It’s over for Janet Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana. The two, who married in 2012, are said to be parting ways due to cultural disagreements on how to raise their son. Back when they got married, there was speculation she converted to Islam, and she was seen strolling with him in London in October in head-to-toe coverage. Friends says she “absolutely loves” motherhood, but a pal announced yesterday that the two were splitting up. “Sadly, Janet and Wissam have decided that it wasn’t working and to go their separate ways.” The Daily Mail reports that a clash of cultures was the root cause of their split, which intensified once baby Eissa was born. Wissam reportedly has strict views on how his son should be brought up, and hired staff to wait on Janet and their son. The baby was never seen in public and Janet was reportedly forbidden from leaving the home while nursing. “Janet thought he had become too controlling during the pregnancy,” a source states. “She had already allowed him to dictate her appearance and even the way she performed at concerts.” Apparently the final straw was when her mother had to return to Los Angeles after a visit because he lost interest in having her there. This marks the third marriage for Janet, after she first married singer James DeBarge in 1984, and then to Rene Elizondo in 1991, who received $8 million as a settlement of their messy divorce in 2000.
