The couple welcomed their first child together, a baby boy named Eissa Al Mana, just months ago on January 3, 2017.
'Sadly, Janet and Wissam have decided that it wasn't working and to go their separate ways, ' a source close to Janet has claimed.
Though the pop star has been notoriously private with her personal life, there were reports that her now ex-husband Wissam Al Mana convinced her to convert to Islam sometime after they were married.
The 50-year-old singer Wednesday the 42-year-old Qatari businessman in 2012 and they welcomed their son Eissa, together on January 3, 2017, but it has been claimed that their marriage is now over. Janet continues to live in London with their son Eissa, who was born in January.
The pair's divorce may, as the Daily Mail suggest, become messy as Al Mana, 42, is "estimated to have a fortune of around £800million - at least four times Ms Jackson's net worth".
In February, a source told PEOPLE that Jackson and her new baby boy are doing "really good", and that "she absolutely loves" motherhood.
Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana have called it quits.
There were rumours of a split within days of her son's birth, when she was seen in public without a wedding ring but these were discounted at the time.
It was reported she gained up to 100lbs (7 stone) during her pregnancy. The source didn't give exact details as to why the singer and multi-millionaire threw in the towel on their 5-year marriage, but it sounds like conflicting schedules was one of the reasons. Maybe it's my fault it never works.
