Janet Jackson allegedly received a message from Justin Timberlake's manager

Janet Jackson posted her weekly inspirational message to her fans on Twitter on March 28, 2021. "Always choose to heal, not to hurt. To forgive, not to despise. To persevere, not to quit. To smile, not to frown. And to love, not to hate," the post read. According to Page Six, Justin Timberlake's longtime manager Johnny Wright — who used to manage Jackson — allegedly responded to the post with a comment of his own. "You should take this advice and to apply it to your relationship with Justin," he supposedly wrote. A source close to Timberlake told Page Six that the "Cry Me a River" singer was "completely unaware" that Wright posted that comment.

It is unknown if Wright's alleged comment had any affect on Jackson or if she and Timberlake have spoken at all. In an interview with Zane Lowe many moons ago, Timberlake said insisted that he and Jackson had made up, but their relationship has long been rumored to be strained.
