[WATCH] Jermaine Dupri Reveals How He Snagged Janet Jackson

Jermaine Dupri is finally revealing how he pulled the legendary Janet Jackson who he dated in the past for seven years. For years fans looked at the two celebrities wondering how a beautiful beauty like Janet would choose Dupri.

The always straight-forward– the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast aired their latest episode with Curren$y and Jermaine Dupri who are promoting their upcoming For Motivational Use Only album. During the sit-down, cohost Wallo asked the multi platinum producer how he pulled a superstar like Janet Jackson.

It wasn’t about [that],” JD said around the 48-minute mark of the interview below when Gillie implied the producer tried to woo the pop star with beats. “I wasn’t with no music sh*t. I was just on some like hang out.”


“I never wanted to produce her,” JD added. “We got in an argument about me not producing her because she was around me watching everybody else get hit records. I never wanted her to think that’s what my agenda was. ’Cause so many people was saying that…When Janet met me she got picked up from the airport in a [Bentley] Continental T.”

Jermaine Dupri and Janet Jackson began dating in 2002 until finally calling it quits in 2009. Back in 2017, there were reports that they might be getting back together, which turned out to be false. Last January, Jermaine admitted during the Janet Jackson docu-series that aired on Lifetime and A&E, him “being reckless” ultimately led to the end of their almost decade-long relationship.
