Pop icon Janet Jackson says she felt like a prisoner while she was with estranged husband Wissam Al Mana. According to her brother Randy Jackson, the 42-year-old multimillionaire "verbally abused" Janet, 51, and made her feel like a prisoner.

A source tells US Weekly: “Janet felt like a prisoner" in her own home. “Her life was sheltered," says the source.

Janet and Wissam welcomed a son, Eissa, in January. She moved out of their London home with her son soon after he was born.

The source said Janet was feeling vulnerable after her brother Michael Jackson died in 2009. Wissam came along at just the right time.

“He bailed her out (emotionally) and whisked her away to the Middle East… Janet lived a very lavish life with him,” says the source. “His money could afford them a lot of privacy, which was what she craved.”

As the chemistry faded from their relationship, amid rumors of Wissam cheating, Janet explored the idea of having a high-risk pregnancy.

“Janet was never very maternal before, but that changed with Wissam,” adds the insider. “He really wanted a baby and she was ready. She realized she found the right guy."

But she underestimated what Wissam really wanted; “a traditional wife who stuck with Muslim traditions” and cut off her family and former friends.

“Janet felt like she couldn’t be herself anymore,” says the source. “Janet felt like her music was suffering and she resented Wissam,” says the insider. “She couldn’t settle down and be what he wanted."

Janet is not interested in dating as she continues her State of the World tour around the United States.

    I hope Janet will be okay--she looks very troubled. There's no telling the shit he put her through!

    Janet snatching wigs on her tour ... I know that much... ? ... and that baby is adorable .... she is divorced thee end.. and doing damn good .... slaying .... no need to ponder on old wounds ... living it could have been enough for her....

  • Bonsai

    Lies.

  • BRuhman_Vista

    Imagine that. A Muslim man that wanted a wife to abide under his Islamic beliefs. "Underestimated?" Uh, OK. Surely Janet couldn't have seen that coming. ? #control

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    She knew what she was getting into....

  • Quitedeliteful

    If this is true her troubles are still not over. Wissam may eventually want the kid to be indoctrinated as a Muslim or may even want him to live in the Middle East to learn his daddy's culture... trouble may still lie ahead...

  • Rayne

    Damn music was putting him to sleep ? Her music does me like this often and the whispering baby talk ? My goodness you grown ass hayle. Sing right and louder. I still like her tho.

    ONE HELLUVA PUBLICITY STUNT!! Doesn't appear to have helped ticket sales much though!

  • Ni Ni

    Cry me a river Janet! She knew she didn't have no business marrying that man. I like Janet but she is just another silly bird. As old as she is, there's no excuse to be in an abusive relationship, then bring a child in that mess.

  • SumthinSweeter

    You dead ass wrong for that. Not every singer is the same in their vocal tone. Not everyone can be a big voiced take me to church and back type of singer. Janet has made some iconic music while "whispering" as you say. Plus she is an awesome performer and actress.

  • BettyBoop

    If she sings too loud you'll be able to tell she can't sing.

  • SumthinSweeter

    That is so true. Smh.

  • You Could Never

    Have never gone to a JJ concert for her vocals lol. And I have been to them all. Every tour since R. Nation 1814

  • Wreckognize Game

    Man, why do these rich women act so dang gone weak? Fuk these dudes Mary J and Janet. Roll the hell out. Tired of these sorry ass stories. Buy a plane and say bye Bih.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    That baby is adorbs Janet...its ok she can dry those tears with those hundred dollar bills

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Word on the streets she's back with JD

  • Wreckognize Game

    One of these other sites puts everything I say in moderation

  • bashi

    Janet why have your brother assassinated your son father in American press. This makes bad for these girls you wants a wealthy arab man. Why you never leave before the baby. You was at fashion show with him parading but now this man verbally abuse you the lies you celebrities tell to sell tickets

  • pecancandy

    Cutie pie

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    this is what i was thinking as well. and with his wealth, he will definitely try to use it to control what happens with his son (and heir) in the future https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9d465041cfaadc9080119da3ebc9e8e678679d3b3b44dc4f5fce24974c1de281.gif ...keep dancing Janet

  • https://www.instagram.com/nymagee/ Ny MaGee

    STFU, Janet. You settled for a Muslim with traditional values... you knew what you were getting into so don't act brand new now and play the victim. And I'm convinced she only had this baby so she can be truly financially secure for life. #bishbye

  • Scorpio

    I loves Janet, Lord knows I do, but I have to agree she is needy and it makes no sense that she at her age with all her advice and music that sings to abuse and being aware of it, that she herself is not intelligent enough to avoid this scenario. I think dude was too traditional, but at the same time Janet is needy and needs a bunch of people playing into her attention seeking.

  • Naptastical

    Look at her pretending to look sad even though she's about to finesse him out of billions ?

  • Shamari123

    I love Janet and all but you can't tell me she did not know how Muslim tradition works. If their women have barely any right then so will you.

  • 88

    eww so she just like MJ except she will leave all her money to a lil Arab baby self hate is real.

  • blackbutter63

    What I want to know is why isnt she holding that baby's back but the bodyguard is:).

  • Phillybruh

    Really most dates are sold out

  • Phillybruh

    I get so puzzled at this statement, Janet is not a broke bird, where is he going to hide with Janet Jacksons baby and it not affect his company. After the tour she is going back to London, where he lives not the middle east.

  • Coy little wink

    Not!

  • Phillybruh

    She was doing just that and seemed fine with it. He went a bit too far while she was Pregnant and she bounced.

  • guest

    This is just the beginning of her worries for her with him....trust and believe her EX will want his son to be raised as a Muslim the first time she objects or reject it. Hes gonna take his son.

  • Coy little wink

    I want Janet to shut up and stay private

  • Phillybruh

    Where is the billionaire going to take the child of one of the biggest stars in the world.

  • Ni Ni

    I saw a video of her on tour and this 50 yr old woman is still on stage patting her kitty...no growth, smh.

  • Phillybruh

    you haven't seen this tour then.

  • IAmLawlessBrooks

    Screw it Wissam knew Janet was a freak when he stepped to her! I see you with your lil dirty thoughts boiiiii

  • Numba Pulla

    She knew who that man was and thought she was going to break him away from his traditions. Sike.

  • Phillybruh

    He knew who she was as well. And pursued her for that reason.

  • Numba Pulla

    She comes off as a very submissive person. And her music was suffering before she met him.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    She's a US ciitzen and US resident. He'd have to fight her in an American court. It's not going to be so easy for him to just "take his son".

  • Phillybruh

    Music goes in cycles, she hadn't released anything for a long time while she was with him. Until Unbreakable.

  • Phillybruh

    The baby was born in London, they agreed to raise the kid there, but she wants to work.

  • Scromes1212

    Cut it out Janet lol you have issues. Period. It didn't work with him like it didn't work with the last 20 dudes smh at some point we have to look in the mirror.

  • Phillybruh

    That man didn't have traditional values until after they were married.

  • Phillybruh

    Why didn't it work out with JD. I mean he did have a baby with a stripper while with her, how is that her fault?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    But she underestimated what Wissam really wanted; “a traditional wife who stuck with Muslim traditions”
    -------------------
    Well, gee... Not shocking at all. I guess that's what you should expect when you choose to marry a muslim man.

  • more

    She is to old to be this dumb. How old is she again??? Wow but i guess stupid has no age limit. Look at Bill Cosby wife and countless other woman. Only credit i give her is that she was never out here having babies with men who could care less about her married or not she did it later in life good for her on that but i honesly would have slapped his brains out

  • Justlooknout

    Yeah, I agree. I was looking at my screen sideways.

  • Scromes1212

    JD was the person he was when she met him. He always loved strippers. She think somebody is gonna change cause she Janet Jackson smh not happening. Her puzzy aint no different then the next.

  • Phillybruh

    Doesn't mean raw dog her and knock her up though. Come better than that.

  • more

    Thank you! At this age how can you be this stupid. I dont by that she was vulnerable due to Micheal death. They barley hung out

  • Karen Brady

    I wonder what kind of abusive things he said to her.

  • more

    Lmaooo!!! Your right

  • Scromes1212

    Like I said, he is who he is. She knew that. She no different then Hallie smh

  • Phillybruh

    Probally you ain't ish anymore, you used to be this and you used to be that, nobody cares about Janet Jackson anymore.

  • Karen Brady

    lol

  • Karen Brady

    Yes it's so not like her.

  • Scromes1212

    You know him?

  • Phillybruh

    I mean in the last 20 years Janet Jackson has been with two dudes JD and this guy.

  • shelly

    Janet knew what she was doing. I would put up with his nonsense secure my share and move on.

  • Karen Brady

    Stop it.

  • Scromes1212

    Keep telling yourself that lol and oh yeah, she's 50 so from little penny til she was 30 she could have had plenty sex. I know she's probably your hero but she is human.

  • Miss Thang

    you obviously are stuck on an agenda not rooted in reality.

  • Karen Brady

    Wait. A real kitty or her...???

  • Coy little wink

    Its just like why is she trying her divorce in the court of public opinion...i mean she got what she wanted....out plus a baby...now she wants our sympathy...suspect to me

  • Phillybruh

    Through stories and their courtship. She didn't change her appearance and such until they were well within their marriage. He was with her while she was pulling dudes on stage at the essence festival so stop acting like you know how traditional he was.

  • Scromes1212

    Reality is she can't keep a man. That's a fact. You can defend it how you want but it's truth

  • Phillybruh

    I never said she wasn't human, your comments make it seem like she isn't. Your giving Both Wissam and JD a pass while holding her accountable for ish they did.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Cute baby, and at the end of the day he is all that's matters.

  • Phillybruh

    She kept them both for 10 years each seem like a good record to me.

  • Scromes1212

    No I'm just a man. When you leave a woman that's bat sh#t crazy it's always my fault. If I didn't cheat then they will just say I was verbally abusive lol could you imagine if a man used that excuse?Lol

  • Phillybruh

    Oh now I get it, your the crazy one and every women is at fault for your crazy

  • Miss Thang

    Beyoncé too. Because you can't tell me Jay Z hasn't been abusing and cheating on her for YEARS. But she is not going anywhere.

  • free

    "you only got with me for my money, trick!"

  • Scromes1212

    You contradicting yourself lol staying with a man that had a baby by a stripper for ten years is a good move?(And possibly being back with this man)

  • Faithz

    I love how you worded this,,,After the Chemistry faded, You go Auntee.

  • Scromes1212

    Look below lol no, staying with a man that got a stripper pregnant is crazy.

  • Faithz

    Cute little fellow, and he come from money for real.

  • Numba Pulla

    Cycles? Tell that to Beyonce.

  • Phillybruh

    But she didn't stay with him. That's the reason they broke up. And I highly doubt she's back with him.

  • Phillybruh

    I wonder what her response was...lol

  • Faithz

    I though she was married to Debarge fellow once
    upon a time.

  • Phillybruh

    That was 35 years ago

  • free

    that quiet, mumbly shyt she does on her songs.

  • Scromes1212

    She became his wife. In Islam that means tlhings change. What was ok before may not be ok now.

  • InsecureNEVA

    Love the little guy's Adidas.

  • Phillybruh

    I'm not sure why she gets that reputation I hear her on her albums just fine.

  • Renee26

    What did she expect when she got with a Middle Eastern man??? I think she just wanted the baby

  • Phillybruh

    Tell what to Beyoncé, she sells 3 million albums and makes the most off her tours. She still outsold Control.

  • Renee26

    Called her bitches daily

  • Phillybruh
  • Renee26

    So you didn't hear the mumble whispers huh?? You got good hearing...you understand everything Busta Rymes, Twista, and Bone said the first time with no problems huh???

  • Phillybruh

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Of all the quality black men she could have been with, she chooses this Arab dude... then this happens.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    He is a cutie, and Janet looking like she is 23, so beautiful!

  • Karen Brady

    poor little tink tink #deepsigh

  • Keepin’IT100

    She should of stayed with Jermaine Dupri.. They seemed really happy..

    That whole family has self hatred issues...

    LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ... you think he said "trick" for sure? LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • Keepin’IT100

  • Karen Brady

    LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • Owww76

    Exactly, she's a soft spoken woman. I love her voice. He was verbally abusive to her while she was pregnant, that had to be a lot to deal with during a high risk pregnancy

  • Phillybruh

    You never fell asleep at a janet Jackson concert..stop the lies.

  • Keepin’IT100

    There's plenty of others that aren't...

  • Karen Brady

    Now that would be just mean and terrible if he did. But probably.

  • Phillybruh

    Have the strippers baby over everyother weekend like gabby

  • Ni Ni

    Her cooch ma'am ?

  • Owww76

    But she's not speaking, remember this information is coming from "Insiders" and people take it and run with it.

  • Scorpio

    I heard this as well, its probably true, because now she can be with JD with no expectations, she has the baby, so no pressure there, and she back touring, so that makes her happy. Probably feels she can just kick it with JD from here on. she feeling like there's no use in meeting someone totally new and getting to know them at this point, where as JD most likely was decent, except for the occasional immaturity, She'd be okay with a weekend love at this point with him.

  • Owww76

    Basically and with no promotion! I will see her in November front row!

  • Wreckognize Game

    Yes on Bey but at least she makes lemonade and we only hear it in songs. The others been doing more crying than Nipsey Russell in The Wiz.

  • Ni Ni

    Ikr, we are not buying that crap they trying to sell.

  • Keepin’IT100

    Let's not forget.. This is all speculation!! People always create stories for celebrities and their failed relationships.. We don't know what happened in their relationship..

  • Keepin’IT100

    He cheated?

  • Phillybruh

    Gotta kid the same age as their break up

  • stav

    Those Jackson's do NOT like black children!

  • Keepin’IT100

    If that's the case he was completely dumb for that..

  • Phillybruh

    That's odd since they all have black children.

  • Scromes1212

    Sandra can you please do a post on former NFL star Albert Hansworth getting "verbally abused" by his ex wife. But I know we won't get that post since it's not possible for a man to be verbally abused smh the first thing a scorn woman yells is verbal abuse smh she could be a doctor and he got a GED and she will be trying to explain how he "verbally abused" her smh this world is getting crazy

  • James Hudson

    I hear her too... if you really want to hear her check out "Makin love in the rain" by Herb Alpert or "Where are you now" (Janet) LP f**k these haters on here... Without Janet you have NO Aaliyah, Britney, Beyoncé, J-Lo they all took a page out of "Ms Jacksons" handbook.

  • SJ

    *have

  • datATLboi

    I'M NOT NOT BUYING HER STORY-----who tf would abuse JANET aka MS JACKSON???!? She stayed and had a son for that chezzeeck and BOUNCED like anybody else

  • datATLboi

    they are reportedly getting back together----btw he cheated on her

  • free

    yep!

  • free

    becky called him the n-word and he realized that all he really is to her. a n... with a paycheck.

  • Phillybruh

    Something clearly happened between the time he's sending thank you notes and flowers to reporters for their positive reviews of her album and Unbreakable tour to when she got pregnant and had the baby, people do change under certain circumstances.

  • James Hudson

    Janet been relevant since the 70's (Penny on Good Times) 80's Charlene (Different Strokes) Cleo (Fame) hit after hit with Jam & Lewis Movies (Poetic Justice, The Klumps) she don't need Money from NOBODY she's a Jackson. #PAIDINFULL on her own terms.

  • Phillybruh

    You would be surprised, who would believe Wesley Snipes knocked Halle upside her head but he did.

  • MsPam

    That’s a joke, Right?!

  • KLo

    adorable baby

  • Phillybruh

    No it isn't Jermaine first wife was Berry Gordy daughter 3 black kids, Titos wife was black, Marlon and Randy both married black women before he and Jermaine knocked up the same chick. So they all have black children.

  • Miss Thang

    I don't believe a man needs to be kept. It's funny, you never hear of a man "not being able to keep a woman." That could be said about anyone who has had multiple relationships.

  • James Hudson

    Jermaine married Hazel Gordy (Black) Tito married Dee Dee (Black) Jackie married Enid (Black) Rebbie had black kids by her black husband so I think that would make ALL their children BLACK right? Ijs.

  • MsPam

    Randy needs to shut up! Janet seems to always be the victim, her last husband Renee was supposedly mean to her and don’t forget James DeBarge, he was the light skinned Ike Turner. At some point you Janet are making bad choices. With all the brothers she has, how come they’re not kicking some azz?!

  • James Hudson

    Does anyone remember when Janet went to Portolla? This may go over people's head... but if you from L.A. It won't.

  • MsPam

    Randy has never been married to a black woman.

  • MsPam

    You know Bobby Brown claimed that Janet told him her family wouldn’t be happy with them going out together because he was black.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    With all the brothers she has, how come they’re not kicking some azz?!

    This is the QOTD...I only have 1 brother, who is younger than me and I know he is down for an ass whooping if a guy hurts me.

  • Phillybruh

    I don't recall James Abusing her, as so much as he was 19 yr old full blown crack addict. Apparently Randy moved to London when she needed him to.

  • Coy little wink

    Loops...Randy needs to shut up ?

  • Yardgirl

    I believe her. I had a neighbor married to a guy from Saudi Arabia. He hated being in the US (was here for school) and moved back home. The minute she go there he changed up on her!! When she could not take it anymore and threatened to leave he said go but you not taking "my' kids (4) I lost touch and have always wondered what she ended up doing. A friend of my cousin went into a marriage as wife number 4 last Summer with eyes wide shut. She back in NY scarred AF!! We told her stupid ass not to do it but she saw $$$$. Dummy.

  • Phillybruh

    I don't care anymore at this point, this family has no more issues than any other except theirs makes the news cycle.

  • Miss Thang

    I have an older brother who knows I was sexually abused and he doesn't give AF. So, some of us do not have protective brothers.

  • James Hudson

    Janet used to eat at "Leo's" BBQ back In the day on Crenshaw use to drive all the way from Encino to L.A. Just to eat with her people, Janet not loving being Black? GTFOH.

  • MsPam

    James was the bad guy in the marriage like the other husbands according to her. She’s a saint.

  • Kirenee

    Men and women, learn about the cultural differences of people you fall head over heels for first!

  • Phillybruh

    It fits their narrative of her or any celebrity for that matter.

  • Tay Gee

    I love me some Janet "Damita Jo" Jackson. I'm glad she was able to get out of that controlling situation. Compromising in relationships is healthy, but not for sake of losing who we are and what we have to offer.

  • Phillybruh

    Well I watched their Unsung, he wasn't good guy especially if he was on drugs. I don't know what went on with Rene, however he did sleep with her chorographer.

  • MsPam

    She no better than Halle Berry, people call her crazy because she can’t keep a man but give Janet a pass for the same thing.?!

  • Phillybruh

    being a crack addict is a valid reason for annulment.

  • Phillybruh

    Well look how that turned out for Whitney, thank god joe stepped in. I don't think it was because of his race more so he was ghetto

  • James Hudson

    He was f**king her Chorographer Tina Landon.

  • Tink Tink

    I've met a good bit of "muslims" that are not very traditional.

  • Tay Gee

    Celebrities are people too and they go through the same things we do. If anything I think with more money and fame come even more problems. Everyday things celebs deal with like us "regular folk"... Cheating, Physical & Mental Abuse, Alcoholism, Drugs, Suicide, Stealing, Killing, Racism and Uncle Tom, lol.

  • Elaine Katzen

    Nah... Janet Jackson held out for the highest bidder ($$$) to get impregnated by. What she and many desperate, jacked-up females want is a BABY... by any means necessary. She wanted a BABY. She obviously didnt want to be a MARRIED wife and mother.

  • Phillybruh

    I don't think either of them wanted children to be honest with you, what 38 yr old marries a 46yr old thinking that. She got pregnant at the end of the first leg of the tour and that's that.

  • Tay Gee

    I'm sure she played her part, but to place all blame on her is insensitive don't you think?

  • Elaine Katzen

    Janet is on record saying that she wanted to be a "mother"... this was before she found her Saudi benefactor.

  • Elaine Katzen

    Either way, it's a "jacked-up", albeit musically talented, clan.

  • MsPam

    I’m sorry to hear that. Sending you a hug.

  • Karen Brady

    No one told Joe that they're black huh? FOH.

  • Tunie

    I see a look of alarm on her face...and where did all the Arabic looking bodyguards come from? Wissam got Janet surrounded. I don't like it!

  • Elaine Katzen

    They were ALL legendary for being "softies" and great with melodies. I assure you they didnt have the wherewithal to kick anyone's "azzes"...lol

  • Karen Brady

    With his accent too. I'm crying.

  • Karen Brady

    Greasy Jermaine.

  • Blak

    Right, she felt like a prisoner but STILL got pregnant at 50 and cashed out by having his baby. I ain't buying the shit she is trying to sell

  • Karen Brady

    Cuz they're soft?

  • Karen Brady

    Damn I hate hearing this to my core. I'm sorry. Sometimes family can blow your mind. Happens to most I think. In one way or another.

  • LuLu

    That's true. Never thought about it like that. I'm not convinced she was pregnant, though. She had ONE photoshopped picture on the cover of People and that's it. We all know Janet like to "thicken up" in her "off" season. LOL!

  • Phillybruh

    They all say that in interviews, its what women are supposed to say. It wasn't until recently Oprah started to explain why she didn't want children.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    “His money could afford them a lot of privacy, which was what she craved.”

    Janet has her own money. She can afford to pay for her own privacy.

  • http://www.pureromance.com LA

    Wow

  • Quitedeliteful

    Janet is not broke by a long shot but she doesn't have the billionaire money that he has. If he decides to whisk the kid away on a private jet to the Middle East who is going to get involved? It's not like she can go over there and get him back. She'll go back to London and all will be well for now but I wonder about when the boy hits twelve or thirteen -- will his father feel like it is time for him to be indoctrinated in Muslim culture? I doubt the father won't want him to spend a few years in the Middle East learning to become a 'true' Muslim man. Nothing wrong with it if both parents are on board. I'm wondering if Janet will be ok with this...

  • toni walker

    Janet has her own money and she does not need to have a baby for money.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Westernized women who date or marry men from countries where men rule the household, need to do their due diligence.

    I know exactly what happened between Janet and Wissam. They loved one another, but their definitions of marriage, weren't the same.

    Janet tried to comply with her husband's wishes, but control in the hands of a dominant force is never-ending and there's no room for compromise. If you are not a completely submissive person, it isn't going to work.

    In the beginning, Wissam's dominance made Janet feel loved, protected, and safe. She no longer had to be "Ms. Control." However, when Janet realized her marriage wasn't a democracy and her husband wasn't going to compromise his beliefs, she bailed.

    I dated a Muslim for five years. He was extremely jealous. He even threatened one of my coworkers. His attitude and his father's attitude toward women, was appalling! To them, women are subservient creatures, who carry babies, raise children, cook, clean, and keep their mouths shut.

    If Janet had made it clear that she wasn't a submissive woman, Wissam wouldn't have married her. Traditionally Muslim men aren't interested in marrying a westernized woman who needs her independence.

    Conveniently, she stays married exactly 5 years. Just enough time to receive her 200 million. Ok... I love her tho!

  • Saharabutnotdry

    You need more people hun , Wissam is an outstanding young man , he is known for being humble and well natured , just collect your $ and be quiet old fool .

  • Saharabutnotdry

    And you are judging a whole religion based on some booty you dated ? Mmmkkk.
    You want to stereotype , don't complain when others stereotype you .

  • Saharabutnotdry

    People keep saying Janet has her own money , Her $ doesn't run long , Wissam on the other hand is WEALTH .

  • Saharabutnotdry

  • James Hudson

    Leo's rib tips were ??I used to see Janet and Mrs Jackson there usually on the weekends back in the day, they were as real & kool as can be "in the hood" it used to be a M&M soul food on Crenshaw & King ?

  • nick c

    Are you serious why have millions when you can have billions her and Mariah are both a trip using ghetto tactics to try to get paid more.

  • nick c

    Her and Mariah were both trying to get in the B club money has no limits.

  • nick c

    And she wanted more money Mariah tried to pull the same crap on a billionaire, this was definitely a come up game by Janet.

  • James Hudson

    Janet was very shy back then & very humble, recently I used to run into Jermaine & Jackie Jackson at the old Woodland Hills Mall (Westfield Shopping Plaza now) a lot before they moved to Calabasas.

  • Lady Elle

    Awww...he's a cutie

  • PussyGal0re

    Janet is quite cunning and full of sh%t. She is even hamming it up as the controlled wife and mother that finally escaped in the picture above. She looks weird holding the baby. I don't believe the baby is hers/theirs, she (clearly) had surgery and this is all about her image. She is the only one releasing stories. Private Janet.

  • PussyGal0re

    She is acting.

  • NicoleZee

    Wait, um when you are dating someone, aren't you aware of what their culture entails??? Why wait until marriage or the end of the marriage to complain??? I've heard that the Muslim culture is pretty strict for women, so why would a Black American woman want to be with a Muslim man knowing that she would have to abide by his cultural norms and customs??? I don't get it.

  • MythCalledLove

    Has there been one Jackson that has had a normal relationship? Rene maybe?? I know Janet has not been lucky in the love department. But I think her son will bring her joy and love that she has never felt. She has always had this sadness this family is odd to say the least but it has to be hard to think you've finally found love.

  • Olga Summer

    OK now I love me some Janet like the next...but ion feel not one bit of sry for her!! What exactly did she think she was getting marrying a Weathy Muslim man!!!???? ?

  • NicoleZee

    That's what I don't get, she KNEW or maybe she wasn't as educated on how the Muslim culture works. Either way, culture and religion can significantly affect a relationship. I wouldn't be open to converting to any religion, not my thing. I'm more on the spiritual side anyway.

  • suganspice68

    I also wonder did Wissam would often call Janet a habeeb? That is an arabic racist word that is like " ni$$er"

  • Keepin’IT100

    I doubt they are linking back romantically. Maybe for him to produce a song

  • Phillybruh

    The relationship apparently changed once the baby was on the way.

  • Phillybruh

    Is this the first ever divorce anyone has witnessed.

  • Phillybruh

    If she didn't carry this child or wasn't the bio logical mother wouldn't his team have put that out already. She is this babies mother she carried him for 9 whole months.

  • Phillybruh

    Actually it was less than 5 years. And how do you know whats in the pre-nup?

  • Karla E

    I knew that when they got married. Men like that don't change for no one. I also believe he called her bitches like it was her birth name too. Her being a pop star didn't mean nada to him considering his family has billions. She's good being single and taking care of her baby. I'm just glad she got out before it dragged on and on.

  • Karla E

    Agree

  • Karla E

    They lie and say it's okay to marry a 'Christian' all while dating. Play mind tricks and shit. I love you as you are baby, you don't need to change. Ink don't even be dry before they pull out all the rules.

  • Karla E

    What's wrong with the way she's holding him?

  • Lisa Lisa 901

    Baby dont look half black at all. Cute tho

  • Oya Shango

    Did she conceive with a donor egg? At 50 I don't think she had any viable eggs of her own. On another note, she appears to still be suffering from postpartum depression. She looks very sad and clinically depressed.

  • Lolly Asher

    I'm not believing nothin til Rebbie says it! There is way more to this story and he does tit for tat with the publicity thing too. His next photo op with the baby should come in 5..4..3..2..

    My friend of 3 years is Muslim and her pops just nuts in both her mother's and keeps it moving. Both her father's wives are stuck caring for the children its crzy

    Janet probably wanted to try something new. Remmber she is 50. She been out here for a minute and had dated diffrent races short black you name. She probably tried something new

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I have spent time around traditional Muslim families and the hierarchy is clear. Males, even male children, are more respected than females... even if that female is the wife. Janet should have done her homework.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I understand your point, but Janet isn't a baby and she has travelled the world. If she had thoroughly investigated her husband's culture, she would have known her marriage wasn't going to be a democracy. That's not how it works in a traditional Muslim marriage. A Muslim wife who challenges her husband's authority, is asking for trouble.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    That's a very poetic way of phrasing it. ?

    You're right smh Janet is stuck on stupid but at least she left

  • Luvn_it

    You can have your eggs frozen for later use.

  • enanni

    Yes, he did. In fact, was why he 'married' her. Fulfilling a fantasy. "... I can get that big star and turn her into my slave. I got the money...." Janet is no star to him. she's nobody. Watch to see what happens to your tennis star next. Blacks loving everybody else but themselves.
