    Dupri, who was noticeable absent from Michael Jackson's memorial last week, produced several of Janet's recent tracks on her last two albums – which could have contributed to the split, according to the mag.

    "You shouldn't mix business with pleasure," a friend of the former couple told the mag. "Janet felt their lives were too crossed and they should have kept things separate."

    In addition to her break-up, another source said Janet is still in the midst of mourning for her brother.
