as well as Jews are “people of the book” (bible, torah) .
    So he could be planning a future with her that is permitted under his religion.
