Janet Jackson has been married three times, but all relationships ended in divorce. Let's take a look at her relationships with her ex-husbands and where things went sour.


Janet Jackson made a name for herself following her brothers' fame as The Jackson 5. After various acting and musical projects under her belt, she became a worldwide sensation.

Through the years, she has gotten married thrice and has a child with her last husband, Wissam Al Mana. Since then, she's focused on bringing up her son in the best way possible instead.

Her first marriage was with her boyfriend James Debarge. Although their relationship ended in divorce just months after they got married, DeBarge dropped a huge shocker on the hit show "Growing Up Hip Hop" where he claimed that the two of them actually have a secret daughter.


Janet and James eloped in 1984, but soon after, their marriage was annulled. Years later, DeBarge's daughter Kristinia found articles about their alleged love child, which prompted him to speak up about it. While he confirmed it, Janet never spoke up about the issue.



After she recorded her hit album "Rhythm Nation 1814," she fell in love with a dancer named Rene Elizondo, Jr. who worked on her sister LaToya Jackson's music video and they secretly got married in 1991.


Janet and Rene only announced their marriage when they decided to get a divorce, which was initially a friendly separation. However, things went sour after Elizondo threatened to sue her for $10 million and spill their secrets through a book. They haven't talked since.

After three failed marriages, Janet is done dating, and instead, she'd rather praise her "woman crushes" on Instagram.



Jackson's latest marriage was with Wissam Al Mana, a man whom Janet shares son Eissa with. Although they had a private relationship, their messy divorce was publicized after a call to authorities was made by Jackson to check on the welfare of their then-17-month-old son Aissa who was with Al Mana at the Nobu hotel in Malibu, California.

They quietly wed in 2012, but split up in 2017, just three months after Jackson gave birth to their son, Eissa. Despite their split, Al Mana called Jackson "the most beautiful person in the world" on his website and the rest became history.



After three failed marriages, Janet is done dating, and instead, she'd rather praise her "woman crushes" on Instagram. While practicing social distancing amid the COVID-19 pandemic, she revealed that her woman crushes were actually Queen Latifah and Gabrielle Union.

The singer shared a picture of the lovely trio from her Las Vegas residency, sending them love during these uncertain times which fans ultimately admired.
