Janet Jackson Documentary Reveals Jermaine Dupri Cheated On The R&B Singer-Songwriter
Thanks to Lifetime’s Janet documentary, fans of Miss Jackson have been given a super-exclusive look into the 55-year-old recording artist’s life, and some of its most important events including her childhood growing up with Michael and her other brothers, her infamous Super Bowl incident with Justin Timberlake, and her split from 49-year-old Jermaine Dupri.
The fourth part of the doc aired on Saturday, January 29th, and left many viewers shocked as the record producer admitted to cheating on Jackson during their seven-year relationship. “One of the weird things is that dating Janet attracts other women – girls wanted to talk to me more because I was dating her… and I’m a man,” Dupri recalled.

The Velvet Rope hitmaker also spoke on her ex’s infidelity, saying, “I had heard he was cheating, but there were other things… I needed more than he was giving me.” The Indiana native called Dupri a “workaholic,” revealing that when he had had enough of his work for the day, he would head out to the club.
“I would ask him to carve out a little time for me,” Jackson told the camera. “I always felt that he didn’t have enough time for a girlfriend… I would say that world was his girlfriend.”
