Janet Jackson has married her boyfriend Wissam Al Mana.

“Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony,” the couple told Entertainment Tonight in a surprise statement. “Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favorite children’s charities.”

“We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy.”

The newlywed couple added that they did not have an’ extravagant’ wedding. “The rumors regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true,” they wrote.

The news comes as the couple were spotted at the Giorgio Armani show on Monday during Milan Fashion Week.
