Janet Jackson's Intensely Private World And Why She Traded Fame for a Quiet Family Life

Janet Jackson has performed her greatest trick yet.

The last time the pop star was fully present in the spotlight, she was gearing up to go on tour. It was June, 2015, and the concerts she had teased earlier that spring were just made official.
It all started, as the best stories do, as a love story. 

After a few ill-fated marriages in the past, Janet met Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana at a hotel opening in 2010. Their courtship was the stuff of legends, as they went jet setting from Dubai to Sardinia and everywhere in between. They announced their engagement in 2012 and slowly started flying more and more under the radar as Jackson traded public celebrity for quiet private life.

Of course, that didn't stop them from gushing about each other whenever possible—like when Al Mana told Harper's Bazaar Arabia "I'm fortunate enough to be dating my dream woman" with Jackson adding, "We have a deep bond, a deep connection."

The singer, surprisingly, revealed that the two had tied the knot in complete secrecy, even deciding to donate to children's charities as their wedding gifts to each other. (Cue the collective aww.) All of this makes the motivation behind the postponement of the Unbreakable World Tour even sweeter: Janet and Wissam were expecting their first child. (Cue even more awws.)

The decision to place a hold on her career in order to focus on having her first child at long last set in motion the plans that led to her cozy, insular life today. Once it was decided that performances wouldn't be happening—it's easy to guess it was on doctor's orders, as Jackson was pregnant at the age of 50—she went straight into nesting mode. According to E!'s sources, Janet and her husband began enjoying a low-key life split between Dubai and Qatar, citing far greater privacy than they could ever expect to get in the States.

"They pretty much keep to themselves," the source said last April. "They are very happy. Janet goes out here and there for events at times but mainly keeps a low profile."
