According to some rumors, there are many reasons for the delay of Janet Jackson‘s third marriage and one of them is the pre-nup. Recently, Jackson and Al Mana made a mutual statement and said:
“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.”
