What did Janet Jackson expect when she married a billionaire Muslim? According to reports, Jackson is looking to divorce her husband due to his controlling behavior.
Jackson said she tolerated her husband’s oppression at first, but finally had enough after he continued to get more and more controlling.
“She thought he had become too controlling during the pregnancy and she had already allowed him to dictate her appearance and even the way she performed at concerts,” the source who works closely with the couple said.
Others said Jackson felt forced to change the way she dressed and acted while on tour.
“It drove her crazy and she felt she was losing her fan base.”
Since giving birth, Jackson has put on 100 pounds and she has been spotted numerous times in full Muslim garb.
A friend of Jackson commented on the divorce rumors.
“Sadly, Janet and Wissam have decided that it wasn’t working and to go their separate ways,” they said. “They’re both busy people but determined to be good parents, even if they’re apart. It’s amicable and Eissa will stay with his mother, who is basing herself in London.”
This was Jackson’s third marriage. Her first marriage was to singer James DeBarge in 1984, but they split after one year, while her second marriage was with Mexican back-up dancer Rene Elizondo.
