Fashion designer Janet Jackson once denies the claim in a new document that he and his co-star changed outfits at the 2004 Super Bowl performance with Justin Timberlake
Janet Jackson’s one-time stylist, Wayne Scott Lucas, denies allegations made in the New York Times documentary “Glitch: Undressing Janet Jackson,” that he and Jackson changed the outfit she wore in her infamous 2004 Super Bowl performance with Justin Timberlake.
Lukas, who spoke Monday with Access Hollywood, said he did not appear in the documentary (which airs on FX and Hulu) at the request of Jackson, who described him as a “friend.”
The document explores details from the February 1, 2004 halftime show, in which Timberlake revealed Jackson’s breasts in an alleged wardrobe malfunction.
The Latest: One-time designer Janet Jackson and Wayne Scott Lucas deny allegations, made in the New York Times documentary “Glitch: Dressing Up Janet Jackson,” that he and Jackson changed the outfit she wore in her infamous 2004 Super Bowl performance with Justin Timberlake.
MTV exec Salli Frattini claimed in the documentary that Jackson and Lucas altered producer-approved outfits prior to the event, adding a nipple cover; and that Timberlake, upon arrival, was escorted by Jackson’s camp to have a “little talk” with Jackson and Lucas that “lasted for minutes.”
Frattini added, “My intuition was that there was a private conversation between wardrobe designers and artists where someone thought this would be a good idea and it backfired.”
Lucas said in response, “He did exactly what I did [he] He was supposed to ‘assemble a solid costume,’ referring to his long service with Jackson in the aftermath of the accident.
“If I’m working with someone who is a dancer, you should be able to dance in a wardrobe and you should never break down,” Lucas told the show. “I stand 100 percent by my story that I did exactly what I was supposed to do, what I was set for, and if I hurt my boyfriend, I wouldn’t work with Janet for six years after the Super Bowl. I would have been fired that day.

Lucas said the performance was supposed to be racy, but there was no intention of showing actual nudity.
Lucas said he did not appear in the documentary (which airs on FX and Hulu) at the request of Jackson, who described him as a “friend.”
Lucas said the producers were irresponsible in airing Jackson’s release live.
“You were never supposed to see a movement in which the breast or part of the body came out,” he said. They were supposed to cut black… someone didn’t press the button. Someone did not protect my friend.
Lucas said the performance was supposed to be racy, but that there was no intention of showing actual nudity.
“You were supposed to get the idea, ‘I’m going to make you naked by the end of this song,'” he said, “No one was supposed to be naked.” “And I’ve never said that before.”
Lucas said he plans to star in the A&E documentary Janet, which is scheduled to air in January
In response to Lucas’ statements, Fetini said: “This is a false statement, according to all my previously written comments and broadcasts now.”
Lucas said Timberlake blamed him for the fallout from the accident when he coined the phrase “wardrobe malfunction,” referring to his devotion to his profession.
wardrobe malfunction? He said. I was a professional fashion designer, $10,000 a day at the time. I can’t fail.
Lucas said he’s spoken with Jackson since the document came out, and plans to star in the A&E documentary Janet, scheduled to air in January.
