JANET dumpS long-TIME boyfriend

Janet Jackson, pictured, has confirmed she has split from boyfriend Jermaine Dupri.

The singer admitted during a US radio interview that she didn't keep in touch with any of her ex-lovers apart from Dupri.

Speaking on Atlanta's Bert Show, Jackson said: "I'm not the type of girl that stays in touch with your ex like that. But Jermaine is one of my best friends. I love him to death. We're still connected. We're still good friends. We still talk."

Jackson, 43, was reported to have ended her seven-year relationship with Dupri, 37, after the death of her pop superstar brother Michael in June.

At the time, it was claimed the All For You singer decided to call time on the romance because she felt suffocated by her lover. - Bang
