Ms. Jackson is worth a whole lotta dough. Janet Jackson recently joined the ranks of Madonna, Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg and others — with Variety recently confirming that the singer-actress, 47, is officially a billionaire. The late Michael Jackson's most famous sibling racked up the impressive total via multiple channels: Making a reported $458 million from concert tours, $304 million from acting roles in films like The Nutty Professor and Poetic Justice, $260 million in album sales, and $81 million in sponsorships.

As it happens, the "Miss You Much" singer isn't the only billionaire in her household: She recently wed Wissam Al Mana, a Qatari retail tycoon.

Dating since 2010, Jackson and Al Mana, 37, managed to wed in a "quiet, private and beautiful ceremony" last year — and the music superstar shot down reports that they had an "extravagant" bash.

Next up, if Jackson has her way? "She wants kids," a source told Us Weekly. "If she can't have them, she will adopt."
