Janet Jackson Got Married…Last Year!

"Why Did I Get Married Too?" New York City Premiere - Arrivals

Talk about a well kept secret!!!

Janet Jackson has successfully kept her wedding out of the news for at least a couple of months.  Jackson, who has been married twice before (and was also very guarded with those marriages, as well), and Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana confirmed they wed last year but have kept the rest of the details to themselves.

Jackson’s publicist told Entertainment Tonight reports of an over the top and lavish wedding recently are false – because they have already been married for a while.


“The rumors regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private and beautiful ceremony,” the couple told Entertainment Tonight in a statement on Monday, Feb. 25. “Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favorite children’s charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy.”

I really appreciate how Janet stays so private with her personal life.  Not that I have anything really against those who are public with it, but with Janet, it just makes her seem so much more real – that she likes to have her public persona and who she really is separated.  As a pretty private person when it comes to matters of the heart, that’s something with which I can totally identify.
