To hell with pomp and circumstance. Janet Jackson & Wissam Al Mana Secretly Marry- Clutch Magazine

Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana did it their way. In the midst of speculation of a grandiose wedding, Jackson and Al Mana secretly married last year. The news wasn’t sent via any outrageous public relation media release, but by posting a simple message on her website:

“The rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. 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. With love, Wissam and Janet”

Earlier this year there were rumors of prenuptial agreement issues. Allegedly, Al Mana ripped up one agreement, to put a better ‘deal’ on the table. Wissam is one of the richest investors in the Middle East where he represents such fashion and style icons as Hermes and Sonia Rykiel. He is also a major shareholder in Saks Fifth Avenue stores in Dubai, Doha, Bahrain and Kuwait.

This is Jackson’s third marriage. She was married to James DeBarge in 1984 and was divorced in 1985. Her second marriage to René Elizondo, Jr. lasted from 1991 to 2000.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

    I’m so happy for her. I instantly like him when he said in 2010:

    “I don’t date Janet Jackson. She is my girlfriend; there is a difference. She is a very special and talented woman who never ceases to amaze me.”

    BOOOM!!!!! I love it!

Very nice picture of the two here love those braids might cop me some haven’t done the braids deal since early 2000′s lol

  • The Other Jess

    I don’t blame her for keeping her business under wraps. Look at what the media did to her brother, Michael. Every move he made they tore him to shreds. Janet learned from her brother that mainstream media is not to be trusted. Do it, Janet!

    Janet is the queen of keeping her personal life personal. That is why I always side eye other celebrities who complain that they can’t keep their lives personal. Congrats to her and her hubby!

  • Kacey

    This is fantastic! I love the way they handled it. They seem to absolutely adore each other.

  • Kay

    When you’re a celebrity, people tend to think your personal life is up for grabs. People also tend to forget that celebrities are people too. So I don’t blame her for keeping things private. As long as she’s happy and doing what feels good for her, then that’s a wonderful thing.

  • swissblackberries

    Janet is 46. I can only assume that having a baby will be difficult. However, he is fione and the rich part is always a plus plus.

  • dirtychai

    They are such an attractive couple; I can hardly stand it.

  • Bren

    I LOVE the way they did it! Big,lavish weddings don’t determine long-term happiness. Congrats Janet and Wissam.
