Janet Jackson is breaking her silence with a special announcement to her fans. On Monday (May 1st), the singer posted a candid video updating the public on her personal and professional life. She started the message by lightly joking that she’s gained weight since delivering her son
Hey guys, it’s me Jan. Just in case you don’t recognize me ‘cuz I have put on quite a few since I had the baby, but I thank God for him you guys, he’s so healthy.
She also confirmed reports that she and her husband Wissam Al Mana had split saying,
I’m going to keep it real with you guys for a second: yes, I separated from my husband, we are in court and the rest is in God’s hands.
On a happier note, she is going back on tour.
