Janet Jackson is off the market!
The singer, 46, and Qatari businessman, Wissam Al Mana, tied the knot last year, the couple’s rep confirmed to PEOPLE on Monday.
“The rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true,” they told ETOnline, which broke the official wedding news. “Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony.”
The couple adds, “Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favourite children’s charities.”
