Janet's Flash Prompts Questions Over Lena Horne Movie

Subscribe to Janet Jackson alerts

Janet Jackson's breast-bearing SUPER BOWL stunt has reportedly sparked yet another fallout - this time with legendary singer and actress Lena HORNE.

Jackson sparked outrage in her native America when Justin Timberlake ripped open her bustier to reveal her ample chest at the end of their performance together at the 1 February (04) American football final in Texas.

And while the move sparked outrage across the country and tougher censorship regulations, Jackson's role as Horne in a TV musical biopic called LENA is also reportedly on shaky ground.

Sources tell America's PEOPLE magazine that Horne and her camp are so offended by the flesh-flashing incident, they don't want Jackson portraying her.

According to the publication, Jackson learned of the news just after the March (04) issue of Vanity Fair hit stands, featuring the NASTY singer in a photo spread as Horne.

A spokesperson for the project's producers Craig Zadan and NEIL MERON has refused to address Jackson's status, simply stating, "Nothing has changed."
