Janet Jackson And Jermaine Dupri Might Be A Thing Again

This news is making me very excited. If that picture above proves anything, it’s that Janet Jackson was clearly at her best, fashion-wise, during the Jermaine Dupri years. Meanwhile, this news is probably making Jermaine Dupri very excited because it’s the first time in a while that his name has been trending and it has nothing to do with being broke.

Janet and Jermaine dated from 2002 to 2009. Four years later she got married to Wissam Al Mana, a relationship which has morphed into a messy divorce and custody battle. According to Bossip, Janet is drying her tears on Jermaine’s shoulder (her poor back must be so sore from bending over that low).

Sources claim that Janet and Jermaine have “recently reunited” and that things are “heating back up.” Janet is currently on her State of the World Tour. Bossip points out that Jermaine was in Los Angeles on Sunday night for VH1 Hip-Hop Honors, and that Janet is scheduled to perform in Anaheim on Saturday.

Janet and Jermaine haven’t been a thing in eight years. I hope it’s not awkward for either of them, especially when it comes to the subject of Jermaine’s giant Janet tattoo. I don’t know if his tattoo still looks the same or if he attempted to make it look less like Janet. But I really hope for his sake that he didn’t. Because literally the only way he could have changed it was to add wrinkles and claim it was a tattoo of Emperor Palpatine, and that’s bound to be an awkward conversation.

    Thank you! That’s what I just posted. What’s money to her if Jermaine is a great partner?

  2. ThenTheLordMadeYolettie

    But in what way? A hotter guy? A richer guy? The guy she’s divorcing was hotter and richer and taller and we see how that went. Maybe Jermaine is good for her. They spent 7 years together….

    Then again, she’s got so much money, if Jermaine is the dude that will be a step dad and hold her down and support her and listen and laugh together and cheer on her career/PR then enjoying life/money together shouldn’t be a huge issue. Now it’s the Deaner’s of the world that need to fuck off …

    I think it’s a slow news day and they are ramping up press for her new tour. Maybe they are friendly again, but Dupri is rumored to be part of the black gay mafia , whom “mentors” young male artists. usher, diddy, L.A. reid are all supposed members… who the fucks knows though.

  5. That pairing made the most sense out of all of Janet’s relationships.

    Right lol

    But I think Jermaine’s finally got that money situation under control… I think anyway.

  7. FunkAnarchy84 Ⓐ

    Damita Jo and Discipline were actually great albums (I don’t wanna speak of 20 Y.O. but it did have a few good tracks, including Enjoy).

    TBH, I think Jermaine was the best one of the four men Janet got involved with. As already mentioned: James was a crackhead, Rene was a verbally abusive prick who tried to claim he wrote all of Janet’s hits (something Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis laughed hilariously about when it came up), Wissam was possibly a controlling and abusive prick. Jermaine was probably the only guy who actually treated Janet like she needed to be treated. Only thing messy was the money situation and that is what caused them to break up.

    That said, I don’t know if I buy them becoming a couple again. Maybe they’re just friends again.

  9. I just want Janet to be happy. Girl has been through enough. If Jermaine makes you happy Janet, then go for it. Who cares if he’s broke. If you love him, or even just like him a lot, if he makes you happy, if you guys can laugh together, then go for it girl. https://uploads.disquscdn.c

    She look pretty in the picture

  11. Yeah I pretty much ran like my ass was on fire. People couldn’t believe I left this gorgeous, charming man.

  12. I didn’t love Damita Jo. I would LOVE for her to have a comeback that was like RN, VR or Janet!! So amazing!

  13. I’m sorry to hear that. <3 Glad you’re out of that, sounds like hell.

    This is an old picture……..

  15. parissucksliterally

    And her nose now is a third of the size of the one in the picture.

  16. parissucksliterally

    Her nose was still a normal size here. She looked great.

  17. My first husband was an extremely good looking man. He looked like a model or a movie star. He also used to scream in my face if I didn’t do what he said and was insanely jealous. It lasted one year. Looks don’t matter at all either way.

  18. Immodest Goddess

    No girl.


  19. I have always been a sucker for a reunion of old loves. I hope it’s true, and I hope that she’s happy.

  20. Dammit Janet at least release another album before you fall back in love! People want a Velvet Rope or a Rhythm Nation sequel! I’ll settle for an All For You sequel as well.

  21. He probably was the best relationship she ever had.
    James was on crack.
    Rene abused her and fucked her friends.
    Jermaine gave her Damita Jo, 20 Y.O., and Discipline (to be fair I liked Discipline and some of the former albums but they are not as good as Rhythm Nation and Velvet Rope and Janet.)
    Wissam gave her Eissa at the cost of her freedom and control.

    I’d rather have 3 Janet albums rather than one album with little promo and shenanigans.

  22. Maybe she’s rebounding with someone familiar. I am going though a break up and I did the same thing with someone I dated years ago. Its nice to spend time with someone who knows you and get that attention. Hopefully she won’t rush into a relationship with him or anyone until she gets her house in order.

  23. Original Putas

    That’s a old pic because Janet’s three times that size now.

  24. My Cat Has 9 Loaves

    It’s nice to see her wearing something other than a king-size blanket. I wonder if her ex was so controlling she felt like she had to practically wear a burka.

    I used to be a big fan of Janet’s. I won’t get into why I’m not anymore, but I do think she was perhaps, her most true self when she was with Dupri. I honestly don’t think they’re dating again. I belive they are friends. They had a pretty good relationship back then. It probably serves them both well to be seen as a couple.
    I doubt Dupri will get cent one from her.
    Deadbeat parents suck.
