Randy Jackson, brother of Janet Jackson, has made explosive claims his sister suffered 'verbal abuse' and felt like a 'prisoner in her own home' during her marriage to London-based Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana.
Speaking to PEOPLE, the former Jackson 5 star says, 'Enough is enough. Janet's been through a lot with her divorce. I've been through a lot, we all have.'
The pair, who wed in 2012 and welcomed son Eissa on Jan. 3, have been in London courts since April, with the star confirming the split in a video posted to Twitter in that same month.
'Yes, I separated from my husband,' the 51-year-old said. In the same clip Jackson revealed she'd be resuming her State of the World tour which was previously postponed due to her pregnancy.
She continued, 'We are in court now and the rest is in God's hands.'
As for what led to the divorce, Randy, who has been regularly attending court proceedings with his sister, draws a vivid picture of what the stars life was like with Al Mana.
'It was quite an abusive situation,' Randy claims. 'It came on later in the relationship, verbal abuse and being [made to feel like] a prisoner in her own home. No pregnant woman needs to go through being called a bitch everyday.'
In a statement released to PEOPLE, attorneys for Al Mana say, 'Mr Al Mana is not going to dignify these particular and deeply hurtful allegations with a response. The breakdown of his marriage to Janet Jackson is a cause of great sadness to Mr Al Mana, and it is the wellbeing and privacy of their son, Eissa, that remains his sole focus.'
When asked how the star is doing now, Randy says it's been tough, noting that the famed 'Control' singer has been breaking down in tears on stage. The most recent breakdown being in Houston last Saturday night while performing her song 'What About'.
'What you saw in Houston, it was her situation coming out, what she's been going through.' Moreover, he claims, 'The abuse is still going on. She has custody and he of course allowed her to bring the baby on tour, but it's constant harassment.'
