American Idol guest star, Janet Jackson is well on her way to saying “I Do” again! That’s right, the award winning singer and boyfriend, Wissam Al Mana are officially engaged, and the nuptials are expected to take place in the spring.
According to US Weekly, a source close to the couple said Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana, 37, gave Jackson a “huge, expensive ring” earlier this year but she doesn’t wear the ring. “She’s afraid it will get lost, so she keeps it locked up,” the source said.
Now, that must be some ring! Much the way Al Mana spared no expense on the ring; he will spare no expense on the ceremony either, which is set for this spring in Qatar. Another source close to Jackson said the wedding “will cost millions.” Al Mana plans to go all out for his bride-to-be. “He is flying in all of Janet’s friends and family on private jets,” which includes seven brothers and sisters and twenty nieces and nephews, plus, “he wants to get a top chef to create a custom menu” just for their special occasion.
Jackson and Al Mana have dated for two years and sources say she’s eager to seal the deal. “She wants kids [and] if she can’t have them; she will adopt,” a source said.
This will not be Jackson’s first trip to the altar. She has been married two other times to singer James DeBarge and music video director Rene Elizondo.
