Janet Jackson confirms speculation of divorce

It appears that the marriage between legendary musician Janet Jackson and her husband, Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana, is over. It had previously been reported that Jackson and her estranged husband Al Mana were last seen in June leaving a courthouse in London, England. It is believed that the two separated shortly after the birth of their child, half a year ago. Jackson is 51 and Al Mana is 42.

Jackson confirmed the breakup, stating that she and her husband had separated. They still maintain a strong friendship and plan on co-parenting throughout their son's childhood, despite the separation. Jackson was recently spotted in New York City for business meetings regarding her upcoming tour. She had her child in tow, a 6-month-old son.

Although it is unclear whether Jackson has a prenuptial agreement with Al Mana, such a high asset divorce could still prove to be complicated. Both sides have presumably various and substantial business assets and real estate properties as well as a high net worth. One can hope that the decisions regarding their property division will be relatively free of serious issues.

People on the verge of divorce may want to speak with a lawyer familiar with family law and divorce to make certain that their assets are protected and that the property division procedure is addressed fairly. Emotions often run high during a divorce and it is not uncommon for people to not consider their own best interests while in court. Law professionals representing them can help assure that their best interests are met and that decisions that are reached are wise and fair for all parties involved.
