Janet Jackson Reveals Secret Wedding Took Place Last Year

The lavish wedding rumors were wrong, because the R&B singer and billionaire Wissam Al Mana are already hitched

It seems those rumors last December of Janet Jackson's secret engagement to billionaire Wissam Al Mana were only partly true. The full story? They're already married.

"The rumors regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private and beautiful ceremony," Jackson and her husband revealed to Entertainment tonight. "Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favorite children’s charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy. With love, Wissam and Janet."

Wow. A secret celebrity wedding that was actually kept a secret. Today is full of marriage-related surprises.

The iconic singer started dating the businessman in 2010 and has been married twice before.

July 21: 5SOS Get Down in the Dirty Laundry

We know and love 5 Seconds of Summer's goofy side and it was on full display for a livestream with MTV earlier today. In a segment that surely made fans squeal, the guys riled through a pile of dirty laundry don a slew of ridiculous undergarments. While Michael looks content in his pink boxers/thong combo, we can't say the same about Calum, with Luke and Ashton looking equally perplexed, as to how to layer a lacy G-String over his highlighter-yellow shorts.
