US Weekly magazine is reporting that Janet Jackson and her billionaire boyfriend Wissam Al Mana are planning on getting married next year. The tabloid article reports that Janet and Wissam are newly engaged … which sounds really familiar because back in 2010, we first heard that the couple were engaged. Considering Janet’s track record with romantic relationships, it’s possible that the couple have been secretly engaged this whole time OR it’s possible that the couple have just gotten engaged and will marry soon. Hell, it’s also possible that the couple are already secretly married. But, for now, let’s focus on this latest report of an imminent wedding to come.
What has Janet Jackson’s boyfriend done for her lately? A source tells Us Weekly that Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana “gave her a huge, expensive ring” earlier this year. “She’s afraid it will get lost, so she keeps it locked up!” The luxury-brand mogul, 37, will spare no expense on his nuptials to Miss Jackson, set for spring in Qatar. The affair “will cost millions,” reveals a second Jackson insider. “He is flying in all of Janet’s friends and family on private jets.” (Quick refresher: The L.A.-based singer has seven siblings and more than 20 nieces and nephews.) Adds the source, “He wants to get a top chef to create a custom menu.” The ceremony will undoubtedly be “a circus,” another source says. The twice-wed Nutrisystem spokeswoman, 46 — who split from Jermaine Dupri in 2009 — is eager to make it official with her love of two years. “She wants kids,” says the Jackson source. “If she can’t have them, she will adopt.”
Um … yeah, I’m not sure that I really believe this happy news. While I would love for Janet to get hitched again, I don’t think we’ll know about any wedding beforehand. Yes, it’s possible that Janet and Wissam will enjoy a very large, very lavish wedding that cannot be kept secret but Janet don’t share nothing about her relationships. She managed to keep both of her marriages (first to James DeBarge and then to René Elizondo, Jr.) secret for years. She also kept news of her relationship to Jermaine Dupri super secret, too. Considering we first heard this engagement rumor back in 2010 … and now we’re hearing it again … I’m guessing people don’t know nothin’ about Janet’s love life. Let’s see if she actually does become a blushing bride next Spring. Do you think she’s finally found the one?
