Here’s Why Janet Jackson Might Have Hit the Lottery With Her Divorce

She has reportedly split from her billionaire hubby.

Published April 10, 2017

Janet Jackson and her husband, Wissam Al Mana, have reportedly split, and while that is sad news considering they have an infant son, it appears that there may be a pretty sizable economic silver lining. 

Though the two reportedly had a prenup agreement in place, the length of their marriage may leave Jackson with a potentially huge payout. Of course, the pop star is worth an estimated $175 million on her own, but that's tiny compared to her husband's billions.

While Jackson didn't announce her marriage until February 2013, the two actually had gotten married the year before. Thanks to the way in which most prenup agreements are drawn up, with five and 10 year marks serving as the deciding factor behind how much spousal support will have to be paid. Since she filed for divorce pretty much five years on the button, Jackson may be looking at a fairly dramatic increase in her bank account. 

The fact that the two recently had a baby together could mean even more money on the table. The impending divorce is of course sad news for Jackson, but the extra money will definitely make it easier to bear.
