Janet Jackson married her Qatari billionaire boyfriend last year without telling anybody. Rumours were surrounding the pop-singer, suggesting she was about to wed, but Jackson put things straight in a statement, according to Sky News.

"Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony," said the sister of the late Michael Jackson, giving no details as to where or when the nuptials took place. "The rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true, the couple explained to Entertainment Weekly. “Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favourite children's charities." This is the third marriage for Jackson; She married soul singer James DeBarge in 1984, but their marriage was annulled just one year later. Her marriage to music video director Rene Elizondo lasted much longer – they married in 1991 and divorced 9 years later in 2000. Now that she’s married again, a source tells US weekly, the star wants to start a family with Wissam Al Mana, 37. She wants kids," said the source. "If she can't have them, she will adopt."

The couple are rarely seen out together, so when they graced Fashion week arm in arm last week, people started talking. They sat front row at Roberto Cavalli's Milan Fashion Week show on Saturday. It’s actually Al Mana’s job to check this kind of stuff out; he’s a luxury brand manger and runs top shopping malls in the Middle East.
