2004 SuperBowl incident

Jackson's right breast was exposed while she was performing with Justin Timberlake at the 2004 SuperBowl. A fine of 550,000 dollars was slapped on TV network CBS by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission officials, who said that they broke indecency rules. However, a federal court subsequently ruled that CBS would not have to pay the fine, as they were not responsible for Jackson's actions, reports the Daily Star.
