Janet Jackson splits from husband 3 months after giving birth

After five years together, the singer has reportedly parted ways with the Qatari businessman.

Just three months after welcoming their first child, it seems 50-year-old Janet Jackson has split with her billionaire husband Wissam Al Mana.

Reports surfaced in the Mail on Sunday over the weekend, with a source telling the publication: “Sadly, Janet and Wissam have decided that it wasn’t working and to go their separate ways."

“They’re both busy people but determined to be good parents, even if they’re apart. It’s amicable and Eissa will stay with his mother, who is basing herself in London.”

The pair began dating in 2010 and were married in 2012.

They have kept a very low-profile both during their relationship and since the birth of their son, Aissa, in January this year. 

Wissam, 42, is the music icon's third husband after previously getting married to musician James DeBarge in 1984 for one year and dancer Rene Elizondo Jr. in 1991.
