Randy Jackson Spills All the Tea, Says Janet Jackson Was in an Abusive Marriage and Is Still Being Harassed by Wissam Al Mana

News

Janet Jackson's brother, Randy Jackson, is spilling ALL the tea regarding Janet's failed marriage to Wissam Al Mana.


He says that during the marriage Wissam was verbally abusive to Janet and made her feel like a 'prisoner' in her own home.

“It was quite an abusive situation,” Randy claims. “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 bitch everyday. There were things like that. That’s what she went through.”

Attorneys for Wissam deny the allegations, saying:

 “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 wellbeing and privacy of their son, Eissa, that remains his sole focus.”

Randy went on to clarify that the abuse was not physical, but he still tried to get Janet out of the situation long before she actually left.

“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 says

 “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.” 

Randy also dispels rumors that Janet converted to Islam, noting that she's Christian.

“I have a lot of Muslim friends and they don’t act that way at all,” he says. “It’s a personal issue that he needs help with and I’m going to pray for him, too. But I’m not going to allow her to live in that abusive situation. She’s my baby sister.”

Janet recently broke down in tears during her State of the World tour. Randy says it's because the abuse is still continuing.

“What you saw in Houston, it was her situation coming out, what she’s been going through. The abuse is still going on.”

“She has custody and he of course allowed her to bring the baby on tour, but it’s constant harassment. This tour almost didn’t happen, but by the grace of God we’re here and we’re very prayerful.”

We're happy Janet's regaining control of her life.

'Black Panther' Is Now Expected to Exceed $200 Million at the Weekend Box Office

Disney and Marvel Studios' Black Panther is making history at the box office.

After early projections put the film at a $170 million+ box office weekend, it's now on pace to bring in a record-shattering $205 million-$210 million.

via THR:

The tentpole earned $75.8 million on Friday, the eighth-biggest day of all time. Friday's gross includes $25.2 million in Thursday evening previews. Playing in 4,020 theaters, Black Panther drew a diverse audience on Friday; 37 percent of ticket buyers were African-American, while Caucasians made up the next largest group (36 percent), according to comScore. That sort of demo breakdown is unheard of for a marquee superhero tentpole. On average, African-Americans make up about 15 percent of the audience for such fare.

Black Panther will easily score the top February opening of all time and possibly the best showing of any superhero pic ahead of fellow Marvel title The Avengers ($207.4 million), not accounting for inflation. The movie's projected three-day haul of $185 million will also rank high up on the list of all-time openings. It will also mark the biggest opening ever for an African-American director.

Directed by Ryan Coogler, the $200 million film is a defining moment in Hollywood history, being a big-budget studio tentpole featuring a virtually all-black cast. In the film, Chadwick Boseman stars as T'Challa/Black Panther alongside Lupita Nyong'o, Michael B. Jordan, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis.

The story follows T'Challa as he is sworn in as king of Wakanda, a cloaked, technologically advanced nation in Africa that's home to the exotic metal vibranium, which powers much of Black Panther's tech.

Black Panther has generated enormous buzz in recent weeks, selling more tickets in advance than almost any other movie before it.

Two years ago, Deadpool became the February champ when taking in $152.2 million over the four-day Presidents Day weekend.
