Recording artist Janet Jackson, sister of the late Superstar Michael Jackson wed Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana in 2012 and their only son, Eissa, was born on January 3, 2017.
Jackson’s recent retreat from the limelight [last posting to her social media back in 2016] and postponement of her Unbreakable world tour last year had all been put down to contentment with her marriage.
But last night, a close friend of Ms Jackson told The Mail on Sunday: ‘Sadly, Janet and Wissam have decided that it wasn’t working and to go their separate ways.
‘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.’
‘while one source said the split is amicable and the couple will co-parent their son, others said trouble had been brewing for months.’
“She thought he had become too controlling during the pregnancy and she had already allowed him to dictate her appearance and even the way she performed at concerts,” the source who works closely with the couple said.
