Different lifestyles have driven the longtime couple apart, a mutual friend of them has said.

After almost seven years of dating, and have called it quits, US Weekly exclusively reports. The music mogul's friends are quoted as telling people "it's over". A source chimes in, "They have been moving in different directions for a while."

Meanwhile, a mutual friend of Janet and Jermaine says, "You shouldn't mix business with pleasure. Janet felt their lives were too crossed and they should have kept things separate," when referring to Jermaine's contribution on her last two albums. The friend continues telling US Weekly, "Jermaine likes to be out there, mingling with everybody, and Janet's more shy."

Speculation that Janet and Jermaine are no longer a couple first emerged after he was a no-show at the memorial service held to remember the life and career of her late brother back on July 7. At that time, a friend claimed Jermaine skipped the memorial because he "doesn't attend funerals."

Neither Janet nor Jermaine has addressed report of their separation. Their representatives also haven't commented on the matter just yet.

In the meantime, Janet reportedly has got back to work, filming drama-comedy "", which is the sequel to 's 2007 comedy hit "". In the flick she will reprise her role as Patricia. Beside acting, Janet is said to have taken care for Michael's three children; Prince Michael Jackson Jr., Prince Michael Jackson II, and Paris Michael Katherine Jackson.
