Despite the temporary split following her brother Michael Jackson‘s death in June, Janet Jackson and longtime lover Jermaine Dupri are back on and closer than ever. “They hope to walk down the aisle after the first of the year,” a source tells OK!. The insider also revealed Jermaine, 37, sends Janet, 43, gifts like jewelry during their time apart.
The Jackson family is thrilled about the reunion, says the insider.
“They’re keeping their fingers crossed that Jermaine will be an official part of the family.”
The couple broke up so that Janet could have time and space to grieve for her brother. They maintained an amicable relationship and friendship. The couple went to fashion shows together during Milan Fashion Week in September.
