Did Janet Jackson’s Husband Emotionally Abuse Her?

Posted by Jeanne on September 13, 2017

Janet Jackson went through a lot to become a mother at the age of 50 and it seemed like, after her son, Eissa, was born, she and her 42-year-old Qatari businessman husband, Wissam Al Mana, had so much to celebrate. Unfortunately, the exact opposite happened.

Now that the pair have filed for divorce, older brother, Steve Randall “Randy” Jackson (who knew his real first name was Steve?! That’s crazy!), has shed light on the situation and it’s not good.

In an interview with People, Randy said, “It was quite an abusive situation. It came on later in the relationship, verbal abuse and being [made to feel like] a prisoner in her own home. No pregnant woman needs to go through being called a b***h every day. There were things like that. That’s what she went through.”

Wow! It’s hard to imagine Ms. Jackson allowing that to happen even once, never mind every day!

“I told her, ‘You’ve got to move in with me or I’m going to go over there and there’s going to be hell,’” Randy continued. “She was really pissed off. I told her, ‘I don’t care anymore. I’m tired of it. It’s too much.’”

The couple split in April, just three months after their baby was born. Now she’s back on the road after having to cancel dates during her pregnancy and fans are loving it. “She has custody and he, of course, allowed her to bring the baby on tour, but it’s constant harassment,” Randy claims. “This tour almost didn’t happen, but by the grace of God we’re here and we’re very prayerful.”

That might be why she broke down crying during her performance of “What About” in Houston this past Saturday night. The audience was stunned by her emotional response to a song about an abusive relationship.

“What you saw in Houston, it was her situation coming out, what she’s been going through,” Randy said. Sadly, he alleges that “the abuse is still going on” and comes out when the estranged spouses have to communicate about co-parenting issues.

If it’s true, that’s no way to live and, hopefully, making this public will discourage either partner from continuing a negative pattern.
