The case is officially closed on Janet Jackson‘s fictitious missing person’s report.

The pop star, 48, and her husband, billionaire Wissam Al Mana, attended the Armani 40th anniversary dinner at Nobu in Milan, Italy, on Wednesday night – just weeks after her fans jokingly reported her missing on Twitter.

Jackson arrived at the party hand-in-hand with her husband, 39, wearing a hooded blazer with black pants and black platform sandals. The star-studded event was also attended by Tom Cruise, Sophia Loren, and Tina Turner.

Before this rare sighting, the That’s the Way Love Goes singer hadn’t been spotted since February, when she was photographed shopping for shoes in Milan.

Concerned over her whereabouts, Jackson’s fans created a phony missing person’s report that quickly went viral. “Seriously Janet, where the hell are you? We NEED you back. We miss you. Your fans miss you. THE MUSIC INDUSTRY NEEDS YOU,” it read. “Come back and show these young whippersnappers how it’s done!”
