Rumor has it that following her ugly divorce, Janet Jackson found love again. Now, the man in question, Jermaine Dupri, decided to finally address the speculations and tell us what is really going on between them!
First of all, he revealed that he and Janet have always been quite close.
‘I never knew us not to be friends. These stories are all over the place. People keep making up these stories,’ Dupri said, clearly denying that there is anything romantic between him and the singer.
Back in December, eyewitnesses apparently saw the two holding hands and cuddling in the VIP section of a restaurant.
Ever since then, rumors that they might be dating started floating around.
Dupri also talked about the fact that he doesn’t really know what she is going through as a new and single mom because they spoke ‘one time before she got on tour.’
Meanwhile, Dupri is set to show up at the Golden Spin Awards on February 22 in order to receive his Breaking Barriers Award.
‘It is me getting the opportunity to relive my childhood and the energy I put into DJ-ing, feeling like I did something with all that energy. DJ-ing was the very first thing I started before I started producing and I was rapping a bit, but DJ-ing took over my body. So for something to be a hobby that you feel inside, that you get an award for, that you get recognized for by the DJ community, is super exciting,’ Dupri shared.
Are you disappointed to learn that there is nothing but friendship between Jackson and Dupri?
