Sources say Janet Jackson is engaged. Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana "gave her a huge expensive ring" earlier this year... she's afraid it will get lost, so she keeps it locked up," claims a source. The luxury brand mogul, whose family businesses include Harrods Department Store in London, will spare no expense on his nuptials to Janet, set for spring in Qatar. The affair "will cost millions," revealed a Jackson insider. "He is flying in all of Janet's friends and family on private jets."
