Janet Jackson and Husband Split After Birth of Son

Posted by Kelli on April 10, 2017

This is so weird… and sad, really. Janet Jackson waited until she was 50 freaking years old to have a baby (despite all of the dispelled rumors about her having had a daughter with ex-husband El Debarge years ago!) and we really thought this was the beginning of her happily ever after.

Married to 42-year-old Qatari billionaire, Wissam Al Mana, for the past five years, it seemed like all that was missing was just a sweet little bundle of joy. Now that their son, Eissa, has arrived why would things suddenly go south?


According to sources, the pair are “not divorcing, but separating.” Jackson has been seen looking for her own place near her husband’s London home. Paparazzi spotted staffers bringing toys and balloons into the place just before the 3-month-old was brought for a visit with his father.


This is starting to sound a bit like the drama playing out between Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna. They had baby Dream and then one day Rob came home and she had packed up everything (even emptied his fridge!).


That first year of raising a baby can be so stressful for most parents. It’s not surprising that many couples struggle during this time. It almost feels like these rich people have too much money which makes it easy for people to just give up on each other really fast. Most of us can’t afford to hire movers and support two households with a newborn.


Hopefully, Jackson and Al Mana will reflect on half a decade of marriage and all of the reasons why they chose to have Eissa and find their way back to each other.
