It's back on

Love reigns.

It looks like after eight years apart, Jermaine Dupri and Janet Jackson are back to being an item. Reports of their coupledom stem from Entertainment Tonight, who had eyes on a dinner date between Dupri and Jackson at STK Atlanta.

Their source said that the pair “cuddled” at the dinner table, which was filled out by Jackson’s brother Randy and former OutKast member Big Boi.

“STK was absolutely thrilled to have Janet Jackson in attendance,” another employee of the restaurant told ET. “It was a great night and she’s simply a pleasure.”

The dinner was a celebration of the end of Janet’s State of the World tour, and their supposed coziness confirms rumors that have been circling about the former couple for quite a while.

Reports from earlier this year claimed that Jermaine and Janet were rekindling their relationship following her divorce. Via our reporting on those rumors:

“A source close to both of them told E! that they are ‘getting close again.’ Apparently, Jermaine and Janet started chatting immediately after Janet split from her ex-husband Eissa Al Mana. The two have reportedly been ‘consistently in contact’ since then. The latter is dealing with an infant child and a new tour, so it’s easy to see how she might want to talk to somebody who knows her.”
