Janet Jackson has a net worth of US$190 million in 2021, so how does the iconic star make and splash her cash?
Turning 55 on May 16, bona fide pop royal Janet Jackson will probably enjoy a low-key, socially distanced birthday with close friends at her London home, with her four-year-old son Eissa Al Mana nearby. But that doesn’t mean she can’t afford an extravaganza. According to Celebrity Net Worth, after a career spanning four decades and selling over 185 million records, Jackson is now worth an estimated US$190 million. Not bad for a single mum who only works when she wants to.
Contrary to internet rumours, Janet Jackson is not a billionaire. She was previously married to billionaire businessman Wissam Al Mana, a Qatari retail tycoon, but they split in 2017 soon after the birth of their son, Eissa. At the time, it was widely speculated that Janet was in a battle with Al Mana over US$250 million in alimony.
The rumours also stem from an inaccurate 2013 interview with Variety magazine, in which they called Jackson a “billion-dollar entertainer”.
Whether it’s a Vegas residency, one-off spectacular or international world tour, Jackson is not afraid to dance and sing for her supper, and good old, cold, hard work still accounts for a large percentage of her income. Not bad for someone who was blacklisted and practically lost their career following 2004’s Super Bowl “Nipplegate” scandal.
In fact, according to The Source, Jackson’s most recent State of the World tour brought in more than US$44 million in ticket sales while she was on the road from 2017 to 2019. And that was just in the US alone!
Jackson moved back to London in 2019 after previously living there with her estranged husband. She still lives in the British capital with her young son.
Jackson partnered with celebrity auctioneer Julien’s recently to host a three-day auction sale in Beverly Hills.
Items up for sale include her first wedding dress, from her secret marriage to dancer René Elizondo Jr. in 1991, plus her used furniture and jewels. Fans will also be able to splash out on iconic costumes from her tours and music videos for songs like Control, Nasty and What Have You Done For Me Lately. There’s even something for Michael Jackson fans. Her futuristic outfits from Scream – her only duet with brother Michael, then the world’s most expensive music video at US$7 million – will also be sold.
The auction house predicts a multimillion-dollar sale, with Jackson donating a portion of the proceeds to charity. – Source
