The notoriously private Control singer, who secretly married the Qatari-born retail entrepreneur during a hush-hush ceremony in 2012, has been photographed on numerous occasions wearing traditional Muslim women’s clothing – a black jilbab and a black hijab.
However, Sexpot Gwen Rogers, a well-known Washington, D.C. based stripper and nude model has confirmed to Radar Online that she dated Al Mana.
The model, who graced the pages of Playboy five times including the Women of Washington issue in 1988, said that she met Al Mana when he was a student at George Washington University.
“Yes, Wissam and I dated. He was a great guy, very private,” Rogers said. Rogers was shocked when she heard the news that her ex-lover had married the Rhythm Nation singer. She said that she heard the news on the radio and wished the couple for their future.
According to sources, 37-year-old Al Mana may be a grown man and married now, but his devout, close-knit family won’t be pleased when they learn about his past relationship with a woman like Rogers.
The source said Rogers may be a nice lady, but the fact that Al Mana even had a relationship with a woman like that is not going to sit right with his family.
