Janet Jackson has reportedly split from her husband Wissam Al Mana.

The 50-year-old singer wed the 42-year-old Qatari businessman in 2012 and welcomed their son Eissa together on January 3, 2017. A source told the Mail on Sunday: "Sadly, Janet and Wissam have decided that it wasn't working and to go their separate ways. They're both busy people but determined to be good parents, even if they're apart. It's amicable and Eissa will stay with his mother, who is basing herself in London." Jackson has been married twice before; she split from James DeBarge in 1984 after a year of marriage and her relationship with second husband, Rene Elizondo, ended in 2000, nine years after they tied the knot.

Jessica Simpson plans return to reality TV

The 36-year-old beauty (who has children Maxwell, four, and Ace, three, with spouse Eric Johnson) previously chronicled the early days of her first marriage to Nick Lachey on Newlywed, but hasn't let cameras into her home since 2005 and is now considering doing so again as she is on the lookout for a new "challenge", but doesn't want to return to singing or acting. A source said: "This is something Jessica never thought she would do again, but her life couldn't be more different than it was on Newlywed." Simpson is expected to team up with her younger sister Ashlee - who has son Bronx, eight, with ex-husband Pete Wentz, and daughter Jagger, 20 months, with husband Evan Ross - for the show, while their wider families will also appear.
