Janet Jackson's sudden split from her husband Wissam Al Mana left many in shock as the pop music icon seemed to sacrifice her public life for the privacy of her marriage.
Now, after the news of the filing has been released, many are labeling Janet a gold digger, claiming she only married the Qatari billionaire for his deep pockets. Her best friend, however, is speaking up for her, and he has a few strong words for the haters.
The "Control" singer's bestie and longtime creative director Gil Duldulao dragged the trolls in a scathing Instagram post after noticing memes like the ones below claiming she got into the marriage for the coins.
Unwilling to watch his friend get dragged through the mud, Gil took to IG to defend her honor and dish some shade of his own.
