Three months after the birth of their first child, Janet Jackson and husband, Wissam Al Mana, are reportedly getting a divorce.
Page Six is reporting that the split may have been a long time coming. Allegedly, Mana was very controlling of Janet and her parenting. “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,” a source told the outlet.
The estranged husband also wanted the superstar to cover her body up more and stop doing sexual dance moves in music videos. The insider said that this made Janet feel like she was losing herself and all of these demands apparently "drove her crazy." But, the couple still had a baby after all of these issues because they assumed it would help their relationship. Unfortunately, it didn't.
The final straw was Jackson's mother, Katherine Jackson, and the abuse case that she's going through with nephew Trent Jackson. Janet saw that Mana didn't seem to care about what her mother was going through. “That’s when Janet made her decision that there was no turning back,” the source said. “She was worried about her mother — and Wissam showed little to no concern.”
This is the third marriage for Janet, who was previously married to James DeBarge and René Elizondo, Jr., respectively. Janet and Mana have been married for five years.
