Janet Jackson 'to reveal truth behind infamous 2004 Super Bowl nip slip with Justin Timberlake' in tell-all documentary

JANET Jackson is set to reveal the truth behind her infamous Super Bowl "wardrobe malfunction" with Justin Timberlake in a new documentary.

The documentary titled Janet, will be split over two, two-hour installments and will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the chart-topper's 1982 self-titled debut album.


Fans will see the music icon, 54, discuss her 2004 Super Bowl performance when Justin accidentally exposed her breast.

The doc, which is set to air in 2022, will also see Janet open up about becoming a mother as well as the death of her brother Michael Jackson in 2009 and her dad Joseph in 2018.

TV networks Lifetime and A&E have described the documentary, which was three years in the making, as "an intimate, honest and unfiltered look at her untold story."

Adding to the excitement, the Again songstress has granted access to never-before-seen home videos and the docuseries will feature interviews from her famous friends.

A&E said of the program: "Janet has enjoyed immense success but also seen incredible tragedy.

"She has endured a tumultuous private life in the face of extraordinary public scrutiny.

"With no stone left unturned, JANET lifts the lid on her private life for the very first time and reveals the most intimate moments of the star ever caught on camera."

Janet will serve as executive producer on the documentary alongside Randy Jackson.


News of her docuseries comes weeks after Justin apologized to Britney Spears and Janet for "contributing to the problem of misogyny."

Justin was criticized for past comments he made about his ex-girlfriend Britney, and the way he failed to stand up for Janet after their shocking Super Bowl 2004 performance.

The former boy band member wrote: "I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefitted from a system that condones misogyny and racism.

"I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually, because I care for and respect these women and I know I failed."

In 2004 he caused an international scandal when Janet's breast, adorned with a nipple shield, was exposed by him for about half a second.

What was later referred to as a "wardrobe malfunction" saw CBS fined a record $550,000 by the FTC.

However, Janet was forced to apologize and her career nosedived after the moment, branded "nipplegate," while Justin was invited back four years later to perform again.
