Janet and Wissam Give Gift of Charity for their Nuptials

This week, news about Janet Jackson and billionaire businessman Wissam Al Mana was that they are officially married and have been since last year.  Janet confirmed it in a statement on her website to refute rumors of a multi million dollar lush and lavish celebration being planned.  In the statement, the couple ask that their “privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy.”

Janet WebThey apparently had a “quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony”.  For me, the news wasn’t that they got married in this “secret” ceremony, but that the couple who has everything (literally!) didn’t shell out millions on diamonds or watches (though they can do that too), but that their gift to one another was donations to their favorite children’s charities.

Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favorite children’s charities,” she said.

Janet has supported Janet has always kept her personal life close to the chest – as she should.  Hopefully, the third time is the charm for Janet.  This is marriage number three for her.  She was previously married to singer James DeBarge and dancer, songwriter and director Rene Elizondo Jr. Mrs. Al Mana is no stranger to the secret marriage, she kept that one a secret for nearly 10 years!
