Janet Jackson and her ex-husband, Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana, share custody of their 1-year-old son Eissa. It was Wissam’s turn to have Eissa this weekend, and their daddy-son time was interrupted by a surprise visit from the police.
A watch commander with the Malibu County Sheriff’s Office tells Entertainment Tonight that they received a call from Janet shortly before 10pm on Saturday, asking them to check on her son Eissa. A call from a Jackson to the police isn’t exactly out of the ordinary, and based on the Jackson’s family’s history of abuse allegations, neither is this next part. Janet’s brother Randy Jackson tells ET that Janet called 911 after receiving a phone call from a nanny who was with Wissam and Eissa. The nanny claimed that Wissam was exhibiting “aggressive” behavior, and she was so terrified, she locked herself in a bathroom to hide, where she called Janet.
Sources tell TMZ that when police arrived at the Nobu Hotel in Malibu, where Wissam was staying, their welfare check determined that no one was in any danger. The police told Janet and Wissam to handle the matter themselves in a civil manner.
Janet and Wissam have been fighting over Eissa ever since they called it quits three months after his birth. It’s been a mess ever since. It was reported that Janet timed things so that she’d walk away with $200 million, which was followed by the stories about how Wissam was too controlling for her. Back in September, Janet tried to get full custody of Eissa, as brother Randy was telling anyone who would listen that Wissam had been verbally abusive to Janet.
According to law enforcement sources who spoke to TMZ, Janet was allegedly afraid that Wissam was using drugs around Eissa on Saturday. Aggressive? Drugs? Okay, it’s just too depressing for me to picture a pacifier sitting on the same table as coke dust. So instead I’m going to choose to believe Wissam aggressively popped several Advils to deal with the headache of listening to Raffi sing about that damn baby beluga for the 30th time.
