Janet Jackson is a new wife!

ETOnline has exclusively confirmed that she has married fiance Wissam Al Mana in a very hush-hush wedding – last year! In a statement to the entertainment outlet, the couple writes:

“Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony. Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favorite 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"

Wissam is the managing director of Al Mana Retail and he met Janet in December 2009 after she gave a special performance in the Middle East. Wissam, whose family has extensive reach in the real estate and media spheres, popped the question with a 15-carat diamond engagement ring in late 2012.

"I'm fortunate enough to be dating my dream woman," Wissam, 37, told Harper's Bazaar Arabia.

And Janet, 46, is happy as ever with her man. "I'm getting older and I feel more settled," she’s said. "We have a deep bond, a deep connection."

This is the third marriage for the superstar. Congratulations to the couple!
