She is in charge and successful. If Janet Jackson and Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana split up, she may receive up to $200 million under their prenuptial agreement.
According to family members who spoke to The Post, she would receive $100 million if they remained married for at least five years.
Although Jackson and Al Mana’s marriage was publicized in January 2012, it’s possible that they were previously wed secretly in December 2011. Additionally, according to the prenuptial agreement, if they conceive a child—which they did three months ago with the birth of Eissa—the $100 million payment will be increased by two.
Michael Jackson’s relative stated, “It appears like a money grab, but it’s not about money,” in reference to the song “Control.” She never stays too long with a guy. She was with musician Rene Elizondo for the longest period of time, from 1991 until 2000. She dislikes getting married. She doesn’t believe marriage is a wise decision.
A longtime Jackson family security guard concurred, claiming that Janet didn’t like Al Mana’s conservative methods and that money isn’t the issue here.
A family acquaintance said, “She likes to be in charge.” She didn’t like giving up that control when she got married. She doesn’t want to be Mrs. Wissam Al Mana or the subservient Muslim wife; she wants to be Janet Jackson again.
Al Mana is estimated to be worth $1 billion by the website The Richest, so a $200 million settlement would have a significant impact on his financial situation but wouldn’t be fatal.
Al Mana Group, the husband’s business, engages in a variety of industries, including real estate, retail, technology, and others. Jackson only has a $150 million market value.
In Gary, Indiana, Janet Jackson was born on May 16, 1966. Her brothers are the renowned Jackson 5, and she is the eleventh kid overall. The Jackson family relocated to the Encino district of Los Angeles in March 1969, following the Jackson 5’s signing to a record deal with Motown.
She and her siblings debuted as performers on the variety program “The Jacksons” in 1976. This was a significant development in her show business career. Her father and manager, Joseph Jackson, secured her a recording deal with A&M Records after she appeared in a few films and TV shows, including “Good Times” in 1977 and “A New Kind of Family” from 1979 to 1980.
In 1982, Jackson released “Janet Jackson,” then in 1984, “Dream Street.” A&M Records was run by her father (1984). She ceased conducting business with her family after releasing her second album. Her third album, “Control,” which was released in 1986, featured a more mature and urban feel than her first two. “Control” was a big success. Out of a total of twelve nominations, it received six Billboard Awards, three Grammy Award nominations, and four American Music Awards.
In 1989, Jackson released her fourth album, “Rhythm Nation 1814,” demonstrating that she was a star in her own right independent of her family’s fame. It received six platinum awards from the RIAA and peaked at number one on the Billboard 200.
It was the first album in history to feature songs that debuted at the top of the charts three times. One of the most recognizable and well-liked music videos in history is the one for the song “Rhythm Nation.” Jackson became a fashion icon as a result, and the extended version of the “Rhythm Nation” music video also received a Grammy.
