From ET! Online:
In their first joint statement as a couple, Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana confirm the news exclusively to ET, saying, “The rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony.”“Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favourite children’s charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy. With love, Wissam and Janet”
Now are we really surprised by this news? Janet has always been extremely private with matters of the heart. Jackson secretly married her first husband, James DeBarge when they were both teenagers. The marriage was annulled a year later. Janet then went on to marry her 2nd husband, Rene Elizondo in secret as well in 1991. That’s just how she does it! And you can’t do anything but respect it.
I wish I could have seen her all dolled up in wedding attire but oh well, congrats to the beautiful couple!
