[artist id="450135"]Jermaine Dupri[/artist] wants to clear up some misconceptions. The biggest one is yet another report that his long-time girlfriend is pregnant: Not true, he says.
The second is that the couple has broken up: again, not true.
Dupri took the unusual move of publicly denying these two rumors — the first of which started when Life & Style magazine recently ran a cover story whose headline read "[artist id="1090"]Janet Jackson[/artist] Tells Friends: Yes, I'm "Pregnant!" — by blogging about them on Thursday.
"As you all know Janet is a very private person. The only reason you see her as much as you do on my YouTube vlog is because of me LOL," Dupri wrote. 'But I hear y'all and your questions. So here you have it ... No, she is not pregnant and yes, we're still together. It baffles me how y'all let these blogs and magazines control your lifes [sic]. That's why I created global14.com, so when ever hear sh-- about me you can come right here and get the truth."
While rumors about the couple's reported splits have bubbled up repeatedly over the years, the whispers about Jackson's alleged pregnancy intensified in October when Jackson postponed a number of dates on her Rock Witchu Tour. Some of the dates were later made up, with Jackson's doctors saying they recommended she take time off to deal with a bout of migrane-associated vertigo.
