Janbot is slipping!!! - Why hasn't she announced the happy couple?
Now she has access to all the money she needs. I'm sure he's wise to the family.
Exclusive: Janet Jackson Confirms Marriage!
February 25, 2013
Rumors that Janet Jackson is planning her wedding to Wissam Al Mana have been flying fast and furious for weeks now. There's only one problem: they're already married!
In their first joint statement as a couple, Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana confirm the news exclusively to ET, saying, "The rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony."
"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"
How nice for her that the boy she fell for just happens to be a billionaire. Some people are just lucky that way.
She's telling us this because...? Oh, that's right, to get publicity for her failed career.
Good for her. I'm tired of the huge production some celebrities make about their wedding and then sell their wedding pictures to the highest bidder.
She probably cut her father a huge check and told him never to contact her again.
But she put out a picture, and is revealing this in light of wanting it private and basically secret. Give me a break. I like her Poetic Justice braids. Her new hubby looks like her second one.
Ive always liked how incredibly low key she keeps her personal life. And this guy does remind me of Rene very much.
Maybe the Janbot doesn't feel the need to remind people on a daily basis about how great she is.
Only the desperate and insecure ones do that.
[quote]Maybe the Janbot doesn't feel the need to remind people on a daily basis about how great she is.
But she felt the need to do this on an hourly, sometimes minute by minute basis last year. What happened. The sting of rejection?
Give me a chance, OP. I do have a life. But now that I'm home, online and on DL, I will be creating my OWN thread about the nuptials!
Poor Vadge must be going crazy! Janet gets herself a hot, young BILLIONAIRE husband and Vadge has to pay to get men to even come near her mean, ugly ass. The old hag is probably seething of jealousy.
Jurassic Janet gets a boy toy, big deal.
Someone needs to pay for the lap band surgery!
To paraphrase one of her former collaborators, Khia, "Get money bitch!"
I ain't mad at Mrs. Al-Mana-if-ya-nasty. Her pop career faded a decade ago and she couldn't be in Tyler Perry movies forever, and she probably grew tired of all the Hollywood/fame game bullshit considering she's pretty much worked non-stop since she was a child. I'm happy for her and they seem to be a couple generally in love.
Janet loves having secret weddings though, doesn't she? Oh well, as long as they're happy, I'm happy.
Where were they married? Because I'm guessing her access to that money is predicated on that.
R18 Exactly. At least unlike a certain other female singer who is so desperate to look cool with the kids and doesn't know that her day in the sun is long over, Janet has accepted this, bowed out gracefully, and moved on to enjoying her private life. She's been famous since she was 7 and has sold over 100 million records. She has nothing else to prove.
Congrats and enjoy your man and all that money, Janet! I know if I married a billionaire, I wouldn't ever bother working again!
Yeah, and too bad about those last two record labels firing your big fat floppy black ass.

If this is wasn't for the
amongst your own sexular, and loving Janbot
Cuntwhat the Jackson family can dealt with these couple of country assholes thankfully to you Tyler!
R22 - I would think you're trying to persecute us by telling us to ... Well, just do otherwise enterprises!!!
Congrats to Janet. I wish her all the best. Her career is over though. There's nowhere she can go from here. She can't even sell out big arenas-so I guess she'll have to stick to doing "intimate" shows in small venues catering to her cult following. I never understood why Janet gets so much disrespect and hate though. I think she deserves to be held with more reverence.In her prime, she was a much better artist and way more forward-thinking than Michael if you take the time to actually listen to her discography. She can't match Madge in success or stardom but I believe her influence is arguably more prevalent in today's stars than Madonna.
Her music is shit now but one thing I'll give Janet credit for is that she never believed her own hype. That is pretty rare for a popstar.
F&F for the racist at R21
Oh sorry R25---you mean she's not black anymore?

So what? She's already been there, done that. She has nothing else to prove and she had a good run from 86-02. NOBODY stays on top for forever. Instead of chasing the wind like certain other has-beens, she's resting on her laurels and enjoying her private life now. Why keep working if you've billionaire husband and don't need to work? I know I sure wouldn't!
Just like Oscar!
Nobody stays ontop for ever except...let's see...oh yeah! MADONNA!
$305 million touring in 2012, #1 Top Tour, 30+ year career. Nobody does it better than Madonna.
6 year Jurassic Jackson career? C'mon!
R29, Oh please. It sounds nice on paper but how much of that touring money does Madonna really get to take home? She is an elderly woman with a grueling touring schedule, and she is locked in a 360 deal. This is supposed to be the Queen of Music and she is seen as the Boss of her Empire yet she is essentially an indentured servant to Live Nation. How sad. At her age, she should be relaxing and enjoying her success (esp. after 30 years of constant jetsetting and hard work) but she is forced to be out there working like a dog for Live Nation and the demand is dying out. There were so many ticket giveaways on MDNA tour. Live Nation lost loads of money this time around. The album flopped. Madonna would have been better off doing Vegas but of course the greed and $$$ signs drew her in.
Second time she's been married for a long time before announcing it. Everyone else who tries to do things privately seem to get found out.
lol @ Jurassic Janet
That billion is not hers. She still masturbates and rides audience members on stage. She attendeds events with her floppy implants falling out. She has no class. She's still trying to steal her dead brother's money.
I wonder if she converted to Islam.
What is going on with the whole Paris vs Janet thing?
R35, Nothing happened with it. Paris is one of those overdramatic teens who always curses out her relatives on Twitter when she is mad. She bashed Janet online when Janet refused to tell her where Katherine was. Like her late father, she is a petulent brat who can't take no for an answer. The truth is Katherine allegedly had surgery for a minor stroke that weekend that she mysteriously disappeared. The rumors around Encino are that she is suffering from the first stages of dementia and her kids whisked her away didnt want to tell Prince, Paris, and Blanket about her health scare because they didnt want to worry them.
The money problems are courtesy of Randy, Jermaine, Rebbie, Tito, and Joe. They resent that those "white kids" are in line for Michael's wealth. Katherine, Janet, Letoya, Marlon, Jackie are the only ones who arent greed-consumed in that family.
I wish her the best but this has sounded fishy to me from the beginning. Those A-rabs were courting Michael in the early 2000's, thinking he was the goose who laid the golden egg- and maybe they could get some of it. They showered him with gifts and he basically disappeared one night and never went back (and never paid back). I think they had a death warrant out on him.
Cut to a few years later and now they think Janet is their conduit to MJJ's current and future millions.
Doesn't oil support them anymore?
Are you saying your ex was the limo driver during that time r36?
[quote]Nobody stays ontop for ever except...let's see...oh yeah! MADONNA!
What year are you living in? Vadge hasn't had a number 1 song in 13 years. Sad!
[quote]Jurassic Janet gets a boy toy, big deal.
It's VERY rare for a middle aged rich and famous woman to snag a guy richer than she is.
Rich guys have their pick of all the young hotties with none of the diva drama.
[quote]She bashed Janet online when Janet refused to tell her where Katherine was.
The children had a right to know where their guardian was. I imagine that there is some legal stipulation that they should be able to reach their guardian. There are certain functions that only a guardian can do for children, like signing consent for medical treatment. It isn't a small lie, especially in light of the maneuvering that was done/being done vis a vis the money. There was history there that would cause alarm to any reasonably savvy teen. Concern about issues like this are hardly the hallmark of an "overdramatic" teen.
It's not like the were six or seven when it might have been better to tell a kind lie about grandma going away for a brief rest IF the guardian made provisions for the kids to be taken care of.
Quickly FFd the racist, hatemongering HAGdonna stan at R21/R26/R29/R31. Oh, and Janet wasn't fired from her record labels, bitch. She fulfilled her landmark deal with Virgin, and she ASKED TO BE LET OUT of her Island/Def Jam deal. Get it?
R34, you're just stupid.
Janet's career is far from over. It's not over until she says it's over. She has a film production deal with Lionsgate, more acting in her future, and she's far from done with music. Whoever said her influence is more obvious in today's stars than old lady Madonna's wasn't lying, because she's clearly the influence for just about every pop diva out there today. Someone upthread also said that she's been famous since she qwas 7, which is correct. She's never been as fame-hungry as a Madonna or a Mariah, hence the reason she never put out albums back-to-back-to-back the way they used to. She didn't need it the way they did (and still do), which is a testament to the kind of person she is.
All the haters can kiss her formerly-worth-$150-million-now-worth-billions-100-million-records-sold-landmark-touring-#1-NY-Times-Bestselling-book-writing-fans-all-over-the-globe-multi-platinum-Academy-Award-nominated ass.
Can someone post the Jurassic Janet naked twat pic here again? She's been away so long we've forgotten what the heifer looked like.
[quote]Can someone post the Jurassic Janet...
I SURE hope this "Jurassic" shit isn't coming from a Grandmadonna fan considering that old bitch is 8 years older than Janet.
[quote]I SURE hope this "Jurassic" shit isn't coming from a Grandmadonna fan considering that old bitch is 8 years older than Janet.
LMAO, you can say that again! HAGdonna recently Instagrammed a close-up pic of her face, and she looked damn-near 80. Sad.
LOL, ok JANBOT, now Jurassic Janet has moved up to the net income of the BILLIONS. We love you JANBOT! There is no one else on DL worthy of our laughter and derision than you and your love affair from afar with your little chubby Janet! Give us more!!!!
R44, you forgot the answer to that Jeopardy question. No one on the panel could recall who was the answer!!
I feel bad for R47/R49--the only thing he has going for him is trolling DL threads of pop stars he's insanely jealous of.
