Janet Jackson, who married Qatari business tycoon Wissam Al Mana, seems to be embracing her new lifestyle. She was spotted in Dubai last Thursday, August 29, trying on variations of the local attire in Village Mall on Jumeirah Beach Road.
The pop star walked into the abaya boutique Toushih at around four in the afternoon and causing a stir of excitement amongst the employees present.
In February, rumours were put to rest as Janet Jackson confirmed that she and her boyfriend, Wissam Al Mana, had got secretly married at a private ceremony.
The couple have been dating for three years since they met in 2010 and the star, 46, planned to settle down with her new husband, 37, who is a Qatari billionaire.
The rumour mill had suggested that the couple were planning a lavish wedding this year at Al Mana's home in Qatar. However, the couple released a joint statement saying:“The rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year, we were married in a quiet, private and beautiful ceremony.
“Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favourite children’s charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy.”
Jackson and Al Mana reportedly met at the Armani Hotel opening in Dubai in 2010.
