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!

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?!
