According to Us Weekly on Feb. 25, Janet Jackson, 46, isn't going to wed Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana, 37, as was announced in December 2012. The reason: the couple is already married. In fact, they have been secretly married for months.
The couple told Entertainment Tonight in a statement on Monday, Feb. 25.
"The rumors regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private and beautiful ceremony. Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favorite children's charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy."
This is the third marriage for Jackson, who split from longtime boyfriend Jermaine Dupri in 2009; however, she didn't marry him, but she was previously married to James DeBarge and Rene Elizono. Jackson attempted to keep those relationships secrets from the public as well.
A source close to Jackson said the singer wants to start a family with Al Mana, whom she began dating in 2010.
Congratulations Janet and Wissam!
