Let us all let out a collective sigh of relief and a “YAY!” One of my favorite entertainers is going to be a Mrs., and she will be the wife of a billionaire at that. Guess we don’t have to worry about Wissam Al Mana dating her for her money, he’s got hellas of his own. After nearly three years of dating, the couple, who can often be seen vacaying it up on boats and beaches, are looking to tie the knot in the spring, according to US Weekly. A source told the magazine that Al Mana proposed earlier in the year to the legendary singer, but that Jackson doesn’t wear her ring out, for obvious privacy reasons, and for fear that she’ll lose it. Jackson, who is 46, is said to be jumping the broom with her 37-year-old beau in a multi-million dollar event in Qatar, and Al Mana wants to fly out her extra large family. “He is flying in all of Janet’s friends and family on private jets…He wants to get a top chef to create a custom menu,” says the source.

This will be the third marriage for Jackson, who was briefly married to James DeBarge and René Elizondo, Jr. While there was random speculation and rumors that Jackson and DeBarge had a child together, both parties have refuted the claim, and Jackson has no children from her second marriage. But according to the US Weekly source, Jackson definitely wants to have children, and if she struggles to conceive, she’ll adopt.

For those who are wondering, Wissam is a wealthy luxury-brand mogul, and he’s the managing director of Al Mana Retail. Plus, Wissam is one of the most successful investors in the Middle East, having shares in everything from Saks Fifth Avenue in Dubai and many other places, to his company representing A/X Armani Exchange, as well as a slew of other luxury brands in the Middle East. Damn, Janet sure caught her a winner! After all that she’s gone through in these past few years, we wish her and her soon-to-be husband nothing but the best. But please don’t end up like these other Hollywood couples who spend more money and energy on the big day as opposed to the marriage as a whole. We love you too much for that girl!

    Congrats Janet and Wissam! Make it last.

    Janet came up during the same time as Whitney Houston, and in all honesty marrying a billionaire businessman should have been Whitney’s life. She had the total package. It saddens me that she wanted to keep it real, instead real rich. But, congrats to Janet her man is gorgeous.

    The focus on this man’s money is sadly typical and unsurprising.

    • Ms_Mara

      Typical of what (or whom), may I ask? And let’s not forget Janet is worth quite a bit. I think maybe the author is just happy Janet found someone who has their own.

    I Won’t Believe Anything these gossip blogs say, what the tabloids write or anything Until she says it from her mouth first there’s been six false reports starting from the National Enquire and always proven to be false you can’t always believe what you read. especially about Janet Jackson, without good hard solid facts and US WEEKLY and there so called sources and insider’s ain’t one of theme.

      Why can’t black women be happy for a black man exp (Michael Ealy) they way you all are happy for Janet?

      • roo08

        there are many black women happy for him and there are some black women that are upset. Just like there are some black men that are upset about Janet and others that are happy for her or don’t really care. Don’t come around painting some broad, negative brush.

        I was on of the ones who congratulated Michael Mike… I was prob the first one on that post.. Check the ref before you try to check me booooo

      • Ms_Mara

        I congratulated Mr. Ealy AND his wife. Dating outside of a color line, tan line, cheese line, makes no difference to me.
