Janet Jackson has been the subject of a nasty rumor recently regarding her marriage, but a source close to the singer says it’s just not true.
Jackson, who wed billionaire Wissam Al Mana in a secret ceremony in 2012, is not headed for divorce, according to the source. The couple reportedly just purchased a new home and have been laying low when it comes to the public eye.
“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 source said.
It’s the third marriage for the 47-year old pop star, and although rumors flew last year that she had accepted a proposal from Mana, the couple released a statement to set the record straight, saying they had wed in a private ceremony months earlier.
“The rumors regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony,” the statement read. “Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favourite children’s charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy.”
