(Reuters) - Singer Janet Jackson said on Monday that she married her Qatari businessman boyfriend last year, quashing media reports of upcoming nuptials.

Jackson, 46, the younger sister of the late singer Michael Jackson, was engaged to billionaire Wissam Al Mana, 37, last year but kept the news under wraps.

"The rumors regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony," Jackson and Al Mana said in a statement to Entertainment Tonight.

"Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favorite children's charities."

The American singer is known for keeping her private life from the media, rarely speaking out about her ex-husbands.

Next time she wants to take her act into the Qatar she won’t need a wardrobe malfunction. She’s already there.

Yep, a wardrobe malfunction over there can be far more probematic than an FCC fine.

Dunno, I kind of enjoyed the failure. All we got to see were two mamm's and the power pasties anyways.

If it was her first marriage, I MIGHT think it was for love, but 3 marriages and only 47 is repulsive. I think she believes marriage is a joke!

Wow, that's cold. Phil Collins at least sent his ex a fax.

We live in an age of readily available specialized and commoditized boob viewing. Adding such to a halftime presentation came off as more than a bit cheesy in an attention whoring sort of way.

Hopefully, he'll help her keep her wardrobe from "malfunctioning!"

Presumably, that will happen under her burkha.
