Drama! Janet Jackson was Violently Abused by Her Ex-Husband, Older Brother Claims

By  | 

Janet Jackson was violently abused, and is still going through same at the hands of her estranged husband Wissam El Mana, this her brother Randy Jackson claims.

Speaking with PEOPLE, Randy alleged that his sister suffered “verbal abuse” and felt like “a prisoner in her own home” during her marriage to Qatari billionaire. 

“It was quite an abusive situation,” Randy said. “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.”

He continued, saying that at a point, he had to intervene. “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 said.

Randy added that he tried to keep the alleged sad situation from their old parents. “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,” he added.

And with the ongoing divorce and custody battle, Randy added that his sister is still being put through too much pain.

There’s a lot of pain. Janet’s been through a lot with her divorce. I’ve been through a lot, we all have,” Randy said, adding, “I have a lot of Muslim friends and they don’t act that way at all. 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.”

Randy Jackson didn’t hold back at all, and his reason is that evil thrives in darkness, in silence. He alleged that his sister weeps every time, even at her recent Houston concert.

“The abuse is still going on,” Randy continued. “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 don’t like to put our business out there but sometimes transparency helps you. The devil thrives in darkness. I’m just here supporting her through this time,” he concluded.

Meanwhile, Al Mana’s attorney have issued a statement, calling Randy’s comments “deeply hurtful allegations”.

 Janet Jackson has yet to speak up since this story surfaced.
