Marriage Things: Janet Jackson Guaranteed $500m in Event of a Divorce

Janet who is engaged to Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana, has signed a prenuptial agreement that would guarantee her half a billion dollars if the couple divorce after a minimum of five years.

It is reported that Janet Jackson secretly got engaged to Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana. The couple now plans to get married during spring in Doha, Qatar in 2013. Wissam is the managing director of Al Mana Retail, which represents A/X Armani Exchange, and he’s a shareholder in the Saks Fifth Avenue.

Janet and Wissam will be wedded in a Muslim ceremony. It is rumoured that 46-year-old Janet has converted to Islam, as did her brother Michael Jackson and is choosing to keep her new religion a secret from her fans. According to Us Weekly, The 37-year-old businessman ‘gave her a huge, expensive ring’ and the 46-year-old pop star is so afraid it will get lost, ‘she keeps it locked up’.

Janet’s wealthy beau plans on sparing no expense for their spring nuptials in Qatar, and ‘he is flying in all of Janet’s friends and family on private jets.’ They will reportedly spend $3 million to fly in their 500 wedding guests from all over the world, while Wissam wants to give all attendees a $10,000 Rolex watch each as a thank you for attending.

The couple met in December of 2009 after Janet gave a special performance in the Middle East. The couple was supposedly shooting for a 2011 wedding, but they ultimately tempered their excitement and chose to hold off for a couple of years so they could have time to plan the festivities.

Janet who has been married twice, insists there is nothing wrong with dating younger men as long as the couple is happy. In 1985, she married singer James DeBarge and in 1991, she secretly married dancer, songwriter, and director René Elizondo, Jr. but the couple divorced in 2000.

Janet who was in a seven year relationship with music producer Jermaine Dupri said:

My mother always raised us to believe that age was just a number. All of us – my sisters, my brothers – we’ll just tell you our ages because it’s all about where you are mentally and how you feel about yourself. It doesn’t matter.

Janet Jackson has been dating Wissam Al Mana since 2010.
