First Jon and Kate. Now Jermaine and Janet.
Music impressario and Atlanta native Jermaine Dupri and singer Janet Jackson are reportedly splitting.
The National Enquirer says Jackson and Dupri, who have been together for four years and were reportedly pondering marriage, began battling over her recent tour — managed by Dupri — which was a dismal failure, with a string of canceled concerts due to poor ticket sales.
The Enquirer, citing unnamed sources, said the fading superstar, 36, has moved out of Dupri's Los Angeles home.
"Janet and Jermaine finally hit a wall," the source was quoted as saying. "They were fighting over his management of her career. In the end, she decided to make a break."
Whatever their future, Dupri won't be able to easily forget Jackson. The owner of Atlanta's So So Def records recently revealed he has Jackson's image — her hands clasped prayer-like, head covered in a Madonna-esque pose — tatooed along his lower right side, from chest to waistband.
