Janet Jackson spotted for the first time since splitting up with Wissam Al Mana.
Janet Jackson’s now back on the market as it was recently confirmed that she is on track to divorce her husband of five years, Wissam Al Mana.
A source who works closely with the couple revealed that Jackson felt like Al Mana had become too controlling of her and hated the effect it was having on her career.
Now, since the news broke, Miss Jackson was spotted out and about on her own, and she seems to be in a happy place, despite the situation.
“It drove her crazy and she felt she was losing her fan base.”
Janet Jackson recently released nearly a minute of her new song, her first new work in seven years. The pop star is clearly whetting fans’ appetites for her Unbreakable tour, kicking off this fall. Janet is spotted leaving Los Angeles with husband, businessman Wissam Al Mana, and the airport goes wild to see her.

She recently teased her first music in seven years on social media.
And now Janet Jackson made a debut of a different kind: a wild new hairstyle.
The 49-year-old singer showed off her long curly tresses of varying degrees of brown as she arrived for a departing flight out of LAX on Wednesday.
The younger sister of Michael Jackson was not alone for the trip as she was joined by her husband of three-years Wissam Al Mana.
Janet definitely looked like a fashionable flyer in a black jumpsuit featuring baggy trousers along with a pair of white high-top sneakers.
The That’s The Way Love Goes hitmaker carried along a dark green and black tiger camouflage jacket while heading into the international airport and travel hub.
She also sported a pair of big, black designer sunglasses and had natural, complimentary make-up on her face finished off with a swipe of shiny pink lip.

Wissam donned a leather jacket over another jacket, V-neck shirt and trousers all in the same dark colour, while finishing off the look with white slip-on sneakers.
The 49-year-old “Rhythm Nation” singer was snapped at her rehearsal studio in Los Angeles, Calif. on Thursday, where she’s currently preparing for her highly anticipated world tour. Earlier this month, Janet announced she’ll be debuting new music and embarking on a world tour in 2015.
Dressed in all-black workout clothes, Janet was no doubt working hard at rehearsals. The notoriously private star was also in a good mood, smiling for the camera.
Janet’s been spotted rehearsing in Los Angeles since May 16, a source tells ET. She’s also clearly filming some type of video, judging by the camerawoman following her around.
“Many people were going in and out of the studio, making sure every time that the door was locked,” the source says about Janet tightly guarding her new project. Still, the source also notes that the superstar is “really, really low key,” and that only one bodyguard or assistant goes with her at a time.
Janet dropped the bombshell about her new music and tour just a day before her 49th birthday.
“I promised you’d hear it from my lips and now you will,” she said in a cryptic video. “This year, new music, new world tour, a new movement. I’ve been listening. Let’s keep the conversation going.”
Her last studio album, Discipline, was released in February 2008.
She’s back! Well, almost, anyway. The ever-elusive Janet Jackson was all smiles when she was seen arriving at an L.A. rehearsal studio on Thursday, May 28. The “Nasty” singer, 49, is preparing not just a world tour this year, but also a new album, her first in seven years.
The Grammy winner was dressed to fly under the radar in a black one-piece hooded sweatsuit and black cap. Though she had the hood up, her curly locks flowed and she smiled for photogs as she entered the rehearsal studio, no doubt to work on what will be some amazing dance moves for the tour.
The superstar last toured in 2011, and her most recent, 10th studio album, Discipline, was released in 2008.
Jackson has not yet revealed the title of her new record, but she may have dropped a hint with the announcement of new music earlier this month, using the hashtag #ConversationsInACafe.
Though Jackson may be busy preparing for the upcoming tour and album release, she did have a bit of fun recently. As Us Weekly previously revealed, her husband, businessman Wissam Al Mana, threw a surprise birthday party for her on May 16, and the singer partied until 1:30 in the morning. A source also told Us that the Poetic Justice star had “two beautiful cakes” at the shindig held at L.A.’s Hyde Lounge, which 30 of her closest friends and family attended.
