AceShowbiz - Justin Timberlake's Super Bowl LII halftime show is approaching, and there are rumors circulating around the internet saying that NSYNC may have a reunion at the annual championship. Well, it appears that fans of the boyband have to kiss that dream goodbye after Joey Fatone shuts down the rumors.
TMZ recently caught up with the 40-year-old hot dog purveyor and asked whether the reunion rumors were true. "I'm here right now. If I was doing something, I'd be at rehearsals right now, so obviously, there's your proof. Nothing," he told the news outlet. "And there's nothing wrong with that, he's doing his thing."
The New York-born singer also addressed the rumors of Janet Jackson's appearance at the Super Bowl LII, saying that it wasn't true either. "[Justin] is not that kind of person," Joey remarked. "He's not controversial like that. He is in a sense, but he's not in a sense to do it deliberately."
Janet and Justin shared the Super Bowl halftime stage back in 2004, which quickly became one of the most infamous performances of all time after Justin accidentally exposed Janet's bare breast. However, Justin revealed during an interview with Zane Lowe of Beats 1 last week that he and Janet have made peace since the incident.
"I don't know that a lot of people know that," Justin told the New Zealand-born radio DJ. "I mean, I don't think it's my job to do that, because you value the relationship that you do have with people." Justin also said that he wouldn't make the same mistake again at his upcoming performance. "It's just one of those things were you go like, 'Yeah what do you want me to say? We're not going to do that again,' " he said.
Justin will take the stage at the Super Bowl LII on February 4, just two days after the release of his upcoming album "Man of the Woods".
