Following the premiere of NYT Presents: Malfunction: The Dressing Down of Janet Jackson — the entertainer's former stylist Wayne Scot Lukas told Page Six about what the entertainer, 55, thinks of the new Hulu special.

“She wants that documentary to go away," the fashion consultant said. "She didn’t ask for a ‘Free Janet’ documentary. She’s not interested.”

According to Lukas, Jackson specifically requested that those who have worked with her, not participate in the tell-all. “She asked us not to do it. She wants to tell her own story,” he explained to the outlet.

The personal fashion consultant did reveal that he has sat down for interviews for the "Rhythm Nation" singer's own documentary slated to premiere in January 2022 — but he did not speak about the Super Bowl mishap.

“They’re going to discuss it, and she’ll have her final say. I’m not privy to her final say, I just need to be aware of my story and I’ve been loyal for 18 years,” Lukas revealed.

Despite Lukas still getting the blame for the outfit malfunction during the headline making performance, he admitted that he was hoping someone would come out and clear his name.

“I really wish Janet or someone could come out now and say, ‘Leave my friend Wayne alone, he didn’t do anything wrong…’ as long as you keep me in the mix, fingers keep being pointed at me,” the fashion expert said.

As OK! previously reported, Lukas recently said that he did "exactly" what he was "supposed to do" when it came to putting together Jackson's halftime look. He added, “If I would’ve hurt my friend, I wouldn’t have worked with Janet for six years after the Super Bowl. I would have been fired that day.”
