Janet Jackson's Messy Separation & Custody Battle With Estranged Husband Gets Uglier — Video

Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana are battling it out over their 17-month-old son, Eissa. The situation got even messier over the weekend after a nanny for the Qatari billionaire claimed she was terrified by his behavior.

The 52-year-old singer called police over the weekend while Eissa was with his father at the Nobu hotel in Malibu, California.

A spokesperson stated, "Deputies were there [and] called to the scene. They decided the child was okay and they left."

TMZ reported Monday that Janet told police she was concerned her ex-husband may have been using drugs around their son.

A source stated, "The concern was that his erratic behavior was tied to that." 

However, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s office claimed there "was zero suspicion of drugs being used."

Janet's brother, Randy Jackson, stated that his sister called police after the nanny became frightened by Al Mana's behavior which she believed was aggressive. 

Randy claims the nanny was "terrified by his behavior and locked herself in a bathroom, so she could contact Janet."

The Blast reported that the nanny was angry over Al Mana's refusal to provide her with the hotel room’s WiFi password. 

Al Mana is reportedly unhappy with his custody arrangement with Jackson, which states he must have a caregiver present when he spends time with their son. 

A source said, "Janet feels out of control during Wissam’s visitations with their baby and worries nonstop."

"Janet and Wissam are on opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to raising baby Eissa, and this has made their split even worse. She wants a Western world upbringing, and Wissam would like his son to learn his upbringing," the source adds.

Jackson quietly married Al Mana in 2012 and the pair kept their relationship out of the spotlight.

Jackson and Al Mana’s split in April 2017, about three months after they welcomed their son, Eissa, in January.

The couple's divorce has yet to be finalized due to Janet and Wissam being able to come to an agreement. 

An insider stated, "They cannot be in the same room together and, at this point, there’s no mediation. There seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to this divorce. It has been really hard on the whole family."

Somebody come get Randy! It's enough going on without him stirring the pot.
