Ever since Janet Jackson announced her pregnancy back in October of 2016, the whole world has pretty much sat in anticipation of what's to come for the family and waiting to get a glimpse at the new baby. Since her son, Eissa Al Mana, was born, Jackson and ex-husband Qatari billionaire, Wissam Al Mana, have kept things pretty quiet - until now. Sources announced that over the weekend, Jackson called the police while the baby was at home alone with his father, to check on the welfare of the child.
PEOPLE magazine reported that the 17-month-old was with his father, Jackson’s now estranged husband at the Nobu hotel in Malibu, California. Jackson called authorities around 10 p.m. on Saturday, a spokesperson for the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station said.
It was confirmed back in confirmed in April 2017 that the couple had officially called it quits, just three months after they welcomed their first child together.
A source has told E! News that the couple hadn't been seeing eye to eye on many different issues, one of the main reason being their religious beliefs, especially whenever it came to raising their son. Sharing that, " Janet is more of a free spirit than Wissam. Cultural difference and backgrounds played a major role." The couple then decided to end their marriage after five years, their son being born just months before the break up.
When it comes to the incident with their son this past weekend,the spokesperson told PEOPLE, “Deputies were there [and] called to the scene. They decided the child was okay and they left.”
It has been reported that Jackson, age 52, was not at the hotel room at the time, but her brother, Randy Jackson told Entertainment Tonight — which first reported the news on Sunday — that his sister was concerned after their nanny grew “terrified” by Al Mana’s behavior and “locked herself in a bathroom, so she could contact Janet.” That's an incredibly alarming phone call to receive and we think that every mom would have called the authorities, too.
A watch commander confirmed to E! that Jackson made the initial phone call at about 10 PM. When the police arrived, Jackson was there, on the scene but authorities found that her child's safety was not in danger and he was allowed to stay with the father.
As of right now, there has not been any feedback given by Al Mana on what happened that night in the hotel or what startled the nanny.
