Stylist Claims Justin Timberlake Created Infamous Janet Jackson Wardrobe Malfunction

Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson’s infamous wardrobe malfunction at the 2004 Superbowl is like the gift that keeps on giving. Now, a stylist who worked on Jackson’s outfit for the event claims the whole thing was planned.

In a Page Six exclusive, stylist Wayne Scot Lukas says the whole incident was designed to upstage the Britney Spears, Madonna, and Christina Aguilera kiss from the MTV Video Music Awards that took place months before. Timberlake “insisted on doing something bigger than their performance. He wanted a reveal.”

The original idea that was tossed around was for Timberlake to step on the back of Jackson’s dress to reveal a Sex and the City-inspired pearl G-string. But “the outfit changed a couple of days before, and you saw the magic,” according to Lukas.

“I wouldn’t call it a wardrobe ‘malfunction’ in a million years. It was the most functioning wardrobe in history. As a stylist, it did what it was intended to do,” he told the outlet.

The incident was recently in the headlines again after Timberlake publicly apologized to Jackson. His manager, Johnny Wright, insisted that she had forgiven Timberlake in private “a long time ago.”

As for Lukas, he says he’s planning to tell his story in a tell-all book in the future, with more juicy secrets to be revealed about working in the industry.
