Maybe, Maybe Not: Janet Jackson and Wisam al Mana Split
Have Janet Jackson and husband of five years, Wissam al Mana, parted ways just months after welcoming their first child? Well, if online reports are to be believed, they have. Everyone from People magazine to US Weekly are claiming Janet left Wissam due to his overbearing ways and push for her to convert to Islam.
Sources have reportedly told various media outlets “Sadly, Janet and Wissam have decided to separate after agreeing things just weren’t working out. They’re determined to be good parents to six-month old Essai and graciously request that their privacy be respected during this very trying time.”
The couple began dating in 2010 and married in a secret ceremony in 2012. They’ve quietly split their time between homes in London and Dubai.
Janet’s marriages have always been a thing of mystery, with people usually only finding out she’s married once she’s filed for divorce. She never speaks openly about her relationships and is notorious for keeping her private life out of the press. I’m personally going to call this rumor false until Janet says otherwise.
I don’t think Wisam is overbearing. I don’t believe he’s trying to force Janet to become a Muslim and I don’t believe they’re divorcing just months after welcoming a new baby. Haha. No Muslim dude is gonna allow that anyway. They try to keep their families together and don’t believe in throwing their women to the wind and letting other men play daddy to their children.
Plus, let’s not forget Wisam’s recent open letter to his wife. This does not sound like a man on the verge of divorce to me.
