Didn’t people tell Janet Jackson what she was getting into when she married a Muslim? It’s too funny that she’s divorcing because her husband began to be too controlling…ya think? Did she not read the Quran?
Page Six Reported:
While one source said the split is amicable and the couple will co-parent their son, others said trouble had been brewing for months.
“She thought he had become too controlling during the pregnancy and she had already allowed him to dictate her appearance and even the way she performed at concerts,” the source who works closely with the couple said.
Other demands that the “Rhythm Nation” singer gave in to included toning down her 2014 concert tour — wearing clothing that covered her body, instead of the skin-revealing outfits fans had grown to love.
She also declined to do music videos that featured any bumping and grinding, trademarks of her work, the source said.
“It drove her crazy and she felt she was losing her fan base.”
Jackson also resented the reclusiveness of her husband, who rarely met with her friends or family, the source said.
The guy made her dress in traditional Muslim garb and totally controlled who she saw.

Janet is 100 pounds heavier since giving birth to the couple’s first child. Shocking photos came out showing the couple hand in hand with a very pregnant Jackson in full black Muslim dress. This was a far cry from the sizzling dancer/ singer’s days on tour.
When the couple married, there was much speculation, never confirmed, that Ms Jackson had converted to Islam, fuelled by her appearance in a head scarf.
There were rumours of a split within days of her son’s birth, when she was seen in public without a wedding ring but these were discounted at the time.
But last night, a close friend of Ms Jackson told The Mail on Sunday: ‘Sadly, Janet and Wissam have decided that it wasn’t working and to go their separate ways.
‘They’re both busy people but determined to be good parents, even if they’re apart. It’s amicable and Eissa will stay with his mother, who is basing herself in London.’

The singer was briefly married to singer James DeBarge in 1984 but the pair split the following year and the marriage was later annulled.
