Janet Jackson & Jermaine Dupri: It’s Over!

janet jackson jermain dupri Janet Jackson & Jermaine Dupri: Its Over!

Usmagazine is reporting that Janet Jackon and Jermaine Dupri have official split from thier 7 yr. relationship.

On July 7, Michael Jackson‘s family ­gathered to celebrate him at his much-watched memorial service.

Noticeably absent?

Janet ­Jackson‘s longtime music-exec boyfriend, Jermaine Dupri. (A pal says Dupri skipped the memorial because he “doesn’t attend funerals.”)

And for good reason. “His friends are telling people it’s over,” a source tells the  new issue of Us Weekly, on stands now.

Echoes another: “They have been moving in different directions for a while.”

So what drove Jackson, 43, and Dupri, 36, apart after nearly seven years?

“You shouldn’t mix business with pleasure,” a mutual pal explains. (Dupri produced several tracks on her last two CDs.) “Janet felt their lives were too crossed and they should have kept things sepa­rate.”

Plus, the polar opposites were never too compatible.

“Jermaine likes to be out there, mingling with everybody, and ­Janet’s more shy.” (And secretive: She kept her nine-year marriage to Rene Elizondo hidden until their 2000 ­divorce.)

Meanwhile, Jackson is still deeply mourning the death of her big brother.

“She’s devastated,” an insider says. “She’s busy caring for Michael’s kids. Janet’s the family’s backbone.”

Jackson’s rep couldn’t be reached.


I hope this is not true, I was actually looking forward to seeing these two walk down the isle.

  1. Wow, I was hoping they would make it.

  2. I first caught wind of this story yesterday while briefly watching ‘Access Hollywood’ and I did the OMG!

    Now I will come out and say it… Jermaine not attending the funeral of his significant other is kinda wrong and in a way disrespectful. Not only was Michael her big brother but he was an uber-mega-star and JD should’ve been there to lend his support to Janet. Dude was plain wrong and Janet did good in leavin’ his midget a**!

  3. Sorry to hear that

  4. what about the tatoo on his rib cage?
