Pop beauty Janet Jackson credits a secret "cowboy" guide with helping her win her battle with depression. The singer even has a tattoo permanently etched on her body to remind her of her troubled spell in her life and the man who saved her. Also acknowledging the contribution boyfriend Jermaine Dupri made towards her rehabilitation, Jackson says. "Jermaine has played a big part in recent years and he still helps me a great deal. "But one of the biggest people, and I will never give his name, was someone that I met back then. "I could easily have taken a darker path to the one I chose. That's why I have this tattoo to remind me of that period of my life. "It was this cowboy who helped me through it all. We became very close. We still talk."
