She’s in the midst of a divorce from Qatari multi-millionaire husband Wissam Al Mana.
But it was a noticeably happy and smiling Janet Jackson who touched down in New York on Monday.
The singer was bringing baby Eissa home to America for the first time since his birth in London back in January.
The Escapade singer was 50 when she welcomed the now six-month-old, who is her first child.
And from her behavior as she strolled through the airport, it was clear Janet has taken to motherhood.
The doting mother carried her child in her arms, holding him close to her face as she reassured the inquisitive youngster with kisses and caressed him after the long transatlantic flight.
Dressed all in the black, Janet looked noticeably slimmed down.
She is currently in the midst of a divorce from Eissa’s father and previously said the divorce was ‘in God’s hands’.
Janet said: ‘I just want to keep it real with you guys for a second. Yes, I separated from my husband, we are in court and the rest is in God’s hands.’
And it was previously claimed Janet is leaning on her family following her split from Wissam.
An insider said: ‘As the babies of the family, they have an unbreakable bond. She trusts him more than anyone.
‘They are amicable. Janet hates mess just like Michael [Jackson] did and would have preferred to keep the split as quiet as possible … She couldn’t stay in the marriage.’
However, it is thought Janet still has a ‘strong friendship’ with Wissam despite their split.
The source added: ‘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. They are very disciplined and the baby is already on a strict schedule.
‘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.’
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.”

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.
