Janet Jackson reportedly called the police to check on her one-year-old son while he was with her ex-husband
Janet Jackson reportedly called up the police over the weekend to ask them to perform a welfare check on her 1-year-old son Eissa while he was staying with his father Wissam Al Mana. The call came into the Malibu law enforcement late on Saturday night. The cops were asked to check on her son while he was at The Nobu Hotel with her former husband.
According to TMZ, the police did perform the welfare check as requested but did not detect any signs of danger to the little boy. However, sources reveal that Wissam was allegedly showing some form of aggressive behavior which worried Eissa's nanny enough to report to Janet.
After the incident, the police asked Janet and her ex-husband to resolve their issues in a "civil" manner. It is not clear whether Janet ended up at the hotel or not.
Janet and Wissam decided to go their separate ways in April 2017 only a few months after the couple welcomed their son Eissa in January. At the time, a source told DailyMail, "They’re both busy people but determined to be good parents, even if they’re apart. Eissa will stay with his mother, who is basing herself in London."
It is believed that the couple's relationship ended on 'amicable' terms. However, a couple of months later, Janet's brother, Randy Jackson shared some very disturbing details about the marriage. As reported by PEOPLE, Randy said, "It was quite an abusive situation."
"It came on later in the relationship, verbal abuse and being [made to feel like] a prisoner in her own home. No pregnant woman needs to go through being called a b***h every day. There were things like that. That’s what she went through. There’s a lot of pain. Janet’s been through a lot with her divorce. I’ve been through a lot, we all have," says Randy referring to Janet's divorce and custody battle.
However, Wissam completely denied all the allegations. "Mr. Al Mana is not going to dignify these particular and deeply hurtful allegations with a response. The breakdown of his marriage to Janet Jackson is a cause of great sadness to Mr. Al Mana, and it is the well-being and privacy of their son, Eissa, that remains his sole focus," says Wissam's attorney.
Janet announced the split during the clip that she posted to Twitter. The tweet also announced that she would be resuming her state of the World tour which she had postponed due to her pregnancy. "Yes, I separated from my husband. We are in court now and the rest is in God’s hands," she wrote.
Janet's brother Randy revealed, "I told her, ‘You’ve got to move in with me or I’m going to go over there and there’s going to be hell.’ She was really pissed off. I told her, ‘I don’t care anymore. I’m tired of it. It’s too much". He also revealed how he was not the only Jackson family member to rally around Janet at the time of the divorce.
"My mom and [sister] Rebbie came out [to London]. I didn’t want them to know. My parents are up there in age so I wanted to protect them as much as possible, but now they know. Everybody in the family knows," he shared.
