Janet Jackson & Jermaine Dupri Are Over


I know Janet Jackson and Jermaine Dupri were together for almost seven years but when I would see them together I never really got the feeling they were into each other. Hell, until they got together I thought Jermaine played for the home team.

Well now he can go back to doing what he was doing because the couple are over. No Jermaine at the memorial. No pictures of Janet and Jermaine consoling each other over the death of her brother. I think it has been over for a few months but because Janet is so secretive no one even thought to ask until Jermaine kept being a no show everywhere that Janet was during the past few weeks.

She probably would have kept it hidden until she found a new boyfriend. She is very good at that. It is tough in this town to be married for nine years and have no one know that until you get divorced. Jermaine was a producer on her last two CD's which did really poorly. Don't mix business and pleasure, especially when one of the people can fire the other or will be ordered to fire the other by a record company. Too much pressure.

Janet doesn't seem to age. How does she do that? Probably with avoiding close-ups of her face, right?

faux pas.

I just read this on Dlisted. I hate when that happens.

some other celebs need keep it under wraps like ms. jackson. she is good with keeping secrets.

Isabel said...

Everyone knew Ms. Jackson if you're nasty broke up with Jermaine. It's been said for a while they're just good friends. I think, with the death of Michael, her life is changing and she has different priorities now, so a new boyfriend may be a while off.

Dupri never seemed to be too classy. But I'm sure Janet must have plenty of issues, as everyone growing up in the Jackson family seems to.

There's lots of talk these days that Janet should be the one to raise Michael's children. As the single mother of one, I wish her luck being the single mother of three. You've got to really want that job to take it on.

She got tired of sleeping with a troll.

I didn't think he suited her anyway.

Syd said...

I always wondered if they weren't bearding for each other. He is one ugly dude, btw.

Pinky said...

I thought this was already widespread news? (but perhaps that's just because i am in atlanta.)
I did remember having seen this:

She finally realized he just didnt measure up!

Marina Ortiz said...

don't you mean single mother of four?

hotchacha said...

Yeah, four.

Queen Beatnik said...

Never understood why she would go out with Jermaine Dupri, or let him produce her music. She is a class act and deserves someone so much better than him.

Not sure if this happens to anyone else, but whenever I see or read anything about Janet Jackson the song 'Nasty' immediately pops into my head.

He looks like a weasel.

The seven year itch.

Or, if looked at another way, you calculate celeb's marriage in dog years and that's a heck of a long time.

At least Janet keeps her personal life under wraps -- if only Lohan, Paris, Mischa, and the rest of them would take notes!!

What do you mean single mother of 4?

It is said that Janet had a daughter many years ago that was raised by Janet's sister Reebie.

So that daughter plus MJ's three kids add up to four.

I like Janet... Dupri always struck me as a toad, blech.

I'm sure others have seen it by now, but ESPN's program, Outside the Lines, recently aired a video of former Dallas Cowboy, Adam "Pacman" Jones, out at the Las Vegas (ahem) gentlemen's club, Minxxx, in 2007, where there was a shooting, when Jones and his bodyguard were ejected from the club.

Jones said that he entered the club with 100,000 dollars, and began changing larger bills for smaller ones, and then showering the dancers with dollar bills, in an act that they call, "making it rain". BTW, Nelly can be briefly seen on video, joining on stage for part of these festivities. Of all people, Jermaine Dupri is there, and can be heard over the DJ's sound system in the video, admonishing the dancers that even though the money is "raining" on them, to not bend down and pick up the money until he tells them to get off of the stage.

Apparently after the video ends, by the bodyguards' account, when one of the dancers continued to bend over and pick up the money, Jones grabbed her by the hair and punched her in the face, for continuing to pick up the money. This brought over the bouncers and it was after Jones and his bodyguard were ejected that someone outside the club opened fire injuring one of the bouncers, the club manager, and a patron of the club.

And this is the guy Janet has been married to all this time..

Actually this is old news, they were broke up before Michael died.

I see the shallow people are all over the rags these days. Ugly? Troll? Since when was it a standard that you had to be gorgeous to date a gorgeous person? I'm not a Dupri groupie, but come on people! And to say that he brings nothing into the relationship shows your ignorance of his skills. Looks department? That's a matter of opinion, but no one can say that he isn't a first-rate producer. That's why they worked well together, the love of the music.
