After dating for two years, R&B diva Janet Jackson (pictured) is finally getting hitched again and this time it’s to a man who is loaded. The lucky man is Qatari millionaire Wissam Al Mana (pictured), according to the US Weekly.
Al Mana, 37, gave Jackson a “huge expensive ring” earlier this year according to published reports, but she was terrified of misplacing it so it was kept in a vault.
The nuptials are expected to take place sometime next spring in Qatar. US Weekly states that the wedding “will cost millions” and that Jackson’s friends and family will be flown in “on private jets.” An unidentified source also told the magazine that Al Mana, “wants to get a top chef to create a custom menu.”
Jackson, who is 46-years-old, has been married twice before: once to singer James DeBarge from 1984 to 1985 and then to dancer/songwriter Réne Elizondo from 1991 to 2000.
Al Mana, who is worth a reported $200 million, has built his net worth as managing director of Al Mana Retail and is one of the richest investors in the Middle East. He is a shareholder in the Saks Fifth Avenue stores in Dubai, Doha, Bahrain and Kuwait. Al-Mana’s company, Al Mana Luxury Company, represents A/X Armani Exchange and other luxury brands.
As far as any children in the couple’s future, the source told US Weekly that Jackson definitely wants some of her own.
Congrats you two!
