Janet Jackson is officially off the market. The pop singer secretly wed Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana in a private ceremony last year. She released a statement to Entertainment Tonight after rumors were circulating about an extravagant wedding for later this year.
Janet released the following statements below:
“The rumors regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony,” said the newlyweds, who were recently spotted at Milan Fashion Week.
They donated money to charity in lieu of exchanging gifts. “Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favorite children’s charities,” said the two, who asked that the public respect their privacy.
“We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy. With love, Wissam and Janet.”
