Janet Jackson Quits Show Business to be a Middle Eastern Housewife

By: Ingrid Kwong You read that right! The singer secretly tied the knot with billionaire retail tycoon, Wissam Al Mana last year. Wissam, who runs Al Mana Retail with his two brothers, has built a luxury empire in the Middle East representing high-end brands such as Giorgio Armani, Hermes, Roberto Cavalli and Balenciaga. Al Mana also owns stakes in the Saks Fifth Avenue stores in Dubai, Bahrain, and Kuwait. His net worth is estimated at a whopping $1 Billion. Now, If that and charming good looks are not enough to win Janet over, Al Mana proclaims his affection for his special lady during an interview with VMAN Magazine, “I don’t date Janet Jackson. She is my girlfriend; there is a difference. She is a very special and talented woman who never ceases to amaze me.” Talk about a Prince Charming! At the age of 46, Janet has indeed found her Prince Charming and is now living in the Middle East (and has converted to Islam.) This is Jackson’s third marriage and Wissam is nine years her junior. But as the saying goes, “the third time is the charm.”   wissam-al-mana1
