Janet Jackson is reportedly in talks with Netflix to do a fly-on-the-wall documentary series about her life after her divorce and her efforts as a new mother. Although Janet has been keeping a low profile since the split from Wissam Al Mana in April, a source told The Sun that she is ready to put herself out there: “Janet has been fiercely private about her life in the past but feels the need to keep her fans in the loop with what life has been like since she went into hiatus ten years ago. The show will run as a ten-part documentary and will feature recording sessions in the studio, co-parenting her child with Wissam and preparing for the European and Asian legs of her tour. Netflix [is] negotiating a big sum for the rights to the show as they expect it to perform well,” the source added.
