Randy Jackson opened up about his sister’s April divorce, and alleged that she suffered “verbal abuse” at the hands of her ex, Wissam Al Mana.
“It’s quite an abusive situation. It came on later in the relationship, verbal abuse and being (made to feel like) a prisoner in her own home,” he told People. “No pregnant woman needs to go through being called a b—h every day. There were things like that. That’s what she went through.”
“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,'” said Randy, who lives in London, close to the home Janet shared with her ex. “She was really pissed off. I told her, ‘I don’t care anymore. I’m tired of it. It’s too much.'”
Janet, 51, married the London-based Qatari businessman, 42, in 2012. Their son Eissa was born Jan. 3, but the couple announced they had parted ways just three months later. They’re embroiled in a custody battle over the child.
