Report: Janet Jackson Wants To Adopt Children From Jordan And Syria

Oct 2, 2013 06:20 AM


Newlyweds Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana are reportedly looking to adopt at least two children from Jordan and Syria, according to The New York Post. “It’s going to happen, and real soon,” a family member tells the newspaper.

“Janet has always been concerned about the welfare of the world’s children and it’s important to her that she affords a baby the opportunities that have been afforded her,” another source added.

Jackson has reportedly reached out to Queen Rania of Jordan to help facilitate an adoption, which is something Angelina Jolie did some years back. And that's not all! A source close to the 47-year-old singer says she hasn't ruled out getting pregnant. “She’s kept herself in great shape,” the source revealed.

Janet Jackson Reveals That She's Been Secretly Married For Months!

After reports hit the web that Janet Jackson and Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana got married in an over-the-top ceremony, the singer has set the record straight: They wed several month ago!

"The rumors regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private and beautiful ceremony," the couple said in a statement to Entertainment Tonight today. "Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favorite children's charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy."

The couple have been together since the summer of 2010 and they reportedly got engaged in December of 2012, so we're guessing the wedding came immediately after that. Jackson still hasn't worn her ring publicly, and a source tells Us Magazine, "She's afraid it will get lost, so she keeps it locked up!"

This is the third trip down the aisle for Jackson, who was previously wed to James DeBarge and Rene Elizondo in hush hush ceremonies. The two stepped out today at the Armani fashion show in Milan ... check out the photos in the gallery below.

The 46-year-old singer is engaged to Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana, according to Us.

A source tells the mag that Al Mana, 37, gave Jackson "a huge, expensive ring" and "she's afraid it will get lost, so she keeps it locked up!"

An insider adds, "He is flying in all of Janet's friends and family on private jets. He wants to get a top chef to create a custom menu."

This will be Janet's third marriage. She split from Jermaine Dupri back in 2009 and had previously been married to El Debarge.

The source says, "She wants kids. If she can't have them, she will adopt."

Congrats, Miss Jackson!

"They have tenatively set a late 2013 wedding date. They are still working out the details and the exact day," a source recently told The National Enquirer.

The couple are said to be flying in 500 of their closest friends and family for the nuptials, and Wissam is said to be gifting each guest with a $10,000 Rolex watch. Talk about swanky!

BREAKING NEWS - Janet Jackson's Attorney Claims Gossip Website Is "Engaged In A Malicious Campaign To Defame Her"

Janet Jackson's attorney, Blair Brown, is demanding that gossip website, TMZ, retract "false and defamatory" statements in regards to a story claiming Michael Jackson's estate "offers to pay for Janet Jackson's condo."

In a letter sent to TMZ's attorney, Brown writes:

    "By this letter, I inform you that an article regarding my client that appeared on TMZ.com on August 14, 2012 is false and defamatory. That article is "Michael Jackson Estate Offers to Pay for Janet Jackson's Condo." Specifically, the article states that the Estate of Michael Jackson filed documents in the probate court requesting that the estate be permitted "to foot a portion of the bill on Janet's mortgage on her posh Las Vegas condo." That statement is false."

In addition to mentioning that Janet "purchased the home outright ten years ago for her mother's use," the letter goes on to say:

    "The additional false story about Ms. Jackson this week on TMZ.com, posted with the knowledge that it would be repeated on hundreds of other websites, demonstrates, at a minimum, a pattern of reckless disregard for the truth in TMZ's reporting on Ms. Jackson and strongly suggests that TMZ is engaged in a malicious campaign to defame her."

X17 EXCLUSIVE - Janet Jackson's Attorney Tells X17 The Investigation Into Michael's "Invalid" Will Continues

Aug 3, 2012 06:40 PM

X17online has exclusively obtained a letter from Janet Jackson's attorney, on behalf of Janet, Randy and Rebbie Jackson. The letter states that the three siblings will continue investigating the validity of Michael's will.

The letter from attorney Blair G. Brown goes as follows:

    "Since the loss of Michael, Janet, Randy and Rebbie's principal concern has been and continues to be for the safety and wellbeing of Michael's children, their mother Katherine Jackson, and the entire family. Unfortunately, those people have been harmed by the actions of the executors of Michael's estate - John Branca and John McClain, the estate's lawyer Howard Weitzman, and those installed and paid to do their bidding.

    The negative media campaign generated by the executors and their agents has been relentless. In recent weeks, the media has received proposterous reports - all now proven to be false - of a purported kidnapping of Katherine Jackson and of physical and verbal abuse of a child. The exectors and their agents also recently issued a notice barring Janet, Randy and Rebbie from visiting their 82 year old mother and Michael's children. The effect of that notice not only is to damage fundamental family relationships, it is also to isolate Katherine Jackson from anyone questioning the validity of Michael's will.

    The actions of the executors and those working for them can only be understood in light of the questions about the will raised by Janet, Randy and Rebbie. The executors have never explained how Michael could have signed his will in California on a date that irrefutable evidence establishes he was in New York.

    It is important to stress that Janet, Randy and Rebbie have questioned the validity of the will with no financial motive whatsoever - they stand to gain nothing financially by a finding that the will is invalid. That point is worth repeating - they stand to gain nothing financially by a finding that the will is invalid. Michael's children will be the beneficiaries of Michael's estate. What will be gained by a finding of invalidity is that the executors will be replaced and the estate and the guardianship will be managed in a manner that is in the best interests of his children, which is what Michael wanted. The individuals who have the most to lose by a finding that the will is invalid are, of course, the executors and those on the executors' payroll.

    Janet, Randy and Rebbie will continue to press forward in their search for the truth in order to carry out the wishes of their brother Michael."

We've reached out to the executors for comment, but have yet to hear back.

Janet Jackson has battled the bulge for years, but with the help of Nutrisystem, it looks like she's finally found a solution to keeping her weight under control. The 45-year-old singer/actress attended the Keszler Gallery event in NYC this evening, and she showed off her slimmed-down bod and of course, plenty of cleavage!

Janet signed on with the company last year, and since then stars like Mariah Carey and Jessica Simpson have also teamed up with weight-loss programs like Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig.

"When I'm down or really stressed, I eat because that's my comfort place," she told Us Weekly after she announced that she was working with Nutrisystem. "I've had a problem with my body image. So that's why it's really really important to get to where you really feel comfortable. You need to look at yourself and say, 'I like this, I feel good about this. I feel healthy, I feel strong, and this is where I want to be.'"
