After splitting from her husband amongst allegations of abuse, Janet Jackson has been on her world tour putting on a hell of a show.
But rumor has it that an ex may be knocking at the door now that the R&B and pop legend is single again.
Janet Jackson and Jermaine Dupri were in a long term relationship for seven years and broke up in 2009. The two reportedly reconnected after she left soon-to-be ex-husband, Wissam Al Mana.
Janet welcomed a son, Eissa Al Mana, four months prior to the split.
It appears, though, that despite the fact that the two of them are reconnecting, they are far from getting back together. They obviously have a lot of history and love between the two of them that accumulated from their time together. But that doesn’t mean she’s itching to jump into a new relationship so soon.
An insider revealed that Janet is very much single but that she is very close with Jermaine. The two of them reportedly share a “beautiful bond”. It’s unclear whether that bond will be fully rendered and brought to the place it once was, but for now, the two have been seen together a few times and have kept in contact throughout the constant travel required for her tour.
Right now, her focus is strictly on putting on a great show night after night and being a hands-on mother. Her son is with her as she tours the country. She spends much of the day with him and he’s asleep by the time her show starts in the evening.
Due to the speculation running rampant, a source revealed that although the exes are friendly and communicate, they aren’t talking about getting back together anytime soon.
“Janet is really not in a position to get involved with someone at this time. She is open though for something more down the line. They are in the talks of working on some new projects,” the source revealed.
So there may be some new music in the works before an all-out love connection for Janet and Jermaine. Only time will tell.
