Jackson has re-located to Los Angeles after living in London and Dubai during her marriage to Qatari multi-millionaire businessman Wissam Al Mana.
The couple announced their split after five years as husband and wife in April.

In May, Janet shared a personal video for fans clearing up the rumors surrounding her marriage and the future of her career.
'I just want to keep it real with you guys for a second,' the Control singer tells fans in a the video, which was posted to her official website and social media accounts.
'Yes, I separated from my husband. We are in court and the rest is in God's hands.'
The beginning of the video featured Jackson addressing her weight and reassuring fans it is her, telling them, 'I have put on quite a few since I had the baby.'
A male voice in the room said: 'More than a few.'
'Can you please be quiet, Randy?' Janet snapped back, presumably to her brother Randy who had been spotted with her in London after the birth of her son in January.

Of her baby, Janet gushed: 'I thank God for him you guys, he is so healthy. So beautiful, so sweet, so loving such a happy baby.'
She then spoke in baby talk to camera in the self-shot video, saying her son's name.
The All For You singer then revealed the reason for her message, which was teased with a mysterious two-day countdown on the front page of Janet's official website.
Jackson confirmed that she was resuming her oft-postponed Unbreakable World Tour from 2015.
'I'm continuing my tour as I promised. I'm so excited, you guys. I've decided to change the name of the tour to State Of The World Tour.'
The title of the tour is named after a socially conscious promo single from her 1989 album Rhythm Nation, which addresses homelessness, suicide and prostitution.

She assured fans: 'It's not about politics. It's about people, the world, relationships and just love.'
'I want to thank you guys for your patience, for all of your support throughout the years, thank you so much. I am so excited, I cannot wait to see you on stage.'
The Why Did I Get Married actress revealed to fans that the tour would resume on September 7th.
Jackson's longtime makeup artist Preston Meneses joined her as a dancer in the photo posted to social media on Monday.
Meneses has worked with Jackson for over 10 years and defended her against vicious face lift rumors after an appearance she made in 2014 at a Vogue fashion event in Dubai.
'Everyone's talking about the brow and how it's going up, and people are calling it a facelift,' Preston said, adding with a laugh: 'Not true at all - just me,' he told Extra.
