Janet Jackson says her boyfriend, Jermaine Dupri, didn't mind when she packed on a reported 60 pounds for a film role, according to People.com.
In fact, "He loved it," Jackson, said on Friday's "Ellen DeGeneres Show."
"He likes my true self," Jackson told DeGeneres, according to People.com. "It's unconditional love there, so he was always grabbing my extra stuff and looking into my eyes and telling me that he loves me and it [the weight] needs love too, and then he'd kiss me and smile at me."
"That's adorable," DeGeneres said.
"It really was," Jackson said, "and I never had that before in a relationship."
She added that when she was gaining the weight, "the big thing for me to eat was a hot-fudge sundae from 31 Flavors."
