Despite prior reports that Jermaine Dupri and Janet Jackson's rocky relationship was on hold and they'll "be back together soon", In Touch magazine suggests that the hold button has been released and Jermaine has moved on.
The good folks over at Celebitchy got a hold of the magazine and transcribed the story:
On August 14, the 36-year-old music executive was spotted getting cozy with Deal or No Deal model Claudia Jordan, 36, at the airport in his hometown of Atlanta.
“They looked like a couple,” a fellow passenger on their flight to LA tells In Touch. “During the flight, they were flirty and he seemed very into her. He was making her laugh and smile. There was never a moment when they didn’t talk.”
An insider says that Jermaine “has moved on pretty easily” and that Janet’s hopes of having a baby with him are now dashed. Janet, 43, had hoped to raise a family with Jermaine and recently revealed that her that her doctor encouraged her to freeze her eggs for a future pregnancy.
“I’d love to have children,” she’s said. “It’s just up to Jermaine, what he wants to do.”
Yet as recently as February, Jermaine was dropping hints that his relationship was in trouble. At a party in Beverly Hills, he brushed off a question about marriage and babies saying “That is future thinking.”
According to the insider, even after dating for seven years, Jermaine still wasn’t ready to commit to Janet and wanted to keep playing the field: “He isn’t ready for a family or to settle down.”
