Janet Jackson On Bedrest
The latest tabloid reports claim that Janet is in a “life or death” battle to save her unborn child.
Faced with a high-risk pregnancy, the 50-year-old pop star is following doctors’ orders and praying she’ll deliver a healthy baby, sources told Star.
The “Control” singer is now on bed rest, and fears developing serious complications, such as preeclampsia and gestational diabetes.
We haven’t carried a whole bunch of babies but we are pretty sure that nearly every pregnant woman has these same fears, particular pregnant women over 35.
Still, the latest reports claim she is pretty much on strict bedrest and only allowed to be up and about for a few hours a day:
“Janet has been told by her doctors that she can only be on her feet for a maximum of two hours a day because of her high-risk pregnancy at 50,” said a source.
“The rest of the time, she either stays in bed or sits in a chair with her legs elevated.”
Janet’s husband, Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana, 41, is so determined to have an heir that he’s arranged for her doctors to come to their home, confided the source.
“Janet is in London trying to take things slow until the baby is born,” dished an insider. “She understands there are risks because of her age. She’s doing everything the doctors tell her to do.”
Wissam and Janet can afford the best of care — of course their doctor comes to her — it’s only right. Do you think the tabs are blowing Janet’s “pregnancy complications” out of proportion?
