Janet Jackson is reportedly ready to settle down away from the spotlight with claims that she is retiring from music and converting to Islam for her new husband Wissam Al Mana.

The 'All For You' singer married billionaire businessman Wissam in a top secret ceremony last year after three years of dating.

The couple have maintained a relatively low-profile throughout their relationship so far and it appears Janet may be intent on keeping it that way with reports that the singer is ready to step away from her music career and settle down into married life.

According to Showbiz411, Janet is planning a move to the Middle East with Wissam and will also be converting to Islam to respect her husband's religion. “She's gone. She married a billionaire,” a source told the website in regards to Janet's career.

“They've got houses in three countries. She's spending time in the Middle East. She's become a Muslim.”

Janet has enjoyed a career spanning more than 30 years which has included several number singles and albums, lucrative tours while she has also starred in a number of movies such as Nutty Professor, Poetic Justice and most recently For Coloured Girls.

The 46-year-old confirmed the news that she had wed in a statement released in February, some months after she and Wissam had actually tied the knot.

“The rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony,” the statement read.

“Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favourite children's charities. We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy. With love, Wissam and Janet.”

EntertainmentWise have reached out to Janet's rep for comment.
