So So Def founder and Janet Jackson’s love interest
Jermaine Dupri, has resigned as president of the Grammy’s Atlanta chapter, due
to Jackson being banned from the Grammy Awards.
Jackson was to present a special award to Luther
Vandross, but was allegedly rebuked, after it was determined Vandross could
not attend due to his medical condition, after suffering a stroke.
"I didn’t want to be a part of something
that’s not treating people in the right light," Dupri said in a statement.
"I feel like what’s going on with Janet is unfair."
Justin Timberlake, who performed with Jackson
during the now infamous Superbowl Halftime Show, tore off the clothing that
exposed Jackson’s right breast for less than a second.
He is still scheduled to perform.
Timberlake insists that he had no prior knowledge
that Jackson’s bare breast would be exposed and claimed he thought that a bustier
would still be underneath.
Timberlake added that he "didn’t need the
negative publicity" that was accompanied the incident.
Jackson has apologized in written and verbal
statements, saying that the Superbowl incident simply went too far.
Meanwhile, a Tennessee woman is attempting to
cash in on the debacle.
The woman filed a lawsuit in Knoxville’s federal
court, alleging that Jackson and Timberlake owe millions of people monetary
compensation for the stunt.
The picture of Jackson’s breast has become the
most sought after item in the history of the Internet.
Search for the pictures topped over 200 million
according to Lycos.com, topping the September 11 attacks on the United States.
