The divorce battle between Janet Jackson and Al Wissam Al Mana is predicted to be a long, slow process

Just months after giving birth to baby boy, Eissa in January, Janet Jackson and her estranged husband were seen leaving the

Royal Courts of Justice in London on Thursday as they embark on a long, slow divorce battle.

The 51-year-old singer and Qatari billionaire husband reportedly split in April, just shortly after bringing their first child into the world.

Sources are speculating custody of little Eissa will be an issue - especially as she heads off on a statewide tour.

Jackson said in a message to her fans in a video - 

“I just want to keep it real with you guys for a second. Yes, I separated from my husband. We are in court. And the rest is in God’s hands.”

There’s been speculation Jackson could get a large million-dollar sum from the divorce - The New York Post reports she could score herself $US200 million from their prenup - plus more if they had a child.
