What happened?: Last year, Jermaine Dupri either resigned or got fired from his position as the President of Island Def Jam. Although he didn't want to elaborate on the situation, he did speak on his relationship with his former mentor L.A. Reid with Essence after his Def Jam tenure was over. He claimed he hadn't spoken to L.A. in three months and said, "I saw a side of [L.A.] that I had never seen before and that to me was a jealous side."
Complex says: In the same interview, Dupri also compares himself to Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader and blames Reid for making him that way. Let's just say that their relationship is kinda complicated.
