Janet Jackson melted the hearts of everyone on social media when a picture of her and her newborn son Eissa surfaced. While everyone is gushing at the fact that we finally get to see the mystery baby, Jackson’s soon-to-be ex husband, Wissam Al Mana has also broken a silence of his own.
For those who don’t know, Janet filed for divorce from her husband of five years just three months after giving birth to their son. According to reports, it’s possible that the split could’ve been over the religion of the child seeing how the singer is a Jehovah’s Witness and Mana being Muslim.
via People Magazine:
“The children issue is always the biggest issue,” Dr. Rita George-Tvrtkovic, a theology professor at Illinois’ Benedictine University, tells PEOPLE.
A Jackson family insider previously told PEOPLE that Jackson and her billionaire husband separated shortly after welcoming their first child together.
“They come from very different worlds,” said the insider. “The cultural differences between her and Wissam became even more obvious after the baby was born.”
Well, Mana has now updated his self-named website with a message for his wife:
You shall most certainly be tried in your possessions and in your persons; and indeed you shall hear many hurtful things from those to whom revelation was granted before your time, as well as from those who have come to ascribe divinity to other beings beside Allah. But if you remain patient in adversity and conscious of Him – this, behold, is something to set one’s heart upon. – 3:186
He goes on to post a passage about love:
To the most beautiful person in the world, thank you for
your divine love, your eternal support and for being my
best friend. I love you so much, inshallah
we will be together in the Great Forever x
Hopefully, things get better. We’re rooting for you!! Let’s chat below!
