It's been a tough year for Janet Jackson, but she's happier lately.
New boyfriend Wissam Al Mana could be a big reason for that.
After splitting from longtime boyfriend Jermaine Dupri after a seven-year relationship last summer, Jackson slowly eased into this new romance. The pop star and her man were snapped soaking up the rays in Sardinia, Italy.
The 44-year-old Why Did I Get Married Too? star and the 35-year-old businessman from Qatar, who owns homes worldwide, have been quietly enjoying each other's company, according to reports. Glad she's moving on and happy!
It's nice to see Michael's sister happy again.
We're guessing Wissam Al Mana approves of Janet's new haircut too.
In non-romance news, she's currently writing True You, an exercise and nutrition book. She told Essence she "wanted to write this book because [she] wanted kids to have something to read and know that they are beautiful as they are."
A noble goal!
