Rumours that Janet Jackson and hubby Wissam Al Mana are divorcing hit the tabloids today.

But a rep for the 50-year old singer has finally spoken out about what’s really going on.

The spokesperson confirmed to ABC News that the couple are ‘not divorcing’.

However, they are separating just three months after the birth of their son.

Jackson tied the knot with businessman Al Mana in 2012, only confirming their marriage a year later to the press.

It has only been a few months since Janet became a mom to son Eissa, yet the couple are calling it quits.

The famous pop star has kept a pretty low profile in recent years, despite living most of her life in the public eye.

She has certainly turned down her “raunchy” image since hooking up with Wissam.

Close friends believe that her hubby is responsible for the change in Janet’s ways.

Although Janet has never confirmed it, it is believed that she converted to Islam after meeting her husband.

The 42-year old businessman, who is worth around £800 million, is the CEO of Al Mana Group.

News broke over the weekend of the pair’s split, with a source close to them saying ‘it wasn’t working’.

The insider told the Mail Online,

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.

Page Six are reporting that Janet finds Wissam ‘too controlling’, which is something that got worse during her pregnancy with Eissa.
