What Have You Done For Me Lately?! Janet Jackson Leaves Billionaire Husband Wissam Al Mana

By on April 10, 2017 in ArticlesBillionaire News

It seems that Wissam Al Mana forgot just who he is married to. Janet "Miss Jackson if you're nasty" Jackson has left her husband just months after having her first baby at age 50.

Reports say that Janet felt that Al Mana had become too controlling during her pregnancy. Even before she got pregnant, the billionaire told Janet what was and was not appropriate clothing for his wife as well as dictated how she should perform at her concerts.

Like I said, it seems he forgot just who he married.

Janet gave in to her husband's demands that she tone down her 2014 concert tour and wear clothing that covered her body, rather than the skimpy outfits she was known for. During her relationship with Al Mana, who is a devout Muslim, Janet did not make any music video featuring her trademark bump and grind dance style.

Over time, the changes that were forced on Janet began to grate on her nerves. She felt she was losing her fan base, according to a source.

On January 3, 2017, Janet and Wissam welcomed their son, Eissa Al Mana to the world.

Al Mana insisted that Janet live according to strict Muslim law, meaning she was not allowed to appear in public, or even leave the house, while she was breastfeeding.

The final straw came when Janet's mother Katherine visited her daughter and newborn grandson in London. Katherine Jackson is embroiled in an elder abuse lawsuit against her nephew Trent. Al Mana is said to have been completely dismissive of his mother-in-law while she was in London. After her mother left to return to Los Angeles, Janet could not take Al Mana's strict control of her life for even a moment longer.

Janet may have chosen her timing well. Perez Hilton reported that the couple had a difficult time reaching an agreement about their pre-nup. Supposedly, Janet gets half a billion dollars if they divorce after five years.

Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana have been married for five years.

Well played, Miss Jackson.
