Though the status of their relationship is often a seesaw-ride of "are-they-or-aren't-they," Janet Jackson and Jermaine Dupri are indeed together, PEOPLE has confirmed.

The couple were rumored to be broken up around the time of Michael Jackson's death when Dupri did not attend the funeral services. Jackson herself fueled rumors when she told Harper's Bazaar that she was single.

"They never really broke up," a source tells PEOPLE. "Jermaine wanted to give her some space when Michael died."

In fact, the blog world says the two are so happy that they are planning a wedding. And with whispers of possible nuptials reaching fever pitch, Dupri doesn't exactly deny the rumors, but he does say he's heard them plenty of times before.

"They've been saying that for years and you don't see a ring on my finger," he told PEOPLE on Friday at a Prive Las Vegas party to launch his Nu Pop Movement watch line. "I guess it just sounds good to have that rumor this time of the year or something."
