There has been much speculation within recent months about the relationship status of Janet Jackson and Jermaine Dupri, who broke up in 2009 after dating for seven years. Jermaine has been posting about his ex on social media during the course of her State of the World Tour and has even commented on how good of a show she has been putting on.
On December 17, Janet Jackson and her crew wrapped up the United States leg of the tour, celebrating at STK restaurant. At the afterparty in Atlanta, Janet was reportedly seen hanging out with Dupri. “They were cuddled up and holding hands,” a source told US Weekly. The couple is “back together and in love.”
Janet and Jermaine’s rekindled flame comes after her split from her husband and father of her 11-month-old son, Wissam Al Mana. Mana and Jackson were married for five years and divorced in April of 2017. In the past, Janet revealed that Jermaine was one of her closest friends, but during the course of her allegedly tumultuous marriage, the two had no communication with one another.
After her split, it is said that “Jermaine reached out,” to Janet. They have been reconnecting for months according to a source, and they are finally at a point where they rekindled their past relationship.
