Posted By on August 25, 2008

    As we previously reported [read here], rumors continue to circle that Jermaine Dupri was asked to leave his position at Island Def Jam's urban division, and until now, Def Jam had made no comment. Def Jam is now speaking out about the rumors…Laura Swanson, SVP Media & Artist Relations for Def Jam, issued a statement to Sohh saying "There is absolutely no truth to the rumors regarding Jermaine Dupri.
They are completely untrue."

    As we previously reported, itsthereal.com even made a spoof news report [watch here] that stated many "reasons" why Def Jam may have asked JD to step down.
