Janet Jackson: Divorce Rumors Are Lies
Ellisha Rader Mannering
Rumors that Janet Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana are talking divorce have been swirling for a while and although the media continues to speculate on the situation, Janet and Wissam have made it clear that the rumors are simply lies.
While neither Wissam or Janet have confirmed to the media that they are not divorcing, a source close to the couple has spoken up for them. The source said, “The rumors about their marriage are a lie. They are very happy and very much together. In fact, the couple has recently purchased an even larger home in New York.”
The couple were married in 2012 but managed to keep it a secret for several months. Their wedding ceremony was small and private, but they did confirm the marriage in 2013.
“Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favorite children’s charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy,” the couple said in their wedding announcement.
Janet hasn’t always been lucky in love and her marriage to Wissam makes her third. Janet was not able to find happiness with her two previous marriages, and rumors suggested that she wasn’t able to do so with Wissam either. Wissam is a billionaire, and it was alleged that she had only married him for money in the first place. This is where the divorce rumors first began.
One source claimed, “She confided to a few close friends and (her mother) Katherine that she’s preparing to leave him. And she’s begun calling friends at all hours crying and saying how miserable she is. . . Janet is getting set to challenge the prenup and demand a flat lump sum payout from his fortune.”
But friends of the couple insist that these rumors are not true and say that they are happier than ever.
Do you think Janet and Wissam will end up getting a divorce or do you believe that they are still in love?
