Janet Jackson's a pro at keeping a secret.
According to her rep, the 46-year-old entertainer is married to Wissam Al Mana, and she has been for a while.
As "Entertainment Tonight" reports, their wedding happened months ago.
"Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony," the married pair said to "ET" in a statement regarding speculation that they were planning an "extravagant wedding."
"Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favourite children’s charities," they continued in their statement. "We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy."
Jackson's union with Al Mana marks her third; she was previously wed to James DeBarge and René Elizondo, Jr. Jackson secretly married Elizondo in 1991 and they split in 2000.
SHE STAYS ON THE CHAIN...ALL ON RIGHT?
I just wanna be the hands on her album cover!
HACKS ALL MONITORED......SHE IS "NOT RIGHT IN THE CABESA"
Hold up now! I've always liked Janet and to call her old! and Ugly? Janet Jackson is far from being ugly. Okay she made a mistake almost 10 years ago! get up off her! I think she always played herself with marrying low rated guys, and should of been married someone like this guy long ago!
FACT; HONEYMOON OVER, NOW LOOK WHAT SHE HAS GOTTEN YOURSELF INTO.....
BEAUTIFUL ON THE OUTSIDE THEN YOU LEARN THE UGLY SECRETS ON THE INSIDE....
WHERE WERE HER FRIENDS WHEN SHE DECIDED TO DO THIS?
WHERE WERE HER PAID LEECHES? I SAW A PICTURE OF HER DRESS ALL IN BLACK
SHE LOOKED SO UNCOMFORTABLE, ASHAMED...TRYING TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE HER
GET-UP WAS IN STYLE....DO PEOPLE LOVE MONEY THAT MUCH.. SELL OUT
What the hell are you talking about. lol are you mad the two of them opted out of a media frenzy wedding & are happy togther. What doe sit matter if hes amulti- billionaire?
Look – garbage married a terrorist. Yay.
I think it's really beautiful, that they gave each other gifts of money to children's charities. What an amazingly thoughtful thing to do. Other famous people should follow in their footsteps and make it public , so that others will be encouraged to do the same. There are so many children suffering everywhere, we must be more generous.
AS LONG AS YOU PUT IT OUT THERE....MOVE ALONG...
because of Janet's -- talk about captain obvious
To all of you that are writing the hate messages, you should be a shamed. You all talk as if the gossip you read is true.
You don't really know her so stop presenting you do. There are 2 sides to every story. What make you the judge?
Janet, I pray that you know God so that what these fools are say mean nothing to you. Give God the glory and love the man with your whole heart! Ask God to lead and guide your life.
fun times ahead
the fact the guy made it this long is a miracle...
oh man she must be the most boring person on the planet no personality,,,
that could have known part of the package information.....
What's with the secrecy. Sounds more like a PR stunt AGAIN! Who cares who she marries.
Talk about bad 'group think', and mentally deprived/depraved cyberbullying. I don't want to hear about your "Freedom of Speech" when it was abundantly clear of the elitist, classist, racist rhetoric is void of any sense of compassion. Here's a prayer -a PRAYER, people- that God is never this dismissive of the values of your lives.
Really, get a life. God is for the righteous ...not the righteously indignant... Get the difference.
He's the favorite not janet-anyone who supports her concerts is because of him not Janet...
agreed-janet is a piece of work and needs too figure out HER problems before she can help other....
the guy–he is a number 1 in our book and we support hime 100% also...he is loved by everyone and we love too see him everyday.
we support janet's husband 100% and why because he is loved by everyone and his fans adore him and will always adore him..unlike Janet who everyone can't stand. i do not see the marriage lasting either simply on the basis of jane't evil way...men get bored with that and wind up seeing others.
I cannot stand janet jackson....i've said this for 10 years now. i give the marriage less then 2 more years.
Janet? sorry is not good in our book....this guy is number one and she uses him unfortunately....i can't see the marriage lasting that long due to janet's doing...we love and support the guy she's marrying but i do not feel janet will change becasue her repuation stinks in hollywood.
Janet sorry no good i our book....this guy is number and she uses him unfortunately....i can't see the marriage lasting that long due to janet's doing...we love and support the guy she's marrying but i do not feel janet will change becasue her repuation stinks in hollywood.
we all feel the same way....her head should stay down and be thankful she is married too a wonderful man who everyone loves and supports all of hollywood adores him and we continue to support him because he works hard and treats everyone the best he can!
janet jackson needs too quit digging a hole for herself...she's well hated in the industry its unfortunate she is marrying a wonderful...he will get the ideal soon enough–
you need to stop hating on janet! hollywood is overated, everyone sleeping with everyone. and every since her breast fell out her clothes. hollywood fell out!! let her be happy and enjoy her marriage, it will last take it from her last marriage.
YEA SO YOUR POINT–DESPERATELY SEEKING SUSAN?
she is not a canine..she is an embarrassment fool and everyone continues to hate her...my advise is too keep your head down at this point
Janet is stupid ,she is washed up ,that entire family are a bunch of weirdos...she old stupid ugly and had to marry someone rich ...you ignorant fool ,why keep it a secret ,it was'nt a secret when you wanted to be famous ..grow up you idiot
i agree she is washed up and looks it also.....and everyone hates her guts at this point...i would hide at this point if i were her....
Always good when you can say, "She always keeps her marriages secret." Ideally one wouldn't have so many that this becomes a trend...

"you can take the kid form the ghetto ,but you can't take the ghetto from the kid " is soo true!
make the decision and figure out what the problem is, then from there you can help you as person k?
Coming out of the Jackson family what do u expect to see something normal?
Explain why you think that having a quiet/private wedding is not normal ?
Makes me doubt how normal you are.
Perhaps you would have preferred a huge fake spectacle like Kim Kardashian? Just congratulate Janet and her hubby and let them enjoy their lives.

Janet has a history of secret marriages! They were All secret & most people didn't even know she was married til she announced her divorces! That's how Janet rolls, y'all! Hope this 1 lasts & she's happy! Congrats, girl! Now, how bout some new music??
Congrats Janet & Wissam!
In the pictures she is happy, he is not. Deja vu of Britney Spears buying herself a husband.
Are you kidding?!? He's a multi-billionaire, worth waaaay more than she is.
I would hardly think she has to buy a husband, especially this one, seeing as he's a Billionaire.
I don't care what janet jackson does, or any of the jackson family for that matter, I am tried of hearing about any of them, they are all out for money because,Janet jackson only married this man for his money, in hollywood these people never marry for love it's a money thing, I give the marriage year to end.
So then what was the point of reading the article and then commenting on it...just curious.
Janet has always been linked to men who had fewer funds than she. She has plenty of money of her own; is in it for love.
PlanetJackson[dot]net The net's premiere destination for Michael Jackson fans.
She didn't tell anyone? Good, because I didn't want to know.
Who cares..really. Who ?
@Poohsmom,apparently you do...you posted a comment
Why do we expect them to report to us? It's their personal business, private life.
Happy for you Janet. Stop hatin on Janet. If a billionaire ask any of you to marry him/her, you know you would marry him/her as well.
Who the hell cares? Leave her alone. Christ almighty!
For a brief second when viewing him from a small picture I thought he was White. She never would have heard the end of that. LOL
Why would that matter? The Jackson have had many, many interracial unions and are now a multiracial melting pot family. He would be welcomed with open arms no matter his race or ethnicity.
Congratulations to both. Let's move on.
Wonder if she was married to the billionaire when she was letting her mother's house go into receivership – which the MJs estate discovered it was Just before Michael died.
Wonder if she was married to this billionaire when she was housing her dad in her Las Vegas house and trying to get the MJs estate to pay all her dads fees including toilet paper saying that her mom visited once in awhile
'Janet Jackson wed and didn't tell us'
Is there some new law that says she legally had to? Contrary to your own opinion, the press is not god.
...and it is making news now why?!
To try and fix her image? sell a record?
next month !! all about the divorce !!
Fidels Unilaterial ColiationKlan.
Thank you Janet Jackson for getting married and not telling us, please notify the rest of Hollywood, especially the K trash, we don't really care......
Why is this a big deal? She always keeps it a secret when she gets married. Either to protect her privacy or for the attention or both. Strange family. Thats for sure.
Good for her. I wish the stalwart groom and the blushing bride who doesn't really matter anymore in an entertainment industry sense the best!
what is he anyway???
Human. The man is human. I'm not sure if you have seen one of those human beings lately. Mind your damn business lol.
im not sure,but he could take some of that money and get that black spot taken off his face...i mean the one on his right cheek,not the girl.
dear sure why not....stuff it,you probably are not one.
Wissam Al Mana is businessman with a net worth of $1 billion
I am replying to @dear sure why not. Clearly, I have a good grasp of the English language, seeing how I am excellent at starting a proper sentence to respond to an adult name caller. I don't see many adult name callers. I guess at some point they grow up and have better things to do with their lives. Are you one of those people? You are probably not. I do my best to surround myself with dignified individuals. Congratulations on getting a little more educated. Have a great day.
damn. that is a switch...getting married without having a brat first...the world has ended..
i just don't think he's good looking enough for her. as a matter of fact i don't think he's good looking at all.
You're the type of person who comments on what a reporter is wearing while planes are crashing into buildings behind him.
like the man already said...ti's what she sits on and what he has in his bank account...after that nothing matters...she aint from the best family background...ask SUREWHYNOT he knows everything....
He looks like he's worth a billion dollars. Is that good looking enough for you?
STFU BEFORE YOU LOOK MORE STUPID THEN YOU ALREADY DO....
I'D LIKE TO DO HER
use 2 rubbers,and 3 bags...
im sure they both saved themselves until they found each other....... (:
Janet is at the back side of her career. I am not sure anybody outside of her immediate family really cares that she remarried. I wish her and husband #3 well. I hope she finally finds contentment.
AAARRRRRGGGHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHO GIVES A SHI* WHO SHE MARRIES???????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
im on your side...
Eloquent in its obscure brevity.
If you don't care, why did you click on it and take time out of your life to blog? Wow, talk about a contradictary action and kind of hypocritish, if you will.
Marriage made simple in the west especially this day when you can enter and exit marriages as vechicles. Thing that suppose to be holy in nature. May God help us.
And may God bless your English teacher for trying his/her best to no avail.
Agree, sista is confused, sad. And Al Qaida dude looks the same. Keep running child!
You're a genius!! You can diagnose someone from a photo/internet story!!! You missed your calling!
What do you think she is confused about?
sista????isnt that SISTER???...haven't you folks done enough to ruin english....i think so...dummie.
Walter – When people ay words like 'sista' and whatnot, they usually turn out being a 'mista sista' if you get what I am saying. Or in your language it is translated as: "Sheeee chump ain't want no talk likethat. Know what I'm sayin'? My momma didn't raise no dummy. I dug her rap."
Her nose is starting to look like Michael's. Who cares if she's on husband number 3 and counting. She's obviously confused.
Your another person who also thinks Janet is confused. Confused about what?
Noses tend to confuse lots of people. I remember my last day at college. There was one professor who I admired for his intellect and mental prowess. He was an amazing guy. I decided, "You know...I bet he has been asked this question before", so I went to him and before I could even open my mouth he said, "If it is about noses, I have no clue." It was then I realized that noses will always be a mystery right up there with the beginning of the universe and thumbs.
Oh no, how could she not tell us! Let them be, so she got married, that is her business. I hope they are happy.
i hate it when u all critisize one another on some one elses life did janet do any thing to yall hell no... U r bullying a womens life around when yall need to live your own and let janet live hers... And mind your own and stay out of what dont belongs to u... By the way take a look in the dam mirror point blank
I'm not seeing much criticism...just mostly a few jokes and people not really giving a rats a$$ about it.
you must be of a darker shade of people. Stand by her and hold her hand.
Anybody who uses "yall" in a sentence,
sounds like an uneducated Redneck hick.
Was that your intention ?
Do you really blame her for not telling PRIVATE things? Bah. Get over it.
Janet landed herself a billionaire. Good for her, I guess. Like others have said, if you wanted your privacy, why announce it now when you got married last year? Does somebody need some limelight? Just kind of strange.
She did not announce it. Her publicist answered a question regarding rumors that she was getting married.
Maybe she should fire her publicist, then. What a bunch of garbage. If she didn't want the news out there, it wouldn't be released. Looking for a little free publicity, I think.
She announced now because the media has gotten information concerning the marriage. They decided to announce it themselves. Good luck Janet. I hope this works for you. As far as paying her parents debts why should she. You people need to get a life. She does not have to tell the public anything. If you don't like her don't go to her concerts and buy her records. I personally think she does not care about the low breed people who make unnecessary comments concerning her life. I wonder what kind of life some of you have.
"Respect their privacy?" Narcissist much? They have been married since last year and only now telling us. Janet, if you were any bit still relevant, the media would of exposed this "marriage" months ago. I have to laugh at this!
I don't think you understand narcissism. Had she been a narcissist she would have done something like Star Jones which would have been a big hoopla of an announcement and then trying to capitalize on her wedding by using advertisers and going onto every talk show to talk about every detail of her wedding.
I'm not sure what you are laughing at exactly, but her asking for privacy does not equate narcissism.
I laugh at YOU for thinking that it was a necessity for her to say anything about her life to the public.
Umm.. Can you put out a new song or two??? Just sayin... Kind of bored with the Jacksons...
Bristol Palin has mayonaise breath.
May your first child be a masculine one! i wish u peace and happiness god bless!
Maybe the 3rd one will take. Many years of happiness to you both!
It wasn't your business... probably why she didn't let you know.
too bad at 46 no child, pls if u can pls just one is ok dont come emply and return emply and keep dis one forever age
keep moving–you can't wire so good.
Boy, she is just like Farrah Faucet....... She will look good into her 60s. And I watched her on "GoodTimes". And I can still see the little girl..........
Well, judging from how stunning Mrs. Katherine Jackson still is then Janet will look beautiful forever.
she got the f....kitty karlyle at large...low benefit joke–whoever that was.
she got the f....kitty is always al large.
She married a billionaire and this is just now coming out. Media you get a big fat F for this. Hope she is happy and that she will finally have some kids.
jackie jackson is the one for me he looks like a football player
people have feelings all the time...so what....
I have one word-Adultery. In the sight of God, she is still married. And WHY in the name that is all that is holy would she get married...again?!
its not our problem...its janet's
does not justify hacking into peoples lives–learn some character–your just not good at it.
How would you know who saw what?
She sure looks a lot different in this picture than she did during that "wardrobe malfunction"!
I wonder what its like marrying a woman that practically every man in America saw that?
who cares!!! u act like no Boobs r abnormal!!! grow up!! wish them both n their families the best!!n i really doubt she needs anybody's money!
You DO realize that was over a decade ago, right?
your aint good at it...
Yay Janet, since you can't have MJ's money...so let clean up this Arab dude's bank account. But Let me tell you something, the Arab billionaires are smarter than you think when it comes to money.
Yes it's true, she better starts wearing hijab and stays submissive to him. hahaha :)
and she needs to work on her "issues" and herself as a woman. she can't even hear well either.
she doesn't have mj's money...his mother has the money.
she doesn't have mj's money...his mother has his money.
What makes you think she needs Michael's money? She's doing just fine on her own, hope I look as good as she does at 46.
Um...I didn't want to be the one to tell you this,but out of all the Jacksons,SHE is the one who had been touring,putting out records and doing movies for the last 20 years;SHE is the last person in that family who needs -anyone's- money. In fact,several commenters were getting on her for not paying bills her family accrued and stuff. Where is THEIR money?
cOnGrAts 2 U mS.jAcKsOn HoPiNg He'S tHe 1 FoR U!!! :-D
janet congratulate,,as long u are happy wit him,,dnt regret doing what make u happy,, wish u good luck nd happy married life,
janet jackson i congratulate u,as long u r happy wit him,, nd anythn that make u happy dnt regret it doint,,good luck
Cant believe she did that. Just 4da billions
Y? I think she made a mistake. Is she muslim? Or becoming one. Y janet y?
Whether he's muslim or not, not everyone with an arab sounding name is muslim oh genius one...
I would like to wish Mrs. Jackson and Mr. Mana a very joyous marriage. I had to (correct) check that I didn't want to exclude anyone being a REAL fan! Lol .... enjoy .... Peace !
Glad to see out of all the people in the United States she decided to marry a man whose family has terrorist family ties. Way to go Mrs. Jackson. Yeah I am Nasty.
Don't take it personally, Wissam. She kept it secret when she was married to me, too.
Toni baloney is right. U werent notified-all events r 1 yr. Behind your approval. It's her personal life. If anyone had one u would understand why.
I never reported my marriage and divorce either. I kind of forgot to alert the media. Forgive and forget, makes life easier and we all move on.
Well, I guess he makes enough to keep her in plastic surgery.
Janet is really good at keeping secrets. Now I'm starting to wonder if she does have a child. In any case, happy for her.
What business is it of ours to begin with? Why should we even care and why should we be "notified?"
Who's notifying you? You came here to the entertainment section and went spelunking for articles. If you wanted something a little more lofty, you should have gone to the Business section.
Janet i fear for you. I saw u covered up and walking behind him like he rules over u. Dont b subservient too late now.ur married. Oh woe is u.
just because one jackson screwd up doesnt mean they all will. Eather way janet congrats dont mind others retarded remarks only thing that should matter is your heart is full filld. Ps. The world is never happy no matter what u do. Good luck and remain happy janet u owe your self that much
I wonder if she will have another secret kid that she will keep hidden.
Good Luck !
but she's not good at it....
here kittie cat
I thought i saw a pootie cat
I guess the cat got the rat
we got that months ago.
They should have kept it a secret. We don't care.
She was asked. She answered. Get a grip.
"We would appreciate that our privacy is respected ...." who gives a c r a p ! Why did they have to announce it now anyone
I wondered the same thing.

Qatar is not going to uphold any pre nup and he's already said that love is like the seasons, they change often. It won't last long.

You most be a troll! Nobody in their right mind could possibly believe that garbage! Besides, what does that have to do with Janet Jackson? Loser troll.
That was by the most awesome rant I heard. Don't Ya Know
That's a joke, right?
It's hard to believe that anyone could be that stupid, so it must be a joke.
Ha ha. Good one.
You're a clown.
Is that the road to heII? You teabagger nut jobs can just follow her down that road all you want. Good riddance!
Hey......people pay good money to look like that.
