Janet Jackson Is Officially A Billionaire!

May 22, 2013 04:30 PM by Donna W. Martin

American Idol guest star, Janet Jackson who secretly wed longtime boyfriend Wissam Al Mana late last year has been enjoying wedded bliss. And now, she has something else to enjoy. In fact, she’s reached an all-new high. What’s going on? She has officially reached billionaire status! Keep reading for more details.

According to omg!, 47-year-old Jackson has finally reached billionaire status! And for those of you who may be thinking ‘of course she’s a billionaire because she married one,’ you had better think again. While it’s true, Jackson married a billionaire, she is a billionaire in her own right, and it was without any help from husband Wissam Al Mana.

Jackson has had a long and successful career that began in the 70’s. And she is, after all, one of the best selling artists of all time. She raked in a hefty $458 million from six concert tours between 1990 and 2011 alone. Plus, she has earned another “$260 million in sales from her ten albums and more than $81 million from tour sponsorships and licensing fees.”

And let’s not forget her acting career. Jackson took in another $304 million starring in movies such as “Poetic Justice,” “The Nutty Professor,” “Why Did I Get Married,” and “For Colored Girls” to name a few.

Welcome to the billionaire’s club, Janet. You’ve worked hard and you deserve to be there!

    I am sooo very happy for her! In the last few years people have been on the attack and have had “something” against one Jackson or another and it doesn’t seem to matter if it’s a young Jackson like any of the grandchildren, or an older Jackson like Ms. Katherine or Joe, an alive Jackson like any of the siblings or a deceased Jackson like Michael, even an ex. Jackson like any of the ex- wives. All of their young lives the world loved the Jackson Family for the correct reason and that is for their talent, but as they got older and a couple of them got richer the envy, jealousy and even hatred came out from all over the place. Some people would stop at nothing to try and ruin these people, even to a point of complaining about the cost of the funeral of a man who spent 40 years of his life making others happy and not asking for anything in return. Hell just the amount of taxes alone that was paid to California and the government by that family should have been more than enough for the city of Los Angeles to have not had any issue about Michael’s homegoing. They even tried to put him in jail at one time and now even in death that doesn’t seem to be enough for these lying accusers. Some people have even tried to extort money from him and others are still throwing accusations at them by calling this family everything from greedy on one side of the spectrum to pedophile on the other side even though the accused is deceased. Ms. Janet Jackson or should I say Mrs. Wissam Al Mana, I can be nothing but happy for you and may you stay happy. Congrats to the two of you. (Just for God sake keep an eye on your mom because I really believe that mentally and emotionally she needs you and it doesn’t matter all of the past BS that happened she will always love and need her children, especially her baby!)

    Absurd, did she pay taxes? These numbers make her worth after she pays uncle sam and her agent and everyone else worth about 150mm. JOKE

    The math seems to be a tad sketchy here. While Janet has been in a lot of movies and tv shows, she doesn’t command a large salary. For the Nutty Professor II (not the first one, that was Jada Pinkett), she made $3 million for being in the movie, another $1 million for her song in it (according to IMDB). That was arguably at her “acting” height so she would have to be in 90-100 movies to make $304 million as an actress. How many tv shows and movies has she acted in? 12. I’m not ripping on her, she’s had a remarkable career and you almost never hear her do anything stupid, but let’s look at those numbers again.

    Then give your family members who are being sued a little cash.

    Sandra, most of these net worth articles are not based in reality. They have no idea what investments/debts people have made and if the ask some one what their net worth is (eg Donald Trump) they will exaggerate by a factor of 10 like Trump.

    the haters on are really something. what dose her taxes have to do with you . moves, music and tv shows have this thing called royalties meaning when her moves and tv shows are played on tv her music on the radio she gets paid. don’t forget tours have sold out every time and just because you don’t go to them doesn’t mean she hasn’t sold out tours. also she doesn’t live in a huge house like her mom and yes michael who didn’t need it by the way, she has a modest home in Malibu and drives her own car without drivers.
