Confirmed: Janet Jackson Splits From Husband Wissam Al Mana

Published: Sunday 9th Apr 2017 by Sam

Janet Jackson has been trending on social media and newswires all day after a source revealed she and husband Wissam Al Mana have split.

Fans have waited feverishly to hear official word from the fiercely private singer about the validity of the claim. Especially given that the superstar and billionaire Al Mana welcomed their first child, a son named Eissa, just three months ago.

And now said confirmation has arrived.

A rep for Jackson, 50, told ABC News that the couple, who have been married for five years, are no longer together.

Interestingly, the rep says the pair are separating – not divorcing.

The break-up brings an end to Jackson’s third marriage. She previously wed James DeBarge and Rene Elizondo.


Our thoughts go out to Janet during what must be a difficult time.

    The rep says they have separated. They didn’t say they are “no longer together”.

      Janet is a sexual being. Going from a sexual place to the constraints of being a Muslim or Jehovah Whitness are the complete opposite of who she is as a person. This man appears to be CONTROLLING and while is was “cute” for a moment. Let janet be JANET.

    The way there’re raising the child may be taking a toll a bit with different up brings, maybe how Janet seems so constricted now got frustrating Janet’s an entertainer.

    She always marries outside of her race and all the guys always look alike. She needs to try something (Black) new!

    • D April 9, 2017

      Debarge is black though

    • eric April 9, 2017

      The real Janet has reemerged and she is back in control!

      • Isabelle April 9, 2017

        Let’s just wait. We never know how these things end, really

    • Jasmine April 9, 2017

      Why does race even matter? Janet is a world-known entertainer and her taste in many has varied. Why are you race baiting?

    I never understand people who marry multiple times. Like if it happens past the second marriage it’s probably you. Hopefully the media lets her live and work on her marriage, if she sees fit.

    She just wanted to have a baby with a billionaire .. This celebrities are all gold digger they never satisfied with what they have . Baby mama

    May be for tax purposes??? Commentators are so negative. Let her live, people separate for years and get back together all the time children.

    She won’t have no problem running to that bank for 500 million dollars

  8. Cough Cough April 9, 2017

    She’s already worth almost 200 million before him- only an idiot social media junky would think she’s doing it for money. I’m sad for her though, I’m hoping Janet will start wearing color again.

    • RIHANNA & BEYONCE April 9, 2017

      b**** u are dump every celebrities do things for money that is the f****** game.

  9. Gee April 9, 2017

    Something is definitely rotten in the air, as Janet just gave birth three months ago. Hopefully both parties can do whatever they can to keep things amicable for the sake of baby Eissa. Also I pray that Janet takes time for herself and works on getting her mojo back so she can get back to doing what she loves the most and that is entertaining her fans that love and adore her.

    Lmao. And I thought Black Chyna ran the biggest scam on a man in years but no no no, Janet takes the cake lmao She got to cancel her tour that wasn’t selling, got to have a child and will now collect coins for 18 years. I bet that mans parent are calling her all kinds of no good low down N words!

    • Tim Brown April 9, 2017

      The tour was sold out when I went to the first leg bye… -_-

    Dayum!! Something serious must’ve happened for her to leave this dude 3 months after having his baby! I suspect that he was all suave and sweet in the beginning but then he started to show her how bad these rich Arabs treat their women. He betta not had put his mf’n hands on her!

    • Linear April 9, 2017

      And what would you do about it if he did?

  12. Savage_life April 9, 2017

    I wanted this to work for her i really she seemed so happy with him. It might be post baby depression or whatever you call it. I hope she they get back together damn s*** she changed her religion for him

  13. @ASAPicon April 9, 2017

    Stop speculating, Jante is a grown a** woman, and can do WHATEVA she wants (In my Beyonce voice). Im sure she didnt do it to cash out, The woman is already COINEDT to the gods!

    • Walker April 10, 2017

      What in the hell is “COINEDT?” Speak English, peasant.

    At least they haven’t ‘divorced’ so there is still room for reconciliation. Salma Hayek and her billionaire husband also split after having their first child but now they’re back together.

  15. Patthepuss April 10, 2017

    Conspiracy time; maybe they’re both scamming his family? The money isn’t actually his but his family’s and it’s tied up in various businesses. The two of them divorcing is the only way either of them can gain access to it if I remember correctly.

    I’ve met Wis before and got very “genteel” vibes from him so this whole thing could be a marriage of convenience and a way for them to make bank.

    If i was a billionaire your stupid ass is signing a prenup no negotiations , idc you a popstar

  17. truthteller April 10, 2017

    Can’t believe people are assuming the split is due to his religion and/or culture. Because of course all Middle Eastern men are controlling and subjugate their wives.

    • Qaz April 10, 2017

      Are you going to pretend that that isn’t the case enough of the time for it to be a valid generalization? I guess it’s just a coincidence that Janet went from walking around practically naked most of the time to wearing table cloths and Moo-moos? And who else in the Jackson family has a kid with a name like “Eissa?”

  18. Walker April 10, 2017

    Oh well, I guess it’s back to living off of whatever kind of an allowance she gets from Michael’s estate.
