Janet Jackson has called it quits with Wissam Al Mana, and both of them seem to be heading towards an ugly divorce battle. The estimated worth of Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana and Janet Jackson together are anywhere between $175 million to $250 million. The couple had just welcomed their first child together this January. The news of their split, therefore, comes with the added question of what is on the horizon for the couple's divorce settlement and speculations are rife about the implications of their prenuptial agreement. 

Janet Jackson and Wissam have been married for five years. They tied the knot in a private ceremony in 2012. The significance of five years in the celebrity wedding world is huge as in most of these high profile weddings. Also, pre-nuptial arrangements play a defining role.

According to Mail Online, the pre-nuptial agreements are typically structured in a format where the longer the marriage lasts the after split payout sum also gets higher. A general format followed by the celebrities is a five-year marker. This means, if the marriage hits the fifth year then the amount that will be paid after divorce will increase. Again, in the same way, the next increase will be in the tenth year of marriage.

The fact that Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana have already entered the fifth year of their marriage and that they both have a child together makes it very much possible that an ugly divorce battle may ensue between these two rich individuals. For now, Jackson is spending her time on her own in London, revealed USA TodayIt is not also clear whether the "Escapade" singer will be fine with co-parenting her child with her third husband, Wissam Al Mana or will she seek for sole custody of her child, Eissa.
