The popular singing star gave a late night scare call to the emergency services amid fear of her son's safety.


Music artist Janet Jackson called 9-1-1 on Saturday, June 2 to check on her one-year-old son, Eissa Al Mana, who was with his father, Wissam Al Mana, after she received a warning call from a nanny.

According to ET Online, who reached out for information to Jackson's brother, musician Randy Jackson, the nanny made the call after Al Mana's behavior made her concerned about the safety of the child.

Randy told the news source that the nanny was so terrified of Al Mana's aggressive behavior that she locked herself in a bathroom to contact Janet.


Eissa was with his father when the police responded to Janet's call a little before 10 p.m. at the Nobu Hotel. The authorities confirmed that to ET Online that Janet was not present on the scene at the time.

“Deputies were there [and] called to the scene. They decided the child was okay and they left,” a spokesperson for the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station told PEOPLE.

Another report coming from TMZ further suggested that Janet was worried that her 43-year-old ex-husband might have used drugs around Eissa. However, police found that there was zero suspicion of drugs being used.


Janet and Al Mana got divorced only three months after welcoming their son on January 2, 2017.

Following their separation, Janet was determined on co-parenting their child with her husband but did not want to reconcile with her estranged husband, a source revealed to ET Online.

“All Janet wants to do is move forward and be the best mother to her son and to be happy," the news outlet quoted its source as saying at the time.
