Janet Jackson's estranged husband is suing her for more than $10 million, alleging that the singer reneged on an agreement to share property acquired before their 1991 marriage, according to the Associated Press.
Jackson and Rene Elizondo Jr. kept their marriage a secret, going public in early 1999 only to announce their separation. Elizondo claims that Jackson agreed to share the profits from her 1989 Rhythm Nation 1814 album, as well as other assets the couple acquired after 1987, according to the news service.
Elizondo filed the suit on Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, the news service said. Representatives for Elizando and Jackson could not be reached for comment.
Elizondo co-wrote 37 of Jackson's songs, including "That's the Way Love Goes" and "Black Cat", and directed the videos for "That's the Way Love Goes" and "Together Again."
