Janet Jackson is keeping fans guessing about her marital status after showing off a massive yellow diamond ring on her wedding finger - and then refusing to deny reports she's the new MRS JERMAINE DUPRI.

The pop superstar spent Monday (29MAR04) and Tuesday (30MAR04) promoting her new album DAMITA JO on America's top TV chat shows - and she flashed her 15-karat ring in each interview.

But, when probed about the huge ring, a coy Jackson revealed, "I'm saying nothing."

The pop star admitted she kept her marriage to RENE ELIZONDO a secret for years, until the paid divorced in 2000.

She adds, "I said 'no' then when the answer was 'yes'."
