Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana are no bitter exes. A report in People magazine has claimed that the former couple are working together to co-parent their three-month-old baby boy, Eissa.
The couple, who were married for five years, announced their split on 11 April, only a couple of months after the Grammy winner gave birth to their baby. A Jackson family friend told the magazine that they are not fighting.
"Janet really trusts Wissam and he trusts her. She and Wissam are working together to co-parent. They have a strong friendship. There is no fighting between them," said the source.
"They are very disciplined and the baby is already on a strict schedule," the source added. According to the insider, there is no bad blood between the Qatari businessman and the Jackson family. The friend alleged that they all "like Wissam and see that he is a great father".
The family friend also revealed that the Rhythm Nation singer is planning to put up in London for now. "It seems like she will stay in London for now while the baby is so young, but I can see her eventually moving back to the States. Janet is doing really well. She is just so happy to have her baby," the friend said.
Recently, Al Mana posted a loving message directed towards his ex on his website. Next to a large black-and-white photo of Jackson, the 42-year-old wrote, "To the most beautiful person in the world, thank you for your divine love, your eternal support and for being my best friend. I love you so much, inshallah we will be together in the Great Forever x," in the message titled Love.
The couple tied the knot in 2012, and the 50-year-old reportedly converted to Islam in 2013. Their marriage fallout is being blamed on Al Mana and Jackson's conflicting lifestyle, although the couple have refused to comment on it.
