Janet Jackson’s husband, Wissam Al Mana, is catching heat for firing a female employee after she reported a rape by a male co-worker. According to the BBC, Marte Deborah Dalelv worked as an interior designer for Al Mana Interiors. The rape incident occurred in March during a business trip to Dubai.
The BBC reports that Dubai police arrested Dalelv and took away her passport after she reported the rape. She was sentenced to 16 months in prison while her alleged rapist was sentenced to 13 months for having an extramarital affair. Under Sharia law, the moral code and religious law of Islam, Dalelv participated in “an extramarital affair” with her rapist. She was convicted for violating that law.
After her conviction, Dalelv was suspended by her bosses at Al Mana interiors. Three weeks later, she received a letter, signed by Al Mana himself, informing her that she was “terminated for misconduct and breach of your employment duties, effective immediately.”
This is good news for Janet Jackson. Unlike other promiscuous, needy celebrities who change men like they change socks, Janet’s relationships have all been long term and stable.
