Jermaine Dupri addressed the rumors that he’s getting back together with the legendary singer, Janet Jackson, sister to the late Michael Jackson, AKA, the King Of Pop. The tabloids have been jumping all over the celebrity couple because many thought they were reconciling.
However, during an appearance on 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, Jermaine Dupri, in the flesh, revealed those are just rumors, and they’re not an item again.
In response to the allegations of their rekindled romance, Jermaine said he doesn’t “know anything about it.” When asked if they were at least friends, Jermaine said they always have been.
He added, “I don’t know if we’ve ever not been friends,” and Jermaine claimed nobody has ever seen them together, so the speculation is merely a product of both of them being single.
If you’re disappointed that they’re not sparking up an old flame, don’t feel bad, because you’re not alone. Even Jermaine acknowledged many of their fans would probably want to see them back together, but “none of this stuff is actually true.”
Dupri rhetorically asked, “why would I hide?” and why would he sneak around with a woman that everyone in the world knows that he’s been with?
As you may know, Janet and Jermaine dated almost twenty years ago and eventually broke up in 2009. A source close to the couple said to E! News that they started dating after she broke up with her ex, Wissam Al Mana, the Saudi billionaire.
A source speaking with Us Weekly previously said that Janet and Jermaine were “holding hands” at her after-party in Atlanta. The insider claimed they were getting cozy, but it looks like it wasn’t true.
