Janet Jackson Engaged to Billionaire Beau

Janet Jackson and Wissam

According to US Weekly, Janet Jackson will be hearing wedding bells next year.

The pop star is reportedly engaged to Wissam Al Mana, a Quatari billionaire and businessman. Jackson has been dating Al Mana for the past two years. Recently the pair were spotted together being affectionate in the public eye. She’s also shared photos of herself cozied up beside her man on her Twitter page.

“I’m fortunate enough to be dating my dream woman,” Al Mana, 37, told Harper’s Bazaar Arabia last year. “I’m getting older and I feel more settled,” Jackson, 46, agreed. “We have a deep bond, a deep connection.”┬áThe recently engaged couple met in April 2010, at a hotel opening in Dubai.

In the past, the ‘Discipline’ creator has gone through her share of relationship ups and downs. Jackson was married to singer James DeBarge in 1984, but their union was annulled in mid-1985. In 1991, she secretly married Rene Elizondo, Jr., a longtime friend who was a singer, director and songwriter. They divorced in 2000, and didn’t reach a settlement until 2003. The last publicized relationship Jackson is known to have is with producer Jermaine Dupri, whom she dated for seven years. The two went their separate ways in 2009, shortly after the death of her brother Michael Jackson.

According to the Daily News, Janet Jackson and Al Mana are planning a $20 million wedding in the spring. The couple may have been engaged for almost a year, unbeknownst to the press and the public. We wish the two the best on their engagement!
