Janet Jackson and Jermaine Dupri Together (Just Not Married)

Originally posted 11/09/2009 10:30AM

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."

After last Friday's devastating plane crash that killed four people and critically injured DJ AM and Travis Barker, Jermaine Dupri says his friend Barker is doing well.

"He's doing good, he's gonna be alright. He's just got a lot of healing to do," Dupri, who visited the former Blink 182 drummer in the hospital last Sunday, told PEOPLE exclusively Thursday night.

Dupri, who was celebrating his 36th birthday at Chicago's The Underground Nightclub after attending a concert by girlfriend Janet Jackson, said that Barker is also doing well emotionally.

"He's supposed to send a message out to everybody in a couple of days to let everybody know that he's feeling better," he said. "He's definitely feeling the love from everyone."

Originally posted 04/10/2008 10:15AM

Janet Jackson's boyfriend Jermaine Dupri – who announced Thursday that he's heading up brand-new record label, TAG Records – tells PEOPLE that Jackson has fully recovered from the illness that forced her to cancel an appearance on Saturday Night Live last month.

"She's 100-percent better now," says Dupri. "She was really sick. She had bronchitis." But the singer is back on track: "She's in Japan right now. She's better and doing all the promotion that she didn't get to do because she was sick when the album launched."

Janet Jackson: 'I Might Be Allergic to Marriage'

Originally posted 02/13/2008 07:50AM

Friends and family are urging Janet Jackson to get hitched and have kids. But don't expect the pop star – who has been dating record producer Jermaine Dupri since 2002 – to settle down any time soon.

"So many people were putting pressure on [Jermaine], then they started pressuring me," the singer told The Insider. "Everybody would ask us about it – even friends."

But Jackson, who has been married twice before – to James DeBarge (from 1984 to 1985) and to Rene Elizondo (from 1986 to 1999) – isn't in any hurry.
