Janet Jackson is moving on!

A source close to the family tells ET that the singer is "back in control" after splitting from her husband, Wissam Al Mana, just a few short months after the welcoming their first child together.

"They are amicable," the family friend says of the duo's co-parenting dynamic for son Eissa. "Janet hates mess just like Michael [Jackson] did and would have preferred to keep the split as quiet as possible."

News broke earlier this month that Jackson and Al Mana, who wed in 2012, had called it quits. The source says the split came after conflict arose between Jackson's family and the Qatari billionaire.

"She couldn't stay in the marriage," the source explains.

Now, Jackson seems to be leaning on her family -- specifically, brother Randy Jackson, who also resides in London -- as she navigates her next chapter. The siblings were spotted out together enjoying a Bruno Mars concert in Birmingham, England, earlier this week.

"As the babies of the family, they have an unbreakable bond," the family friend explains. "She trusts him more than anyone."

Meanwhile, Al Mana is proving that he still has love for the mother of his child, penning an open letter to her on his website earlier this month.

"To the most beautiful person in the world, thank you for your divine love, your eternal support and for being my best friend," he wrote. "I love you so much, inshallah we will be together in the Great Forever."
