According to Jermaine Jackson's book, "You Are Not Alone: Michael: Through a Brother's Eyes," Madonna dated Janet Jackson's older brother Michael Jackson in the early 1990s. During a dinner between the two, Madonna allegedly criticized Janet, which resulted in Michael backing away from her.

In a 1994 interview, Janet stated she didn't hate Madonna, but she did have "valid reasons" to. During a chat with Kurt Loder, Madonna said she was “mystified” by the whole thing, because she'd "never met the woman" and didn't "know anyone she knows.”
Madonna and Janet Jackson seemingly quashed their beef eventually, as the two have been photographed smiling together. Additionally, Madonna came to Janet’s defense after her 2004 Super Bowl halftime show performance received heavy criticism for its wardrobe malfunction.
