Janet Jackson’s boyfriend: “We’re not pregnant”


Since canceling several of her tour dates due to a nasty-sounding chronic illness, singer Janet Jackson has been the subject of relentless pregnancy speculation. Now, her boyfriend, music producer Jermaine Dupri, is issuing an emphatic denial regarding the state of his girlfriend’s uterus.

Call off the bump watch: Janet Jackson, 42, is not pregnant.

Reports picked up in the New York Daily News and on PerezHilton.com are not true, Jackson’s boyfriend, Jermaine Dupri, 36, tells Usmagazine.com exclusively.

“Does Perez know that lying destroys the credibility of a blogger?” Dupri quipped to Us on Sunday.

Rumors began to swirl after Jackson canceled a string of tour dates in October due to a mystery illness.

Still, that doesn’t mean Jackson and Dupri aren’t excited about starting a family in the future.

“I’d love to have children,” the singer has told Us. “It’s just up to Jermaine, what he wants to do.”

Jackson also spoke about motherhood in an interview with Sister 2 Sister magazine.

“Everyone tells me that there will never be a good time, that I will always be busy, but I just think when the stars are aligned it will happen,” she revealed.

As for Perez Hilton?

The blogger tells Us, “I didn’t say that Janet was pregnant, but if or when she is, I am sure she will make a great mother.”

That’s an interesting denial from Perez, considering this entry on his website, entitled “Janet Jackson pregnant?” with a picture of Jackson with one of his trademark drawings of a stick figure fetus over her stomach. It’s hard to know what’s going on with Janet – this is a woman who was secretly married and didn’t tell anyone until she filed for divorce! I suppose that if Jackson and Dupri aren’t telling the truth about her pregnancy, we’ll find out soon enough. If there’s one thing I know, it’s that baby bellies have a hard time keeping secrets.

    The media needs to quit thinking these aging stars are pregnant every time they walk out of a restaurant with a swollen stomach from a big dinner. Obviously Janet and Anniston have no intention of getting pregnant. Quit boring us with these repetitive pregnancy nonsense rumors.

    I hate it when a boyfriend or husband does the bump-denying. But yeah, I hope Janet doesn’t contribute to the next generation of Jackson-family scandals.

    She needs to get with it already, she 42 and not getting any younger, she talks as if she has another 20 years to consider getting pregnant.

  6. devilgirl says:

    She’d be smart to just play the doting aunt and nix having kids. Pets are easier and more grateful!

  7. Not that I’m impressed a lot, but this is a lot more than I expected for when I found a link on Digg telling that the info is quite decent. Thanks.

    People think they know me, but they dont. Not really. Actually, I am one of the loneliest people on earth. I cry sometimes, because it hurts. It does. To be honest, I guess you could say that it hurts to be me.
