Folks are convinced that Janet Jackson fled the toxic home of her billionaire husband to return to the clutches of ex-boyfriend Jermaine Dupri.

Right after the legendary singer’s final concert at Philips Arena in Atlanta, the star headed to her exclusive after party at STK restaurant, where a source says she spent some private time with her ex, Atlanta-native music producer Jermaine Dupri.

“They were in a private area at her exclusive tour wrap party,” a source tells People, adding that the pair “were cuddled up in a private booth holding hands.”

Jackson, 51 — who split from Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana in April and has been embroiled in a tough custody battle ever since — reportedly parted ways with Dupri, 45, back in 2009, after what the source calls a “bad breakup.”

“They didn’t speak for years until about a year ago,” the source told People. “[Dupri] felt like he had wronged her. But they reconnected and he was there for her as a friend while she was going through her messy breakup.”

While the source says the pair is not officially back together, there’s a sense that could change. “They are taking their time, getting to know each other again,” the source admits.

Janet gave birth to son Eissa back in January, just three months before announcing her split from Al Mana — “She’s looking great and feeling great,” a different source tells People. “Eissa has been with her and he is doing so well. Atlanta was the best place to finish out this tour.”
