Justin Timberlake may want to muzzle his longtime manager Johnny Wright. A source close to the singer confirmed that he wasn’t unaware of a recent comment Wright made to Janet Jackson via social media to forgive Timberlake for his role in their infamous 2004 Super Bowl “wardrobe malfunction” blunder.
“Justin was not aware of his comment to her. Johnny did this all on his own,” the source disclosed to Page Six.
Jackson posted her weekly Sunday inspirational message to followers encouraging them to “always choose to heal, not hurt” and “to forgive, not to despise.” Wright who once managed Jackson, as well as Timberlake’s ex Britney Spears, allegedly shot back, “You should take this advice and apply it to your relationship with Justin.”
Johnny’s comment comes almost two months after Timberlake officially apologized to Jackson and Spears “for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right.
“I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism.”
A source close to Justin Timberlake confirmed when the apology was made that it was, “really from the heart.”
