What The What ???
Rob Shuter tells Fox 5 News that Jackson is moving to the Middle East and is
converting to Islam.
“As fans all around the world collectively clutch their pearls, reports are sur-
facing that you may NEVER see Janet Jackson’s abs, boobs or Poetic Justice
braids again. Apparently, after secretly marrying her hot billionaire husband,
Wissam Al Mana, Ms. Jackson…if you’re Nasty…made the made the decision
to walk away from Hollywood. And now supposedly this chick went and con-
verted to Islamic culture.
A source told Showbiz 411, “She’s gone. She married a billionaire. They’ve got
houses in three countries. She’s spending time in the Middle East. She’s be-
come a Muslim.”
If you think about it, it makes perfect sense that the True You author Janet,
who’s had her life in the hands of critics and gossip columnists since she was
a kid, would opt for a quiet opulent life. And we can’t even be mad about it…a
billionaire and your life becoming one big vacation away from the foolishness
that sometimes overtakes this industry? Slightly jealous now that we think
While Justin Timberlake is seeing the best sales of his career, it could be argued
that America never really embraced Janet after the nipplegate debacle at Super-
bowl 2004. Her music career became a snooze fest, she had to downgrade her
concert tours from arenas to concert halls and no one in Hollywood came call-
ing (except Tyler Perry).
But it doesn’t look like Janet is planning to go completely into hiding…at least
not yet. From the looks of it, she’ll remain dedicated to her causes, such as fund-
raising for AIDS research with amFAR. She recently tweeted about an auction
for fans to spend time with her at the Cannes Film Festival in May to raise
money for the foundation.”
