LOS ANGELES, Feb. 25 (UPI) -- U.S. pop star Janet Jackson confirmed Monday she married Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana last year.

"The rumors regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year, we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony," the couple said in an exclusive statement to TV's "Entertainment Tonight."
