Janet Jackson was a ‘prisoner in her own home’

Janet JacksonJanet Jackson‘s marriage to Wissam Al Mana was “an abusive situation,” according to her older brother, Randy Jackson.

The actress is currently in the process of getting a divorce from her husband as well as settling a custody battle. She gave birth to their son Eissa in January of this year and announced in April that the couple were splitting.

Randy told People Magazine: “There’s a lot of pain. Janet’s been through a lot with her divorce. I’ve been through a lot, we all have. It was quite an abusive situation. It came on later in the relationship, verbal abuse and being [made to feel like] a prisoner in her own home. No pregnant woman needs to go through being called a b***h everyday. There were things like that. That’s what she went through.”

His lawyers told People that Wissam “is not going to dignify these particular and deeply hurtful allegations with a response.”

Randy also went on to state: “The abuse is still going on. She has custody and he, of course, allowed her to bring the baby on tour, but it’s constant harassment.” ~Marriska Fernandes

    Be careful who you marry. They can make your life a frigging hell.

    Geez. But let’s not all take this on face value. Maybe she could be slinging his name thru the mud just to ensure she gets custody. It’s always he said/she said we weren’t there. And Randy Jackson is likely commenting as heresay. BUT it also could be true. Let the evidence be weighed before villainizing people.

    Well, she did marry a man whose religious ideology encourages wife beating and total control over women.

    Mara..go educate yourself. Islam actually preaches respecting your wife and putting her on the highest pedestal. Woman are to be treated like gold in the Islamic ideology. I hate when idiots like you don’t educate themselves and go based off of false media claims. Go study the religion before assuming things

    Mara, you mean Christianity? Because that’s what its been for the first 2,000 years of its existence. Until 100 years ago, women couldn’t own property, or vote in the Christian world, let alone hold a position of authority in the church.

    I agree with Lamia. You need to get yourself educated about other religions before spewing your negative bigoted comments.
