While it has not been officially confirmed, numerous news outlets are reporting that Janet Jackson and her billionaire husband Wissam Al Mana are calling it quits three months having their son early this year.
According to Page Six, one source said the split is amicable and the couple will co-parent their son, but others said trouble “had been brewing” for awhile.
A source who works closely with the couple told the gossip site, “[Janet] thought he had become too controlling during the pregnancy and she had already allowed him to dictate her appearance and even the way she performed at concerts.”
Other alleged conflicts included:
The singer toning down her 2014 concert tour — wearing clothing that covered her body, instead of the skin-revealing outfits fans had grown to love.
She also stopped doing music videos that feature any bumping and grinding, a source said. “It drove her crazy and she felt she was losing her fan base.”
Jackson’s growing resentment of the reclusiveness of her husband, who rarely met with her friends or family.
