The icon has such a long list of hits under her belt that it’s no surprise that she is still putting on impressive world tours. The last one was surprisingly canceled, and Janet Jackson announced it was because she and her husband, Wissam Al Mana, are focusing on having a child.
Now, the couple is divorcing and there are several rumors as to why they’re splitting. So what exactly is going on between them? Here are 10 things we know about Janet Jackson’s divorce.
1. They first separated in January 2017
The singer split from her billionaire husband after five years of marriage. The couple recently welcomed their son, Eissa Al Mana on Jan. 3, 2017, then separated a little more than a week later. Before that, Jackson announced they were trying to start a family and therefore canceled her world tour.
Jackson could get up to $200 million due to the terms of their prenup, according to Page Six. Her personal net worth is reported to be $150 million. Family sources also revealed that she would be entitled to $100 million if they were married for at least five years and according to the New York Post, she would also get another $100 million if they had a child.
Many have questioned the motive behind the split because of the huge amount of money linked to the divorce. But multiple sources close to the divorcing couple have revealed that money probably has nothing to do with the separation.
Al Mana runs Al Mana Group, which specializes in luxury goods. This is Jackson’s third marriage.
