Justin Timberlake apologized to Janet Jackson and Britney Spears, acknowledging he "failed" both women in the past.

Fans took to social media to slam Justin for using Britney and Janet to reach the top.

The "SexyBack" singer faced backlash following the recent premiere of Hulu documentary "Framing Britney Spears."

The documentary chronicled Britney's rise to pop superstardom, her spectacular 2008 meltdown, and her ongoing conservatorship battle with her father.

The film briefly explored how Justin capitalized on his 2002 break-up with Britney by boasting about taking the pop superstar's virginity and suggesting she cheated on him with his hit song "Cry Me A River", which featured a Britney lookalike in the music video.

Two years later, Justin hit headlines again for his role in Janet Jackson's Super Bowl Halftime Show debacle, as he ripped off part of her corset and exposed her breast.

Despite reports that Justin and Janet practiced the planned "wardrobe malfunction” in the days leading up to the halftime show, Timberlake distanced himself from Janet -- leaving her to take all the heat, which harmed her career.

Now, the father-of-two has claims he has seen the error of his ways and he spoke out about his white male privilege in a candid Instagram post on Friday.

In the post, he writes, "I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right.

"I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism.

"I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually, because I care for and respect these women and I know I failed."

"I also feel compelled to respond, in part, because everyone involved deserves better and most importantly, because this is a larger conversation that I wholeheartedly want to be part of and grow from...," he adds, before blaming the culture of the entertainment industry for enabling such behavior.

"The industry is flawed. It sets men, especially white men, up for success. It's designed this way," Timberlake continues.

"As a man in a privileged position I have to be vocal about this. Because of my ignorance, I didn't recognize it for all that it was while it was happening in my own life but I do not want to ever benefit from others being pulled down again."

He concludes: "I have not been perfect in navigating all of this throughout my career. I know this apology is a first step and doesn't absolve the past. I want to take accountability for my own missteps in all of this as well as be part of a world that uplifts and supports.

"I care deeply about the wellbeing of the people I love and have loved. I can do better and I will do better."

Britney and Janet have yet to respond to the apology.

Michael Jordan may be an icon and a legend in the eyes of many, but multiple sources say he's not the nicest guy on earth.

Rapper Chamillionaire shared an encounter he had with the billionaire at an auction of Jordan's basketball memorabilia years ago.

Chamillionaire grew up in Washington, DC, and like most boys his age in the 1980s and '90s, he idolized the Chicago Bulls legend.

According to Sportscasting.com, when he saw Jordan taking photos with others at an auction event, he approached the superstar and asked for a picture.

The 41-year-old rapper had just dropped $7,000 on a Jordan jersey for charity, but Jordan cursed Chamillionaire out and told him he wouldn't pose for a photo unless he ponied up more cash.

According to the rapper, Jordan told him, "You pay $15,000 right now for a jersey from me and I'll take a picture with you."

Disheartened by the encounter, Chamillionaire walked away without paying the $15,000.

Chamillionaire has done well for himself since his days as a hand-to-mouth rap artist with hit songs "Ridin'" and "Turn It Up."

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Chamillionaire has an estimated net worth of $50 million. He founded his own record label in 2004, and his investments include a self-driving automation tech company which was sold to General Motors in 2016.

Earlier this week, Jada Pinkett Smith denied allegations that she manipulated August Alsina into a relationship with her husband Will Smith's blessings.

The 27-year-old "No Love" singer made headlines when he sat down for an interview with New York radio personality Angela Yee about his alleged affair with the 48-year-old star.

"I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation," August said. "Due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership that they spoke on several times, and not involving romanticism, he gave me his blessing."

August explained the deep emotional bond he'd developed with the older woman who convinced him it was love.

"I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life. I truly and really, really deeply loved, and have a ton of love for her. I devoted myself to it, I gave my full self to it. So much so to the point that I can die right now and be OK with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody. I really loved the person that I experienced that (with) and know what (that feels) like - if some people never get that in this lifetime."

How did August end up in a situation that most men would not find themselves in? August appears to be an emotionally weak man who struggles with self-esteem and a desire to be loved by a narcissistic mother figure.

Jada, a mother-of-two children who practically raised themselves, has admitted to being a narcissist.

Narcissism is a mental disorder characterized by a preoccupation with self. A narcissist puts her own aspirations, needs, success, and personal preferences above others.

It is important for parents to teach their children how to spot a narcissist to avoid falling into their trap. A vulnerable teen or man who is dumped by a narcissist can be left feeling depressed, confused, disoriented, lethargic, or suicidal.

Vulnerable people like August are like fish bait to a narcissist once she gets her hook into them.

Which brings us to the first sign that a woman may be a narcissist.

1. Narcissists are very attractive

Most narcissists are very attractive people. They are physically stunning, beautiful and irresistible. Their beauty makes it easier for people to gravitate towards them.

They are experts at spotting prey in a crowded room. Once they meet, they will know within minutes if your son is emotionally weak and vulnerable. They will prey on his weakness and his strong desire to be loved.

That's why it's important to teach your son the basics - how to spot a narcissist at an early age.

If your son has a healthy, loving, secure upbringing - half of the battle is won. You must constantly tell your minor son how much he is loved - until he gets tired of hearing it. Tell him you love him by your words and actions. Begin early, before he is 7 and has developed a  personality.

2. Narcissists love being the center of attention

Warn your son that a narcissist is usually the most popular woman in the room. She can be a celebrity, an executive, professional athlete, or CEO of her own company. Or she can be the girl next door.

What sets them apart from others is their ability to draw a crowd. Once she gets her hooks into your son she will use him, drain him, and then dispose of him like a piece of trash.

3. Love bombing

Love bombing is the narcissist's most potent weapon. That's how she gets her hooks into your son. It begins within hours after the exchange of phone numbers.

Narcissists are extremely manipulative and dangerous. Once they have a victim on the hook they will do everything to make sure he stays there. Communication technology makes it easier for a predator to hook her prey. She begins by showering him with text messages and/or phone calls.

The texts will be excessive - multiple texts per hour. Sometimes 100 texts per day. The weak-minded, vulnerable man will be flattered by all the attention from a celebrity. But the healthy, secure man will not be impressed with her excess text messages. He will be aware that something is wrong.

Love bombs can also take the form of notes left on the bathroom mirror or a car windshield. Flowers delivered to his job is a favorite tactic of a narcissist. Her goal is to get him to spend more time with her, and less time with others.

While exhilarating at first, love bombing can feel like being stalked. A weak, vulnerable man won't think he is being stalked. The lavish attention will be so intoxicating, he will invite the predator to move in with him because he craves the nonstop attention. Unfortunately, it doesn't last.

"If you're feeling that something just isn't right about the person or your relationship, these constant reminders of "how good you are together" — when you suspect that you really aren't — can be an effort to keep you tethered. It's often the first line used by a potential abuser."

Sometimes there are "love at first sight" stories that end well. The relationship builds quickly, but stays at a healthy pace that is comfortable for both parties involved.

A relationship with a narcissist rarely ends well - unless she's involved with another narcissist or a man who has more wealth and power than she does. Then she will form a "life partnership" with him and use him to lure in her victims.

Stay tuned for part 2 of Teaching your son how to spot a narcissist.

Screen grabs: YouTube

Love Is Blind cast member Carlton Morton threatened suicide after social media users refused to support him when he came out as bisexual.

Love is Blind is produced by power couple Nick and Vanessa Lachey. The show followed 20 couples who meet for the first time on a blind date. The couples speak to each other through walls before meeting face to face.

If they click, their engagement is fast tracked and they proceed to get married or abandon their partner at the alter.

Contestants Carlton and Diamond Jack did not make it to the alter after he confessed that he was bisexual.

Diamond was upset that Carlton kept his secret lifestyle from her. According to theJasmineBrand.com, Carlton and Diamond forgave each other on the reunion special.

Carlton's confession didn’t bring him the attention and press coverage that he had hoped for. Oprah and Ellen Degeneres didn't call him to book interviews.

He went off the deep end when the Black LGBT and T media accused him of using the bisexual lifestyle for attention.

The overly emotional Carlton took to social media to complain that his "celebrity friends” abandoned him after he came out.

Feeling alone and depressed, he wrote a series of suicidal notes to manipulate his social media followers into expressing false sympathy for him.

In a goodbye message on his Instagram story, Morton wrote:

"Today is one of those days where I don't want to be here. I feel extremely alone and unsupported. I've cried for help since Feb. 13. No one cares."

In another post, he wrote: "Goodbye everyone."

As a result of his Diva antics, the hashtag #BisexualMenExist trended on Twitter.com.

Celebrities reacted to rapper Lil Boosie's bizarre and disrespectful video rant about Dwyane Wade's gender confused child, Zaya Wade, 12. Boosie was heavily criticized for telling Wade not to cut his child's d*ck off.

Zaya's older brother, Zaire Wade, 18, responded to Boosie, saying the rapper had his facts wrong.

Among the celebrities responding to Boosie's toxic rant was Wade's narcissistic wife, Gabrielle Union, 47, who seems to be enjoying all the attention.

Many believe Union pushed the weaker Wade into exploiting his emotionally troubled son for their own selfish benefits.

Union responded to Boosie's rant, saying she covers all of Zaya's haters in the blood of Jesus and will move forward in love and light, or something to that effect.

If you're wondering why Wade won't shut up about his dysfunctional family, it's because he has a documentary coming out on Sunday. The documentary is all about him, of course.

50 Cent faked being overcome by his emotions during the unveiling of his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last month.

The "In Da Club" rapper, real name Curtis Jackson, received the 2,686th star, and was saluted at the ceremony by his longtime collaborators and mentors, Dr. Dre and Eminem, as well as his girlfriend Jamira Haines (pictured above), and co-stars LaLa Anthony and Joseph Sikora, comedian Michael Blackmon and more.

During the special presentation, 50 stepped up to the podium to thank his guests for their support, and he appeared to fight back tears as he paused and took deep breaths midway through his speech. Fiddy later admitted he faked his emotions to win "cool points" on social media.

The 44-year-old rapper and actor admits he was nervous ahead of the Walk of Fame ceremony, but the big emotional moment, which prompted the crowd to cheer him on, was just for dramatic effect, because he thought it would make him look cool, WENN.com reported.

50 also said he didn't prepare his speech in advance, so pretending to grow emotional helped to buy him time.

He confessed that expressing his emotions doesn't come easily - which is typical of sociopaths such as narcissists.

"I was working on that... to be emotional...," he told ABC's The View. "And when I got there, I knew that when I was really under pressure, that I should just (pause and pretend to take a few breaths)... and I knew that that would give me just a little bit of cool points for getting emotional at that point."

The media mogul said he regrets not being more prepared for his big moment.

He told daytime talk show Strahan, Sara & Keke: "I wasn't really excited about it until everybody was there, until they had Em and Dre... and I was like, 'Yo, I shoulda wrote something down!'"

Meghan Markle is known for being difficult to work with. Soon after she married Prince Harry in London, some of the Royal Family's longtime staffers departed the Palace in droves.

Now comes word that Meghan, 38, is "actively looking for a manager or agent" for "future projects."

A source tells Us Weekly that the former Suits actress is considering returning to Hollywood after giving up her C-list career to marry Harry in 2018.

Meghan, who is currently living with Harry and their son Archie Harrison in Canada, convinced Harry to "step back" from their royal duties to jumpstart her acting career and "work to become financially independent."

"It can be a manager or an agent, but she's reaching out to people to find someone represent her for future professional projects."

But gossipmongers wonder what happened to Meghan's old agent? She reportedly had a team of agents and publicists? Did they all quit?

Though Netflix expressed interest in Meghan, other studios don't share their excitement. They say Meghan's acting skills are mediocre at best.

American media mogul Oprah Winfrey also declined to work with Meghan, presumably out of respect for Queen Elizabeth. Meghan reportedly took the rejection hard. She gave her first exclusive interview to Ellen Degeneres as a snub to Oprah.

A friend told DailyMail.com that Meghan informed her close friends quitting the royal family is the best thing that could ever happen to Prince Harry. The friend said "it was her love for him that made this possible."

"She said that like her, his spirit was being crushed and she simply couldn't stand to see him suffer anymore," the friend added.

Rihanna's ex-boyfriend, Hassan Jameel is scrubbing the Internet of all photos of them together.

Robert Littal, the founder of BlackSportsOnline blog and co-host of TMZ Sports, said Jameel contacted him through his attorney, asking him to take down a photo of him and Rihanna together.

"Rihanna's billionaire ex just hit me with a request to take down a pic of him and Riri that has been up since 2017," Littal tweeted on Tuesday. "A whole three years, I don't think he is taking the breakup well."

In response to a follower, Littal tweeted: "It was more of a threat than a request lol. I am not getting in legalish [sic] with a billionaire, got to know when to pick your battles."

Littal went on to say he was "honored" that Jameel reached out to threaten him with a lawsuit. "The story in question didn't even do numbers," he said, implying that no one cared about who Rihanna was dating.

Rihanna, who has a history of failed relationships with men, dated Jameel for nearly three years - a personal record for her.

She previously dated Chris Brown, Drake, Travis Scott, and A$AP Rocky. She is rumored to have reunited with Rocky after he returned from a concert tour Sweden.

A grinning Prince Harry arrived in Canada, leaving his royal life behind after completing his royal duties in London, England.

According to published reports, Harry purchased a ticket on a British Airways Boeing 747 for the 10-hour flight from London, arriving in Victoria, British Columbia late Monday night.

The 35-year-old prince then took a West Jet turboprop plane for the short 15-minute hop to Vancouver Island. He was accompanied by three royal protection officers on his flight.

Harry's wife, formerly Her Royal Highness Meghan Markle, was not at the airport to meet Harry. She was spotted at the same airport days earlier to meet a friend flying in from mainland Vancouver.

A 3-car convoy ferried Harry and his entourage for the 10-minute drive to a gated mega-mansion where Meghan is staying with their 8-month-old son Archie Harrison.

The $14 million waterfront mansion is owned by a Russian oligarch with links to the Ukrainian government.

Friends say Harry cautioned Meghan not to get too happy in the luxury mansion as they are downsizing to more reasonable accommodations.

Sources say the 38-year-old mum of one hired a team of agents and publicists to book future TV and film roles for her. Gossip mongers say Meghan thought being in service to the Queen was beneath her.

Meghan was seen taking a leisurely stroll with her two rescue dogs in the woods near the Vancouver mansion as two royal protection officers walked a few steps behind her.

She struggled to carry baby son Archie in a baby carrier while controlling her dogs on leashes. Concerned moms on social media criticized Meghan for carrying her son so precariously with one strap of the carrier slipping off her shoulder.

Harry is expected to return to London for more official engagements, but Meghan will not be by her husband's side.
