Lena Horne Ousts Janet Jackson From Biopic

LATEST: JANET JACKSON has been ousted from a planned biopic on LENA HORNE, after her breast-flashing stunt at the SUPER BOWL.

A spokeswoman for Jackson says the NASTY singer was effectively barred from LENA by Horne and her daughter GAIL LUMET BUCKLEY, who were outraged when the star exposed her breast during the 1 February (04) football final.

Horne refused to return her contract for the film until American TV network ABC guaranteed Jackson was no longer working on the project.

Although ABC bosses refused Horne's demand, Jackson walked out - and was quickly followed by executive producers CRAIG ZADAN and NEIL MERON.

The project has now been left in limbo as a result.

A source at ABC says, "It's sad this had to happen. It was a perfect match."

A spokeswoman for Zadan and Meron says the producers are now looking for another project to do with Jackson, who had planned to re-record some of Horne's songs and even posed as the LADY IS A TRAMP singer in a recent spread for style magazine VANITY FAIR.
