Rap mogul SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS has defended Janet Jackson's breast-flashing incident, insisting he was happy for his three young sons to see it.

Jackson sparked outrage at 1 February's (04) Super Bowl, when JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE ripped open her bustier at the end of their duet to reveal her naked breast.

And while many have slammed Jackson's actions, Diddy defends, "I think it was disgusting the way they went after her.

"I have three sons; I was very happy they got to see at least one of Janet Jackson's breasts. We talked about it afterward and they're going to be okay.

"I think there's bigger things going on that to go after lynching Janet like that."

Neptunes producer Pharrell Williams adds, "I know what happened at the Super Bowl was a bit much, but I actually know those two people and they've done great things for people around the world.

"Yeah, they got 200,000 complaints at (TV network) CBS, but they wouldn't have gotten those complaints if they didn't have it plastered on the news 24 hours a day."
