Janet Jackson revealed for the first time the photos of her baby boy, Eissa Al Mana, whom she shares with estranged husband and Qatari billionaire businessman Wissam Al Mana. The photo came after reports about the reason for their divorce remained unconfirmed.
The posting came three months after Jackson and Wissam welcomed Eissa into their lives. Initially, she posted the photo on her personal website and captioned it with the words saying, she and her baby took the picture just after her child woke up from a nap. She then posted the photo on Twitter with the same caption, E! News shared.
Jackson did not release any statement regarding the divorce reports from her husband. Many claimed that the couple's cultural differences were the main reasons for the split, while others said he did not show enough concern over Jackson's mother, Katherine, who reportedly received physical abuse from a relative.
Amid these reports, Wissam took to his website to post a note titled, "Love." He wrote a post alongside a photo of the 50-year-old Jackson, "To the most beautiful person in the world, thank you for your divine love, your eternal support and for being my best friend. I love you so much, inshallah/we will be together in the Great Forever x."
As for Jackson and her condition after giving birth, a source close to the singer said that she is now getting her strength back and is feeling well. Reports also said that a lot of people help her and she feels very blessed. Her sibling, Jackie, shared in a recent appearance on "Good Morning America" that Jackson had a beautiful baby boy and everyone is fine.
It remains unclear how the divorce proceedings between the two will push through. According to The Times of India, Muslims have a lower rate of divorce as compared to other religions. Divorce in Islam has a lot of forms such as talaq or repudiation, khul or mutual divorce, judicial divorce and oaths.
In talaq, it is simply divorce but the husband has the right to dissolve the marriage. Khul, on the other hand, is initiated by the wife. Either spouse can file for divorce under judicial divorce, while oaths have three types namely the oath of continence, the denial of paternity and conditional talaq.
