Janet Jackson’s marriage to Wissam Al Mana is not in trouble.

There has been recent speculation about the state of the singer’s relationship with Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana.

But Janet wants to make it clear any reports about them splitting are completely false.

“The rumours about their marriage are a lie. They are very happy and very much together. In fact, the couple has recently purchased an even larger home in New York," her rep confirmed to Entertainment Tonight.

The pop star and Wissam got married in a secret ceremony two years ago. Janet admitted to the marriage in 2013, to set the record straight.

"The rumours regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony," she confirmed to E! News. "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."

The couple were reportedly looking into expanding their family last year, quietly looking into adopting a child.

The singer was apparently very moved by the plight of orphans in Jordan and Syria and wanted to do something to help.

"She now pretty much knows pregnancy is not in the cards, so she's been looking into adopting,” a source told Us Weekly. "She's been very moved by the events in Jordan and Syria now that she's been living overseas. Not sure how soon it will happen, but there's been movement on this."
