Jermaine Dupri is shutting down rumors that he and Janet Jackson are rekindling their romance.
Last month, reports hit the web that the former lovebirds were getting cozy while at STK Atlanta. Janet, who was celebrating the close of her State of the Wold tour, apparently “cuddled” and held hands with Dupri while in a VIP section.
The rumors, however, turned out to be completely and utterly false. During an appearance on Power 105.1’s Breakfast Club this week, Jermaine shut the chatter all the way down.
“I don’t know anything about it,” Jermaine said when asked about the dating gossip. He then explained that he and Janet have always “been friends.” He then suggested, “Nobody has ever seen us together … it’s just speculation I guess when somebody gets single.”
The two dated for almost seven years until their shocking split in 2009.
Jackson, who earlier this year split from her husband of just five years, Wissam Al Mana, has remained mum
