The singer of such hits as "That's the Way Love Goes" is confirming that she and Wissam Al Mana got married last year, according to ET Online.
Janet and Wissam, who is a Qatari businessman, had chosen to keep the wedding a secret until now.
"Last year, we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony," they have revealed. "The rumors regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true."
"Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favourite children's charities," they continued. "We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy."
Janet is 46, and this is her third marriage, following marriages to James DeBarge and René Elizondo, Jr. Her marriage to René had also been kept a secret at first.
