Janet Jackson aburptly ends her ‘blissful’ Islamic marriage to Qatari millionaire


He didn’t bring his other three wives and countless mistresses and young male lovers to accompany him delivering the gifts?

If she wasn’t pregnant she would probably have divorced sooner. At least he allowed her to take the steps to divorce him (we assume) unless she surprisingly filed it without his knowledge. That makes him unique for a Middle Eastern male. 99% of Muslim men would never permit the wife to seek divorce proceedings. It would puncture their honor. They are the ones who want to be in power to say the three words, “I divorce you” three times.

Janet Jackson’s estranged husband Wissam Al Mana returns to the home they once shared to deliver toys for their son following shock split

Their five year marriage has come to an end just months after welcoming their first child together.

But Janet Jackson’s estranged husband Wissam Al Mana looks determined to be a doting father.

The Qatari businessman – said to be worth over £800million – was seen arriving at the London townhouse he shared with the pop superstar twice, once over the weekend and as news of their separation became public and again on Tuesday.

Alongside his entourage, he delivered two huge bags of toys, as well as a number of balloons.

He was then seen leaving the mansion with a bag and a suitcase after his visit before departing in a chauffeured car.

The sister of the late Michael Jackson wed Al Mana in 2012 and their son, Eissa, was born on January 3.

Her recent retreat from the limelight – and the postponement of her Unbreakable world tour last year involving 36 gruelling stadium shows – had been put down to contentment with her marriage.

But a close friend of 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.’

Recent rumours had claimed that Al Mana had helped three-times-married Jackson settle down as she traded fame for a role as a devoted mother and wife before their shock split.

A divorce settlement could be complex and costly as 42-year-old Al Mana, CEO of the multinational Al Mana business conglomerate, is estimated to have a fortune of around £800million – at least four times the singer’s net worth.

It could mean that Jackson will get a huge chunk of her husband’s fortune amid reports their pre-nuptial stated that for a substantial financial payout the marriage would have to last five years.

When the couple married, there was much speculation, never confirmed, that Ms Jackson had converted to Islam, fuelled by her appearance in a head scarf.

There were rumours of a split within days of her son’s birth, when she was seen in public without a wedding ring but these were discounted at the time.

The singer was briefly married to singer James DeBarge in 1984 but the pair split the following year and the marriage was later annulled.

Her second husband was Mexican back-up dancer Rene Elizondo.

The couple wed in 1991 but divorced in 2000, with Ms Jackson paying him a reported $10 million (around £8 million).

In court papers filed as part of their divorce, Elizondo claimed she was paranoid about privacy and pretended the couple were boyfriend and girlfriend throughout their marriage ‘because she wanted me out of the limelight’.

He said she refused to give him songwriting credits on her Rhythm Nation album ‘because my involvement had to be kept secret to protect her image’.

Ms Jackson has claimed that their marriage was destroyed by his alleged addiction to prescription drugs.

Third time unlucky: In an interview after the end of her second marriage, the singer spoke about her conviction she might be ‘unlucky’ in love

In an interview after the end of her second marriage, the singer spoke about her conviction she might be ‘unlucky’ in love.

‘I thought I was jinxed,’ she said. ‘Maybe marriage isn’t for me? Maybe it’s my fault it never works.

‘I was always faithful. When it was over, I put up shields to protect myself from being hurt.’
