Janet Jackson Says in New Doc Michael Jackson Bullied Her About Weight

Janet Jackson Documentary (Lifetime)

Janet Jackson reveals her late brother Michael Jackson made fun of her weight, as she shares details about her life in the documentary Janet Jackson premiering Jan. 28 on A&E and Lifetime.

“There were times when Mike used to tease me and call me names. Pig, horse, slut, or hog, cow,” Janet says in the four-hour film, according to the Daily Mail.

“He would laugh about it, and I’d laugh too, but then there was some­where down inside that it would hurt,” she continued. “When you have somebody say you’re too heavy, it affects you.”

Despite the taunts, Janet says out of all of her siblings she was closest to Michael after Randy.

The “Control” singer also spoke in the film’s trailer about how child sexual abuse allegations against Michael affected her own career.

“Guilty by association. I guess that’s what they call that, right?” she said.

In addition to Janet’s comments and home videos, the two-part documentary features interviews with Samuel L. Jackson, Jermaine Dupri, Ciara, Teyana Taylor, Tyler Perry, Mariah Carey, and there’s an appearance by Justin Timberlake.

The documentary was filmed over the course of five years and shows Jackson as a mother and artist behind-the-scenes.

The two-night event will air Jan. 28 and 29 in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Janet’s debut album, “Janet Jackson.”
