Janet Jackson secretly says 'I do'
Posted February 25, 2013
Yes, those were wedding bells you just didn't hear.
Singer Janet Jackson secretly wed Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana last year.
"The rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony," the couple confirmed in a statement to Entertainment Tonight.
And unlike so many celebrity couples who throw flashy showers, Jackson and her beau didn't want any wedding loot, per the statement.
"Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favourite children's charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy. With love, Wissam and Janet."
Previously, Jackson dated producer Jermaine Dupri, before breaking up in 2009.
Jackson secretly married dancer, songwriter and director René Elizondo Jr. in 1991, and they divorced in 2000. Her first marriage, in 1985 to singer James DeBarge, was annulled.
