American superstar, Janet Jackson, has split from her husband, Wissam Al Mana, whom she married in 2012, US and UK newspapers are reporting.
Jackson’s reported split from Al Mana comes three months after giving birth to her first child.
According to Daily Mail, a close friend of Jackson said, “Sadly, Janet and Wissam have decided that it wasn’t working and to go their separate ways.
“They’re both busy people but determined to be good parents, even if they’re apart. It’s amicable and Eissa will stay with his mother, who is basing herself in London.”
Page Six, meanwhile, reports that Jackson decided to take a walk when Al Mana became too controlling.
Jackson was said to be the only one making compromises in the marriage.
“She 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,” a source who works with the couple was quoted as saying.
“It drove her crazy and she felt she was losing her fan base.”
Al Mana, CEO of Al Mana business conglomerate, has an estimated fortune of around £800 million while Jackson is reportedly worth $250 million.
Eissa, their son whom they welcomed January 3, will stay with his mother in London, the report says.
Jackson has now been married three times.
Her first marriage was to singer James DeBarge in 1984 while her second husband was to Mexican dancer, Rene Elizondo.
