Janet Jackson has a surprise for the world. She’s already married to boyfriend Wissam Al Mana.
After several months of rumors regarding an upcoming wedding, Jackson decided to set the record straight to Entertainment Tonight on Monday.
“The rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true,” she says. “Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony. 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.”
Jackson was previously married to song artist James DeBarge and director Rene Elizonda Jr. She also dated music producer Jermaine Dupri for seven years.
Wissam is managing director of Al Mana Retail, which represents A/X Armani Exchange.
