Randy Jackson has claimed his sister Jane Jackson was verbally abused by estranged husband Wissam Al Mana.
The 61-year-old also claims she was made to feel like ‘a prisoner in her own home’ in a sensational new interview.
Randy, whose full name is Steven Randall, made the claims to People magazine, four months after Janet and Wissam announced they were divorcing.
‘There’s a lot of pain. Janet’s been through a lot with her divorce. I’ve been through a lot, we all have,’ Randy said.
‘It came on later in the relationship, verbal abuse and being [made to feel like] a prisoner in her own home.’
He then revealed how Janet allegedly had abuse hurled at her daily, adding: ‘No pregnant woman needs to go through being called a bitch everyday. There were things like that. That’s what she went through.’
Randy also insists that Janet is still being abused throughout the divorce proceedings.
‘The abuse is still going on,’ he said. ‘She has custody and he of course allowed her to bring the baby on tour, but it’s constant harassment. This tour almost didn’t happen, but by the grace of God we’re here and we’re very prayerful.’

Wissam, 42, has so far declined to comment on the allegations of abuse.
His lawyers told People on his behalf that he finds the claims ‘deeply hurtful’, saying: ‘Mr. Al Mana is not going to dignify these particular and deeply hurtful allegations with a response.
‘The breakdown of his marriage to Janet Jackson is a cause of great sadness to Mr. Al Mana, and it is the wellbeing and privacy of their son, Eissa, that remains his sole focus.’
Janet and Wissam married in 2012, welcoming their first son together – baby Eissa Al Mana, eight months – in January.
Janet confirmed their marriage was over in a video post in May.
The new mum posted a video on Twitter and Instagram telling fans that she and the father of her baby had decided to go their separate ways, and that the next step is ‘in God’s hands’.
The 50-year-old said: ‘I just want to keep it real with you guys for a second. Yes, I separated from my husband. We are in court and the rest is in God’s hands.’
