In SplitsVille news today, Janet Jackson has reportedly split from Qatari business man and hubs of 5 years, Wissam Al Mana.
Following multiple reports, E! News confirmed the news a few hours ago. The couple also welcomed the first child together, Eissa Al Mana, just a couple of months ago on January 3, 2017.
A source told The Mail on Sunday, “They’re both busy people but determined to be good parents, even if they’re apart. It’s amicable and Eissa will stay with his mother, who is basing herself in London.”
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, the then-lovebirds 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 mom, Jackson has remained in London.
Janet’s mom Katherine Jackson and sister Rebbie Jackson have both visited her home, while Wissam has not been photographed publicly since their son’s birth. According to Page Six, it was her husband’s lack of concern over elder abuse claims brought against Trent Lamar Jackson by Katherine that led Janet to part from him.
“That’s when Janet made her decision that there was no turning back,” their source said. “She was worried about her mother—and Wissam showed little to no concern.”
Jackson was previously married to R&B singer James DeBarge between 1984-1985, and to professional dancer René Elizondo Jr. from 1991-2000.
