Janet Jackson got more than she bargained for this Christmas…including a GIGANTIC ring from her boyfriend, Wissam Al Mana.
The luxury-brand mogul, 37, will make their two-year romance official, sparing no expense on his nuptials to Miss Jackson, set for spring in Qatar. Sounds like a fun event, and one that is much-anticipated. Don’t believe me? Ask these sources close to the power couple…
The affair “will cost millions,” reveals a Jackson insider. “He is flying in all of Janet’s friends and family on private jets.” (Quick refresher: The L.A.-based singer has seven siblings and more than 20 nieces and nephews.)
Adds the source, “He wants to get a top chef to create a custom menu.”
The ceremony will undoubtedly be “a circus,” another source says.
All right, you’ve convinced me. Now I want an invite! As you may know, the twice-wed Nutrisystem spokeswoman, 46, was married to Jermaine Dupri in 2009 and is eager to start a family.
“She wants kids,” says the Jackson source. “If she can’t have them, she will adopt.”
I have every reason to believe this songstress will get EVERYTHING she wants out of life. Congrats to the newly engaged couple!
The Obama Administration is asking the Supreme Court to decide whether or not CBS should be fined $550,000 for controversial wardrobe malfunction during the Super Bowl halftime show of 2004.
Last year, the courts ruled in favor of CBS, saying that the Federal Communications Commission as acting out of line (as they never fined anyone before this event for the odd nipple-slip). The Supreme Court has to now suss out if the FCC’s policies “violate the free speech rights of broadcasters airing profanity and sexual content, both in live and scripted form,” according to Perez Hilton.
Who ever thought that this event would bring on such a long and arduous legal battle? The case won’t be reviewed until fall- but if it does go to court, that will be early next year. Wow, 9 years of nipple! Kind of makes you nostalgic for the early 2000′s…
Janet Jackson is the latest celebrity to hit the net with her special It Gets Better message to at-risk youth.
“I know that sometimes life can seem insurmountable, especially in your teen years,” she says.
“And if you’re lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, you’re probably thinking you’re all alone. But you’re not.
“There’s a world of acceptance waiting for you. I can relate, because I was one of those kids who internalized everything – I held everything inside. All of my pain. And I didn’t release it, I wasn’t able to get it go until I finally met that person who I could trust and who was truly willing to listen.”
Janet Jackson met boyfriend Wissam Al Mana when she performed at an event in the middle east last December.
The 35 year old billionaire (he’s 10 years her junior!) whisked Janet away for a romantic break in Sardinia this summer. Friends of Janet’s credit him with helping her cope with the death of her brother, Michael Jackson.
Wissam is director of Al Mana Retail, a shareholder in Saks Fifth Avenue stores in Dubai, Doha, Bahrain and Kuwait.
