Things got heated this week between Power 105.1′s morning crew and Jermaine Dupri after he was asked about his relationship with Kandi of R&B group, Xscape.
“I never dated her [Kandi]. I never said nothing about dating her,” Dupri explained on the popular New York radio show before host Angela Yee argued the contrary. Yee revealed on air that Kandi told her directly that she had carried on relations with Dupri in the past, something he denies. “Nah, we didn’t [have sex]. She said that? I mean, she’s a reality star now so you gotta watch out.”
During the interview, Dupri also explained why he got a tattoo of his ex-girlfriend, Janet Jackson. “Janet’s a part of my life … I’m tattoo’ed up … Before I had a tattoo, my mother said ‘Why you got all these white people on you that you don’t know?’ That’s a crazy question if somebody ask you that. [I thought] I date somebody that’s famous. Let me make a tattoo.”
The super producer also shot down rumors that his relationship with Ms. Jackson ended because he cheated on her with a stripper. “People just make up anything, right? We was together nine years, that’s a LONG time. To be dating somebody. I’m a young dude, I’mma leave it at that. I’m a young dude in the entertainment industry.”
