The pop icon and the Qatari businessman made a decision to call it quits after five years of marriage, and shortly after welcoming their newborn son, Eissa Al Mana, allegedly because Al Mana was trying to take charge of too many aspects of Janet's life.
Entertainment Tonight reports that "Jackson apparently began house hunting in February, shortly after her 86-year-old mother, Katherine, arrived in London".
The postponement of the singer's 36-stadium Unbreakable world tour had been attributed by some commentators to contentment with her marriage and new baby. "She often felt she disappointed Wissam". Two years later, they got engaged and have since kept their relationship fairly private.
"Janet had a lovely baby boy". Thankfully, the pop icon and newborn are healthy and happy.
Now, here's the big question: will Jackson, herself a multi-millionaire, walk away with some of her husband's considerable wealth? "Janet believed that her husband was very oppressive during her pregnancy had prevented telling her how to dress and the way she ought to appear at concerts", confided a source close to Jackson. She has great doctors.
The singer-songwriter moved to London for her husband so they could "live under strict Muslim custom, which included prohibiting the new mum from being seen in public while nursing the baby". "She is so excited to be a mom".
Reps for Janet Jackson had no comment on the matter.
