Janet Jackson can sure keep a secret!
The 46-year-old singer has denied rumors of an impending wedding with Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana, 37, because, as she recently revealed to “Entertainment Tonight,” the couple already tied the knot last year.
“The rumors regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true,” the couple told “ET” in a joint statement. “Last year we were married in a quiet, private and beautiful ceremony.”
“Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favorite children’s charities,” they added. “We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy.”
Jackson seems to be an expert when it comes to keeping her private life out of the public eye.
The entertainer, who ended her seven-year relationship with Jermaine Dupri in 2009, managed to keep her previous two marriages – to James DeBarge and Réne Elizondo, Jr. – a complete secret.
Looking ahead, Jackson is reportedly eager to start a family with Mana, whom she began dating in the summer of 2010.
“She wants kids,” a source told Us Weekly. “If she can’t have them, she will adopt.”
