Rob Shuter tells Fox 5 News that Jackson is moving to the Middle East and is converting to Islam.

“As fans all around the world collectively clutch their pearls, reports are surfacing that you may NEVER see Janet Jackson’s abs, boobs or Poetic Justice braids again. Apparently, after secretly marrying her hot billionaire husband,Wissam Al Mana, Ms. Jackson…if you’re Nasty…made the made the decision to walk away from Hollywood. And now supposedly this chick went and converted to Islamic culture.

A source told Showbiz 411,“She’s gone. She married a billionaire. They’ve got houses in three countries. She’s spending time in the Middle East. She’s become a Muslim.”

If you think about it, it makes perfect sense that the True You author Janet, who’s had her life in the hands of critics and gossip columnists since she was a kid, would opt for a quiet opulent life. And we can’t even be mad about it…a billionaire and your life becoming one big vacation away from the foolishness that sometimes overtakes this industry? Slightly jealous now that we think about it….

While Justin Timberlake is seeing the best sales of his career, it could be argued that America never really embraced Janet after the nipplegate debacle at Superbowl 2004. Her music career became a snooze fest, she had to downgrade her concert tours from arenas to concert halls and no one in Hollywood came calling (except Tyler Perry).

But it doesn’t look like Janet is planning to go completely into hiding…at least not yet. From the looks of it, she’ll remain dedicated to her causes, such as fundraising for AIDS research with amFAR. She recently tweeted about an auction for fans to spend time with her at the Cannes Film Festival in May to raise money for the foundation.”

She has come a long way from playing Penny on "Good Times" to marrying a billionaire but she is crazy if she moves to the middle east and converts to Islam because she will have to become very submissive to him which is tantamount to being a slave. If the marriage fails, there's no guarantees she will be able to leave the middle east since Sharia law will prevail over there. She probably thinks she knows what she's doing but over there she will experience a culture shock that could make this not end well for her.

Have you ever been to the middle East? You sound silly, Sharia law is in only in a few places, she's moving to Dubai, which is as liberal as Vegas.

Well it is the ultimate sign of respect, which is why women take on the mans culture (as opposed to the man not even having a culture or adopting the womans--men adapting in to the womans culture is unseemly).
Many don't understand this because although America is a great culture, it is a place which overall disregards the culture of others outside of food. In fact, in this country we are by and large so shallow that we believe food and music is culture.

Because of her race, they will most likely live in more liberal areas of the middle east. I doubt very seriously she will ever see the gritty, very strict areas which do not condone there type of marriage. It is actually very dangerous what they are doing. He would have had to be a billionaire to do this.

I wish them well. He sure is fine (not uncommon for arab men). They look good together.

We will see who looks silly when the marriage fails and pisses that wealthy raghead off and he has her detained or prohibited from returning to the west, you idiot. Don't forget, he is an Islamic billionaire on HIS turf, not hers. He has power and connections over there where she or even her entire family do not. Bottom line is she is placing herself in danger and don't think for one second that she will get a large lump sum in a divorce settlement. She won't get one thin dime. The money will stay in the middle east with him. She would be lucky to get out of it alive.

Janet Jackson was raised by a good woman, and a domineering father, but she said he was a good dad, but he had his faults like everyone else.

I see you still think everyone in the World has an American mentality. Let's be clear about a few things, first there are many non-Arab women married to Arab men, and most don't have those silly fears. Second he cannot force her to stay even if he wanted too, she goes to American embassy and will be allowed to leave the country. Last, what are the divorce rates in the Middle East? Very low I'm sure, they put emphasis on family, not money. My guess is she will live a very peaceful life with her husband, stop getting you information about other cultures from the American media, get a passport, and explore the World firsthand!

Sir, she's to be submissive to her husband.

She's doing the right thing.

Submissive doesn't equate to slavery.

It's simply recognizing the man as the head of the household and honoring and obeying him in a very respectful way.

And where did I say there weren't? If you don't know how blacks are overall viewed by arabs, well you are smoking that stuff. And they do not condone ir marriages either.

It has nothing to do with submission. It's a sign of respect.

Submissive = respect

I hope you know your place as a woman if you're married.
