Janet Jackson and husband Wissam Al Mana have reportedly split after five years together. 

E! News first reported that the superstar singer and Qatari billionaire are separating. The couple had just welcomed their first child four months ago when son Eissa Al Mana was born on Jan. 3, 2017. Neither has issued an official statement.

The 50-year-old singer and 42-year-old businessman first met in 2010, but kept their relationship mostly private until announcing in February 2013 that they had quietly married. A year ago, Janet postponed her Unbreakable world tour after revealing she was trying to start a family and confirmed her pregnancy in October.

This marks the third marriage for Jackson after she tied the knot with singer James DeBarge (married from 1984-1985) and to dancer René Elizondo Jr. (1991-2000).
