When word got out that Janet Jackson had secretly married her billionaire beau Wissam Al Mana last year, it was news to the Jackson family.
Janet’s always been very guarded about her marriages. No one knew that Janet had been married to Rene Elizando for about 10 years until they got a divorce. But when it was revealed that Janet had gotten hitched, many assumed that her family would be among the chosen few to get he news first.
However, La Toya Jackson revealed that not even the Jackson family knew when Janet and Wissam had jumped the broom. In fact, they found at the same time everyone else did.
“You know what? I didn’t know that Jan was married until I heard it in the media,” LaToya told Essence.com during an event to promote her new OWN show “Life With La Toya.”
“It’s true!” La Toya added. “Most of the family members—no one really knew. Not at all. You’d be surprised how you’d find out things in the media.”
