It looks like Janet Jackson will not be having a $20 million wedding after all!

According to reports Janet Jackson has revealed that she married her billionaire Qatari boyfriend Wissam Al Mana last year.

Wissam is the managing director of Al Mana Retail, which represents A/X Armani Exchange, and he's a shareholder in the Saks Fifth Avenue.

A statement was posted on Janet Jackson's Twitter page: "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."

 

The couple got engaged in 2011 after Wissam, a Qatari billionaire whose family has extensive reaches in the real estate and media spheres, proposed to Janet with a 15 carat diamond ring.

This is Janet's 3rd marriage, she secretly married Rene Elizondo Jr. in 1991. They separated in 1999. And she married James DeBarge in 1984, and the marriage was annulled a year later.

Reports also claim that Janet and Wissam married in a Muslim ceremony. Turkish author, Adnan Oktar (aka Harun Yahya), is also making the claim that Janet Jackson has converted to Islam as did her brother, Michael Jackson and is choosing to keep her new religion a secret from her fans. But these reports have been neither confirmed nor denied by the couple.
