2. Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana
When Janet Jackson gets married, it is usually by method of elopement. In the beginning, when she eloped with singer James deBarge, it was because she was afraid that her fearsome father Joe Jackson would stand in their way. That was a real elopement. Now, though, she is one of the world’s most influential recording artists and her husband is a billionaire from the Middle East. Yet, her marriage to him was in secret – no one even knew that they were married, until they announced it a full year later.
