Janet Jackson has shocked her fans by announcing that she is separating from her husband, billionaire Wissam Al Mana.

The news comes just a few months after the Grammy Award-winning singer gave birth to the couple's first son, Eissa.

A rep for the 50-year-old stressed that the pair was separating and not divorcing. 

Janet and Wissam secretly got married in 2012 after two years of dating.

The pair has been notoriously private about their relationship, with Janet spending less time in the spotlight over the past few years. 

While some media reports have suggested that Janet called it quits due to Wissam's controlling ways, the split is amicable according to sources close to the couple.
