They may have split up over a decade ago, but that doesn’t mean Janet Jackson and Jermaine Dupri don’t wish each other well. Dupri celebrated his 49th birthday on September 23 and was honored by his ex via social media. Jackson, who has 3.8 million followers on Twitter, shared a throwback snapshot of the duo smiling together. Jackson appeared to have her hand placed on the back of Dupri’s head while he had his arm wrapped around her waist. “Sending luv to u today @jermainedupri,” the “Miss You Much” hitmaker wrote, adding a black heart emoji.
In just 13 hours, Jackson’s post gathered more than 11,000 likes and hundreds of comments. “I actually liked Janet with JD. They made a great couple,” one user tweeted. “A beautiful couple. Wish they stayed together,” another person shared. “That’s kind of you…just don’t pull a Bennifer on us,” a third joked. Of course, that fan is referring to the reunion of exes Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck.
Both Jackson and Dupri made headlines about a supposed reunion after Us Weekly insisted they were back together in 2017. However, Dupri quickly squashed those rumors. “All of this is a speculation I guess when someone gets single. The fans actually really want to see us back together, so people have been championing this, but none of this is actually true,” he said, per The Jasmine Brand. It’s nice to see the exes are still supportive of one another, regardless!
