Well, before that talk can pick up any more steam, a source tells E! News that folks can pump the breaks.
“Jermaine and Janet have remained friends through all these years and never lost touch. They had a period when they broke up and didn’t talk for a bit but overcame that and found friendship again,” the insider said. “Jermaine has a crazy love for Janet and they have been speaking more since the breakup. Janet and Jermaine trust each other and they have history.”
The source goes on to affirm that the two are just friends and nothing more.
“Janet is really not in a position to get involved with someone at this time,” the source explained. “She is open though for something more down the line. They are in the talks of working on some new projects.”
Janet is in the throws of her “State of the World” tour across the U.S., and her makeup artist Preston Meneses told E! what fans can expect when the singer arrives in their hometown.
“She is happy and is in good spirits. I think the world is going to get something really special from her,” he shared. “She’s really excited. We all are—a lot of us have been working together for years so when we come together, it’s just like being with your family and when you work with your family, things just come easy and it’s a wonderful experience. Right now, I just feel like the universe put us all together for another moment. I think it’s going to be a very successful tour.”
