He has issued a new statement...

Justin Timberlake has issued a statement apologising to both Britney Spears and Janet Jackson.

The American artist came under criticism following the release of new documentary Framing Britney Spears, who cast fresh light on their time in one another's lives.

Criticised for his behaviour, the discourse also touched on his actions following the infamous Super Bowl 'nipple incident' with Janet Jackson.

In a new move, Justin Timberlake has issued a full statement apologising to both women, for his actions and for failing to push back against the music industry culture that surrounded him.

Acknowledging his sense of privilege, he admits: "I have not been perfect..."

He ends: "I can do better and I will do better."

Here's the statement in full:
