Jermaine Dupri Sets the Record Straight on Those Janet Jackson Dating Rumors


Jermaine Dupri is speaking out to clarify rumors that he and Janet Jackson have rekindled their romance in the wake of her split from Wissam Al Mana.

He says that while they're still friends, they aren't dating.

via ET:

"I never knew us not to be friends. These stories are just all over the place," Dupri shared. "I never knew us not to be friends. People keep making up these stories."

Dating rumors began after Jackson, 51, was spotted having dinner the producer at STK Atlanta in December and, according to an eyewitness, they were "cuddled" up to one another and holding hands in the VIP area.

A source close to Jackson told ET at the time that their relationship is strictly platonic and it's only natural that she would reconnect with him in his hometown.

Dupri also shared with ET that he "spoke to Janet one time before she got on tour" and that he doesn’t know much "about how she's dealing with being a mom."

As far as Jackson's participation in the upcoming Super Bowl with Justin Timberlake, Dupri says she'll "probably not" be involved.
