Janet Jackson marries for third time to Qatar billionaire



Janet Jackson is officially married -- again. What a minute. We thought she was still married to '80s hero James DeBarge! (Nope, that was annulled WAY back in 1985.)

The new future ex-husband's name is Wissam Al Mana, and reports describe him as a "billionaire businessman." (Those are probably the best kind.)  And oddly enough, their marriage isn't new but was something that happened last year. It was only confirmed by Janet on her official website today: 

"The rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true," she writes. "Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony. Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favourite children’s charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy. With love, Wissam and Janet"

In case you're wondering about the unusual name, Wissam is from Qatar. This is Janet's third marriage.
