Not only was Janet Jackson’s wedding to Rene Elizondo a secret, their nine-year-long marriage was kept in hiding as well. Elizondo, labeled Jackon’s boyfriend during the period, made their status public when he filed for divorce in September 1998. “We decided early on that we wanted to keep our private life private,” Elizondo, who wrote many of Jackson’s songs and directed several of her videos, told Reuters at the time. “I’m as surprised as you are that we managed to keep it a secret.” This was not Jackson’s first secret marriage. In late 1984, Jackson eloped with childhood friend and fellow R&B singer James DeBarge. They divorced shortly afterwards, and the marriage was annulled in mid-1985.
