Janet Jackson confirms split from Husband after 5 years and 3 months of Marriage, just after having a baby
The pair, who tied the knot back in 2012, have called time on their relationship following a five year marriage.
However, although a rep for Michael Jackson’s sister confirmed the news to ABC, they remained adamant the couple would not be “divorcing,” but instead were “separating”.
This is the first time the couple’s split has been verified, but rumours have been swirling about their break-up since the beginning of April.
According to the Mail Online, they decided to go their separate ways as their relationship is “no longer working out”.
“Sadly, Janet and Wissam have decided that it wasn’t working and to go their separate ways,” a source told the publication.
“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.”
Janet married the businessman back in 2012, in an intimate ceremony.
The 50 year old later surprised fans after confirming she was pregnant with their first child, last October.
She previously explained there would be a sudden change to the second leg of her Unbreakable tour.
