After rumors that she'd split from longtime love Jermaine Dupri, Janet Jackson has confirmed they are no longer together by referring to him as her "ex" in a radio interview.

Janet, 43, admitted on Atlanta's Bert Show that she has a very short list of ex-boyfriends with whom she's still in touch, reports the New York Daily News.

"I'm not the type of girl that stays in touch with your ex like that," the "That's the Way Love Goes" singer, 43, said before admitting that hip hop producer, Jermaine, 37, is an exception.

"Jermaine is one of my best friends," she said. "I love him to death. We're still connected. We're still good friends. We still talk."

The couple reportedly broke off their seven-year relationship after the death of her brother Michael Jackson this summer.

Would twice-married Janet wed again? "I don't know if I'll get married again," she told Harper's Bazaar magazine. "I'll put it like this: If God wants me to, then I will. I've had people ask me out. I haven't entertained any offers thus far, but I'm locking myself in my work right now."
