NEW YORK (AP) — Janet Jackson knows how to keep a secret: The singer has been married since last year.

A representative for Jackson confirmed Monday that the musician and Wissam Al Mana wed last year.

This is Jackson’s second secret marriage. She secretly married Rene Elizondo Jr. in 1991. They separated in 1999.

The 46-year-old Jackson first tied the knot when she was 18 to singer James DeBarge, which lasted three months in 1984.

In a joint statement to Entertainment Tonight, Jackson and Al Mana said their wedding was a “quiet, private and beautiful ceremony.”

The couple also said they would like privacy and “are allowed this time for celebration and joy.”

    Janet knows how to keep a secret-but she better be cautious. Arab men view women as chattel
    no matter how much of a dowry they bring to the marriage. It just shows again that something went awfully wrong with the Jackson clan. Stay safe janet-remember La Toya’s experience with marriage
    and her husband did not even have the money resources and energy and contacts yours has.

Go for the man who doesn’t worry about money cause he’s got lots of it! Be blessed my sisters!
