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.
