EXCLUSIVE PICS: Janet Jackson's Ex Wissam Al Mana Spotted Out in London for First Time Since Split News
By Meredith B. Kile
Janet Jackson’s estranged husband, Wissam Al Mana, was spotted out in London over the weekend, amid news of the couple’s split after nearly five years of marriage.
A source confirmed to ET on Sunday that the couple -- who secretly tied the knot in 2012 and welcomed their first child, son Eissa, in January -- have split. Jackson’s rep told ABC News that “the two are not divorcing, but separating.”
In exclusive photos obtained by ET, Al Mana, a 42-year-old Qatari business magnate, was spotted outside his London home on Friday, as members of his staff brought children’s toys and balloons into the house.
The following day, an eyewitness tells ET that the couple’s 3-month-old son, Eissa, was brought over to visit with his father, but Jackson was nowhere to be seen. The couple haven’t been photographed together in recent months, and the eyewitness tells ET that the 50-year-old pop singer has recently been spotted house hunting in nearby London neighborhoods.
Last spring, Jackson decided to postpone her Unbreakable concert tour in order to devote time to starting a family. In February, her brother Jackie said that the new family of three was faring well.
"Janet had a beautiful baby boy. It's all good," he told Good Morning Britain. "Everyone's fine. Everyone's great."
