If you ever gave thought to Janet Jackson‘s marriage to Muslim billionaire Wissam Al Man and said to yourself that something wasn’t quite right, you just may have been on to something and didn’t know it.
According to Janet’s brother, Randy Jackson, during the marriage, Al Mana was said to be verbally abusive to Janet and made her feel like a ‘prisoner’ in her own home.
“It was quite an abusive situation,” Randy claims. “It came on later in the relationship, verbal abuse and being [made to feel like] a prisoner in her own home. No pregnant woman needs to go through being called a bitch every day. There were things like that. That’s what she went through.”
When asked for comment, Al Mana’s legal peeps say not only are the allegations not true, but they are hurtful as well.
“Mr. Al Mana is not going to dignify these particular and deeply hurtful allegations with a response. The breakdown of his marriage to Janet Jackson is a cause of great sadness to Mr. Al Mana, and it is the well-being and privacy of their son, Eissa, that remains his sole focus.”
Randy’s response was that the abuse was not physical, but he still tried to get Janet out of the situation long before she actually left.
“I told her, ‘You’ve got to move in with me or I’m going to go over there and there’s going to be hell.’ She was really pissed off. I told her, ‘I don’t care anymore. I’m tired of it. It’s too much,’ ” he says
“My mom and [sister] Rebbie came out [to London].”
“I didn’t want them to know. My parents are up there in age so I wanted to protect them as much as possible, but now they know. Everybody in the family knows.”
