“Michael shot nights. I shot days. His record company would block off his set so that I couldn’t see what was going on. They didn’t want me on set,” Janet revealed.

“I felt like they were trying to make it very competitive between the two of us,” she added while expressing that it ‘really hurt’ her.

“I felt I was there fighting the fight with him, not to battle him. I wanted it to feel like old times between he and I, and it didn’t. Old times had long passed,” she shared.
