ABC News has confirmed Janet Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana, are splitting. This news comes just months after Jackson had a baby boy named Eissa Al Mana at age 50, the couple’s first child.
A representative of the couple told the media house ABC that the two are not divorcing, but separating.
This is Janet Jackson’s third marriage, her union with singer James DeBarge was annulled in 1985; in 1991, she married dancer, songwriter and director Rene Elizondo Jr., but they kept their relationship a secret until their divorce in 2000. The Pop icon had a long-standing relationship with Hip Hop mogul, producer and artist, Jermaine Dupri but the two never tied the knots.
