Janet Jackson sure is good at keeping a low profile when she wants to!

The 46-year-old singer-actress finally confirmed Monday on her website that she and billionaire beau Wissam Al Mana were married in 2012.

"The rumors regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true," the couple said in a joint statement. "Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony."

"Our wedding gifts to one another were contributions to our respective favourite children's charities," they added. "We would appreciate that our privacy is respected and that we are allowed this time for celebration and joy. With love, Wissam and Janet."

This is the third marriage for Janet, who was married to James DeBarge (1984) and René Elizonda, Jr. (from 1991 to 2000).

Congrats on this happy news!

Entertainment Tonight was the first to report Janet and Wissam's nuptials.
