Given that the public didn’t even know that the couple had married in 2012 and was still speculating about the impending nuptials in January 2013, nobody could possibly claim to know what is going on in the marriage of Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana.
As it is, their marriage was only confirmed by Janet in February 2013 and it said to have been a small and private ceremony. Clearly it wasn’t the big bash some rumoured it to be, because they would have hardly been able to keep that a secret.
But since her marriage to Arab billionaire Wissam, Janet has kept a fairly low profile. She was rarely seen at official events of whatever nature, but was always accompanied by her husband whenever she did officially step out.
Her fans were so anxious for her to return that there was even a fake flyer launched wondering what happened to her and when she would give her fans what they wanted, namely more new music.
Not long ago Janet finally confirmed that she was indeed working on a new album, which would be accompanied by a world tour.
But she has kept her private life very private, despite the first rumours of a marriage breakdown emerging as early as February 2014.
A so-called source had revealed that Janet was ready to leave Wissam at that time and had been calling her mother as well as friends, tearfully confessing that it was over. Who that source is supposed to be is another question entirely.
Somehow the rumours have persisted well into 2015 and more claims have emerged that their marriage has collapsed. Nobody has any clue, however, what made the marriage collapse and thus far nobody has left anybody.
Not only are they still together, but Wissam threw his wife a lovely birthday party for her 49th birthday with only close friends and family invited to the event. That certainly doesn’t sound as if the couple is on the verge of a break-up. But there does seem to be a clear preference to keep things low key.
Lately the rumours have been called an outright lie and it’s been said the Janet and Wissam are not only very happy, but very much together.
Of course, neither Janet nor her husband have actually made any kind of public statement, but why should she? If all is well in her marriage, then she is clearly more intent on living her life and obviously also working on her music.
For now there’s no reason to assume that anything is wrong in their marriage and for Janet’s sake we hope it stays that way.
