After the divorce, Jackson came out public and said that Elizondo had an addiction of using prescribed drugs and also said that;

I thought I was jinxed,’ she said. ‘Maybe marriage isn’t for me? Maybe it’s my fault it never works.‘I was always faithful. When it was over, I put up shields to protect myself from being hurt.’

Janet Jackson married Wissam Al Mana in a closed ceremony in 2012. She had an affair with Qatari billionaire since 2010. 

Even though she lost hope after her second divorce, she married for the third time in five years and also had a kid but what got the third marriage to end?

What was the cause for the divorce of Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana?

Celebrities with a lot of money on them usually decide on a prenup.  And as per TMZ Janet Jackson's  third divorce might have something to do with a prenup.  She lost 10 million in her second divorce. And it seems she is going to be the one making money this time.

Janet Jackson has the net worth of $175 million whereas, her former husband Wissam has the net worth of $1 billion. Like TMZ said there must have been a prenup, given the difference in their net worth. And as Prenups have 5 to 10 years mark, as the time goes up the money after the divorce keeps on increasing.

When Jackson announced her marriage in Feb 2013 she said that, she and Wissam got married a year before. As per TMZ's speculations, the marriage lasted just to make the five years mark and a baby may have prenups implication.

Whatever the media might say about the divorce, the couple stated that;

We’re both busy people, but determined to be good parents, even if we’re apart,’

But there has been a different story to the divorce as Janet was not seen outside and when she was seen she wore clothes which covered all her body which made people think that she has changed herself into a different religion.

Well, that seems true as Janet’s performances have certainly been much toned-down versions of her usual displays or canceled entirely.

According to the close source to Janet Jackson, the reason of the separation was believed to be the possessive nature of Wissam Al Mana. He was a private person and wanted Janet to wear full clothes in her concerts.

According to Janet;

‘I had already allowed him to dictate my appearance and even the way I performed at concerts. It drove me crazy, and I felt I was losing my fan base.

Some sites have even cited the religious and cultural difference as the main reason for their divorce as they both belong to the different world. The couple must have divorced to raise their child as the cultural difference would difficult.
