Janet Jackson, Billionaire: Star's Net Worth Now Over $1B

by at . Comments

Janet Jackson is officially a billionaire, according to reports, and it has nothing to do with the fact that she recently married one - that's just her share!

Janet Jackson, Billionaire

The singer/actress, who quietly wed Wissam Al Mana at some point in late 2012 or early 2013 (as we said, it was quiet), is worth an insane amount.

According to estimates, Jackson earned $260 million in album sales alone, with an additional $81 million coming from music and book rights.

Her music career has also brought Jackson a total of $458 million in sold-out world tours, plus another $81.5 million in sponsorships and licensing fees.

Janet also has a successful and impressive film career, with roles in Nutty Professor II, Poetic Justice and Why Did I Get Married netting $300 million.

Altogether, that’s a staggering $1.18 billion in personal income.

Only a notable few celebs, such as Madonna, Steven Spielberg, J.K. Rowling, Oprah Winfrey and of course Michael Jackson could reach that level.

In February, it was revealed that Janet Jackson married Wissam Al Mana, who is 11 years her junior at 37 and hails from a wealthy family himself.

The Qatar native runs 50 companies in Mideast, including ventures in real estate, automotive distribution, engineering and construction, and retail.

It is believed that he, too, has achieved billionaire status.

He also owns Al Mana Luxury Company and serves as director of fashion portfolios, alongside two of his brothers ... yet seems like a chill guy.

Probably just the kind of guy Janet Jackson needs. When you've got two billionaires living together, you know no one's in it for the money, right?!


I love janet jackson,i grew up watching her on good times & im happy for her & all her sucess.lol


Janet iam from by hurtsboro al. Please take care Joe Jackson too he's a key figure in yo success


Many people I mean "rich" forego love and focus on class how rich he, she is and family strength that's Why such relationship never last. It's know all over the world how God created this world with love which means LOVE is the MASTER KEY for life.
let's put love forward and I think a billionaire, millionaire looses nothing when loves or relates to getto commoner.


I'm glad the word is out. I get tired of some people who think that all the Jackson family does is hang around for Micheal's money, when the reality is that some of them have made plenty money of their own. Was Michael a millionaire?


She is worth so much money and more because of her unforgettable music, charisma, personality, etc. I have always loved Janet and her family. They are the black family I think any person would join.


janet jackson has been in public eyes for a long time.she deserve it


Billionaire, huh? Well...Miss Janet Jackson had better hang on/hold on to her so-called billion $$$ while she can. Remember...The government is A-L-W-A-Y-S looking for their cut (taxes and all)...24/7. LOL!!!!!


ho...ly...shit. wow.


Damn...and I can barely afford groceries LOL.

@ Kellie

SERIOUSLY!!!! its just like, "why dont ya just.. slide on over 10 percent'a that over here...."


Considering she did have licensing and stake in many of her songs, cds, tours and ventures over decades this is plausible. Artists such as her, Madonna, etc. were smart in how they invested their money which is why they are becoming billionaires. You never saw them flaunt their riches with 8 homes and 10 cars. I may be poor but not going to be angry about her wealth. She worked hard for her success. At least she's not acting ignorant or flaunting it in fans faces such as some of the artists out now. She maintains her sense of privacy.
