In July, Les Moonves, the chairman, president, and CEO of CBS Corporation, was accused of sexual misconduct by six women, and, according to various reports, he will soon depart the network with a severance package of $100 million in stock (that'll teach him!).

HuffPost's sources said that they felt that Moonves "played a large part" in how the public perceived Jackson in the aftermath of an event that significantly damaged her career.

Gay sex has always been taboo in conservative India - particularly in rural areas where homophobia is widespread. The court had previously reinstated the ban in 2013 after four years of decriminalisation.

Back in 2004, Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake's infamous Super Bowl halftime performance ended with what both entertainers claimed was an accidental boob flash due to a wardrobe malfunction.

Moonves even went as far as ordering Viacom properties VH1 and MTV and all Viacom-owned radio stations to stop playing Jackson's songs and music videos, which consequently affected the sales of her album "Damita Jo", which was released just a month after the Super Bowl.

During the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show, Justin Timberlake ripped away Janet Jackson's top and briefly exposed her breast to a big television audience.

CBS and MTV, which produced the program, faced a wave of backlash following the incident, which both Jackson and Timberlake called an accident, in addition to a $550,000 Federal Communications Commission fine. While Jackson was made to give an apology, this reportedly wasn't enough for Moonves, who was convinced that the stunt was intentional. Timberlake, however, was able to perform after he allegedly offered a tearful apology for the incident, according to various sources HuffPost spoke with who were familiar with the matter. Meanwhile, Timberlake returned to the Super Bowl stage in 2018. Another person close to the situation reports that the CEO said that "heads were going to roll" at Simon & Schuster.

An unnamed source at CBS told the Huffington Post that Moonves said "How the fuck did she slip through?" when he learned about the deal. Moonves is now reported to be negotiating his exit from the broadcast conglomerate.
