Janet Jackson Splits From Husband Months After Giving Birth
Janet Jackson and her billionaire husband, Wissam Al Mana have split just months after welcoming a baby together.
Reports say the pop star and her hubby recently came to an agreement as things weren’t working and decided to go their separate ways.
According to one source the split is amicable and the couple will co-parent their son, while others have said trouble had been brewing for months.
A source said Janet thought her husband had become too controlling during her pregnancy and she had allowed him to dictate her appearance and the way she performed at concerts.
It was said that the “Rhythm Nation” singer gave in to included toning down her 2014 concert tour — wearing clothing that covered her body, instead of the skin-revealing outfits fans had grown to love.
She also declined to do music videos that featured any bumping and grinding, trademarks of her work, a source said.
The couple had hoped a baby would help but things got worse.
Al Mana reportedly insisted that the couple who were based in London, live under strict Muslim law, which includes barring a new mother from being seen in public while nursing the baby.
Jackson and Al Mana, who have kept most of their romance hidden in privacy while splitting their time between Dubai and Qatar, famously met in 2010 at a hotel opening.
Two years later, they announced their engagement only to come forward once more and reveal they had tied the knot during an intimate ceremony.
In April 2016, the songstress postponed her Unbreakable World Tour to start planning for a family of her own at the age of 50. Since becoming a mum, Jackson has remained in London.
Jackson married Al Mana in 2012 … they have one kid together, a son named Eissa who was born January 3.
It was Jackson’s third marriage. She was previously married to singer James DeBarge and René Elizondo Jr.
