Janet Jackson may be single, but she's far too busy to mingle.
Following recent rumors that the "All for You" singer was getting back together with old flame Jermaine Dupri, a source told E! News on Thursday, Sept. 21, 2017 that the two are just friends.
"Jermaine and Janet have remained friends through all these years and never lost touch. They had a period when they broke up and didn't talk for a bit but overcame that and found friendship again," the insider said. "Jermaine has a crazy love for Janet and they have been speaking more since the breakup. Janet and Jermaine trust each other and they have history."
But the source was quick to clarify that the two are in fact not in a relationship. "Janet is really not in a position to get involved with someone at this time," the source explained. "She is open though for something more down the line. They are in the talks of working on some new projects."
According to E! News, the pop icon is focusing her efforts on continuing her State of the World Tour as a single mom. "She is happy and is in good spirits. I think the world is going to get something really special from her," Jackson's makeup artist Preston Meneses said. "She's really excited. We all are — a lot of us have been working together for years so when we come together, it's just like being with your family and when you work with your family, things just come easy and it's a wonderful experience. Right now, I just feel like the universe put us all together for another moment. I think it's going to be a very successful tour."
As Nicki Swift previously reported, the "Control" singer, 50, quietly separated from her estranged husband Wissam Al Mana, 42, in April 2017. The two share one son, Eissa, who was born in January of this year. Despite calling it quits, the two have been co-parenting amicably.
