Everyone has that one that got away. In the case of Janet Jackson and producer Jermaine Dupri, there the one’s that can’t stay away.
Janet recently wrapped up the U.S. leg of her State of the World tour, and to celebrate, she threw a crazy after-party in Atlanta. Her surprise guest was none other than Jermaine Dupri. Onlookers at the function said they were definitely looking boo’ed up as they cuddled and held hands throughout the night. “They are 100 percent back together and in love,” an anonymous source told Us Weekly.
If you don’t know the back story, Janet and Jermaine dated for seven years. Following their breakup in 2009, Janet told Atlanta’s Bert Show, “Jermaine is one of my best friends. I love him to death. We’re still connected. We’re still good friends. We still talk…We’re there for one another. I think it will remain that way for the rest of my life.”
Reportedly, Janet had been keeping her distance from Jermaine while married to Qatari business man Wissam Al Mana (the couple had a son before announcing their divorce back in April.) Insiders say once their split was made public, JD reached out to check on his old friend and the rest was history.
Are we here for Janet and Jermaine giving love another try, or should they just keep things on friendly terms?
