Guess the jokes on us! While entertainment writers have been spreading tales of Janet Jackson and her billionaire boo, Wissam Al Mana,  planning a lavish wedding ceremony fit for royalty, Janet and Wissam have pulled the plug on on all of that noise, releasing a statement to ET saying no wedding is in the works because they’re already married!

According to ET, in their first joint statement as a married couple, Janet and Wissam said:

“The rumors regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony.

“Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favorite children’s charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy. With love, Wissam and Janet”

Good luck with that. Janet should know that with spreading this news, those previous rumors are just going to shift direction. Instead of people guessing what the couple would have done in what everyone thought was their upcomingwedding, the focus will now simply turn to trying to discover what went down in their private ceremony.

Kudos to the couple for keeping things private for this long, though, although Janet is no stranger to secret marriages. Her union with 37-year-old Qatar billionaire businessman Wissam is her third marriage, and the third one she’s kept under wraps. In late 1984, Janet eloped with  James DeBarge at 18 years old, but the two divorced shortly afterwards, and the marriage was annulled in mid-1985. Then in 1992, she secretly entered into her second marriage with dancer, songwriter, and director René Elizondo, Jr., which lasted eight years.

Hopefully the third time will be the charm for 46-year-old Janet Jackson, or shall I say Mrs. Al Mana? Congrats and good luck to the couple!

    hmmmm; probably when mama Jackson disappeared and no-one knew where
    she had gone; you know she wouldn’t miss her daughter’s wedding–or not…………
    probably why so many American celebs are opting to live in Europe- the ability to
    go on with one’s life—or—- maybe they aren’t checking for middle-aged, back in the day
    hot tickets……….
    could be either-or;hmmmmmmmmmmm
