Janet Jackson Breaks Silence, Reveals What Marriage to a Muslim Was Really Like

Famous singer Janet Jackson has just revealed something that many people have known for a while: Being married to an traditionalist Muslim is all about one thing Submission.

“Her life was sheltered,” one Jackson family member told Us Magazine. Janet’s brother Randy also elaborated that the famous female singer was verbally abused by her Qatari husband.

“Janet felt like a prisoner,” Randy Jackson told the celebrity magazine.

The billionaire Wissam Al Mana reportedly preyed on Janet’s vulnerabilities after the death of her incredibly famous brother. Wissam Saleh Al Mana is a Qatari business magnate who is the executive director of Al Mana Group,a Qatar-based conglomerate operating primarily in the GCC region. The group activities include automotive distribution and services, real estate and investments, retail, food & beverage, engineering, technology, media, and entertainment. Operating over 300 outlets, Al Mana represents brands covering most areas of retail including luxury goods, beauty, fashion, home interiors, watches and jewelry.

At first, the singer was enamored by the lifestyle of nearly unlimited money in the Middle East… but that fairy tale quickly became a nightmare.Al Mana soon began to insist that Janet Jackson act like a traditional Muslim wife.
“She started to wear burkas — full-length, loose-fitting outer garments — and to steer clear of her former confidants,” revealed Us Magazine.

As a traditional Muslim wife, Jackson could also have expected to be beaten if she got out of line. This is because the Qur’an says:

Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them. (4:34)

During her five-year marriage to Qatari business tycoon Wissam Al Mana — she confirmed their separation in May — Jackson “felt hidden from family and friends”.
