Bette Midler Says Justin Timberlake Owes ‘Janet Jackson’s Boob’ an Apology

Hocus Pocus star, Bette Midler is weighing on the recent drama Justin Timberlake caused with his wife, Jessica Biel, but not in the way fans expect. In case you missed it, the “Cry Me A River” artist recently came under fire for publicly holding hands with a woman who is not his wife. Timberlake is currently filming a movie called Palmer. While out in a bar with his female costar, Alisha Wainwright, Timberlake was spotted holding hands with her.

Photos surface of Justin Timberlake and Alisha Wainwright

Of course, it didn’t take long for photos to surface of Timberlake and Wainwright. The pair are holding hands in one shot and in another Wainwright’s hand rests casually on Timberlake’s knee. What might have been viewed as completely platonic amongst single people, immediately sparked controversy because Timberlake is married. Timberlake has been married to his wife, Biel, for seven years. The couple also share a child together; a four-year-old named Silas Timberlake. Though many of JT’s fans were convinced the behavior was completely harmless, the rumor mill continued to be fed until Timberlake felt compelled to personally address the situation.

Timberlake apologizes to wife, Jessica Biel, on Instagram

On December 5, 2019, Timberlake took to his Instagram page to address the situation with a statement. “I stay away from gossip as much as I can, but for my family, I feel it is important to address recent rumors that are hurting the people that I love. A few weeks ago, I displayed a strong lapse in judgment—but let me be clear—nothing happened between me and my costar,” the “Can’t Stop The Feeling!” singer declared adamantly, maintaining that he was not unfaithful to his wife.

The singer wants to set a better example for his son

Timberlake continued on to share with his nearly 57 million followers that he was under the influence of alcohol “I drank way too much that night and I regret my behavior. I should have known better. This is not the example I want to set for my son. I apologize to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be. This was not that. I am incredibly proud to be working on Palmer. Looking forward to continuing to make this movie and excited for people to see it,” the 38-year-old concluded, sharing his excitement for continuing to film the project.

Bette Middler weighs in on Twitter

Of course, many people felt compelled to weigh in on the situation, and other celebrities were no exception. One of the most vocal people was none other than Midler, singer and actor extraordinaire. Taking to her Twitter page, she wrote a message to her followers about the situation. “Justin Timberlake publicly apologized to his wife for holding hands with another actress after having too much to drink, but sez nothing else happened. Who cares? He held another woman’s hand, BFD. So when is Janet Jackson’s boob gonna get an apology? #JusticeForJanet,” Middler tweeted out.

Will Timberlake ever apologize to Janet Jackson publically

Of course, Middler was referring to the infamous 2004 wardrobe malfunction that occurred during the halftime performance at the Super Bowl. While performing “Rock Your Body” alongside Janet Jackson, Timberlake accidentally ripped off a portion of her top, revealing her breast. Jackson dealt with massive backlash following the situation and while Timberlake has maintained that he and the “Made For Now” singer have made peace, he has never publically apologized to her. After 15 years, we highly doubt Timberlake will give Jackson a public apology. But, stranger things have happened.
