Miss Jackson is always in control! Janet Jackson is reportedly in talks with Netflix for a documentary series about life after her divorce and new journey as a new mother.

A source from The Sun said that though Jackson kept a low-profile after her divorce from billionaire husband, Wissam Al Mana, she is now ready to put herself and life out there for the world to see, but in her own words, “Janet has been fiercely private about her life in the past but feels the need to keep her fans in the loop with what life has been like since she went into hiatus ten years ago.”

It’s true; Jackson has been actively keeping her fans in the loop and being transparent with her life through social media. For example, she recently announced the name change of her once-named “Unbreakable” tour, now known as the “State of the World” tour and that the tour was back on, after a short hiatus to have her baby boy, Eissa.

“The show will run as a ten-part documentary and will feature recording ­sessions in the studio, co-parenting her child with Wissam and preparing for the European and Asian legs of her tour. Netflix [is] negotiating a big sum for the rights to the show as they expect it to perform well,” the source added about the Netflix doc in the works.

Given the myriad of ways Janet Jackson’s life has changed over the past several years, this will surely be an intriguing documentary to look forward to! Fingers crossed it all works out!
