Janet Jackson is finally speaking out about her pending divorce from husband Wissam Al Mana, which was reported just three months after the birth of their son Eissa. ‘I just want to keep it real with you guys for a second,’ the 50-year-old Control singer tells fans in a new video posted to her official website and social media accounts. ‘Yes, I separated from my husband. We are in court and the rest is in God’s hands.’ The beginning of the video features Jackson addressing her weight and reassuring fans it is her, telling them, ‘I have put on quite a few since I had the baby.’ A male voice in the room says, ‘More than a few.’ ‘Can you please be quiet, Randy?’ Janet snaps back, presumably to her brother Randy who has been spotted with her in London after the birth of her son in January.
Jackson confirmed rumors that she was resuming her oft-postponed Unbreakable World Tour from 2015. ‘I’m continuing my tour as I promised. I’m so excited, you guys. I’ve decided to change the name of the tour to State Of The World Tour.’ She assured fans, ‘It’s not about politics. It’s about people, the world, relationships and just love.’
