Janet Jackson Speaks Out About Divorce Rumours From Husband Wissam

Jackson splits with billionaire husband

The world was shocked to learn over the weekend that Janet Jackson and her husband of just five years, Wissam Al Mana, had separated. She is taking time to just be with her baby at this time and that's all she really wants.

Janet welcomed her first child in January and her representative subsequently revealed she was thrilled to have become a mother for the first time.

According to the report, the estranged couple was having marriage troubles for months as the songstress was exhausted of her businessman husband's controlling and dictating behaviour.

A report said that the Jackson matriarch, who is now 86, has some legal struggles but her son-in-law did not offer any help.

"They're both busy people but determined to be good parents, even if they're apart". "My husband and I are planning our family", she told her fans at the time. Apparently, Al Mana showed a very different side during her pregnancy.

And it was claimed Janet was only allowing "a select few" people to see her baby so soon after the birth.

'She has great doctors. The rumors were never confirmed to be true, though friends said she had taken to Muslim teachings early in the couple's relationship. Janet apparently is fine with taking whatever 5 years gives because she certainly wasn't trying to make it to 10!

While living in London with Al Mana, she missed her family in Los Angeles.
