Singer Janet Jackson has reportedly converted to Islam. According to a source, the 50-year-old, who is expecting her first child with Wissam Al Mana -- whom she secretly married in 2012 -- has undergone a full conversion to the religion which her husband practices, reports

“When she’s visiting Wissam’s family in the Middle East, she wears no makeup, no hair extensions and keeps to traditional Muslim clothing,” the source told The Sun newspaper.

“She feels like she has found a home with her new religion. She has spent a great deal of time studying it,” the source added.

It comes as a stark change for Jackson, who previously appeared topless on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, and suffered a ‘wardrobe malfunction’ at the 2004 Super Bowl when Justin Timberlake ripped off part of her outfit which exposed her nipple.

The source added: “The days of raunchy dance moves and sexual lyrics are long gone.”
