Following the release of the Framing Britney Spears documentary, and calls for Justin Timberlake to issue an apology, the pop singer is speaking out.
Justin came under fire after the release of the documentary due to the way he portrayed Britney during media interviews following their relationship in the early 2000s.
This portrayal immediately prompted calls for Justin to apologize to Britney for any harm he caused her, which contributed to the harassment she received by paparazzi and media in the 2000s.
Justin heard the calls and took to Instagram to issue a statement in which he apologizes, specifically naming Britney Spears and Janet Jackson.
“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,” the statement read in part.
Justin’s wife, Jessica Biel, commented on the post in support of her husband, saying “I love you”.
Justin also seemed to receive support from a number of other notable figures in the comments.
Following the apology, Janet Jackson’s 1986 album “Control” soared to the top of the music charts.
Janet took to Twitter to post a video thanking her fans and listeners for pushing the album to the top of the charts after 35 years.
Thank u 🖤🙏🏽🤗 pic.twitter.com/qSEcON2YoN
