Janet Jackson believes she is "guilty of association" with the allegations against her brother Michael Jackson about child sexual abuse.

The 55-year-old singer spoke about her life as the sister of the late pop king, who died in 2009 at the age of 50, and admitted that such a famous surname as hers is accompanied by a very "exhaustive control".

"When you have that last name, there's a lot of scrutiny," she said during the extensive trailer for her new life and career documentary, Janet, which premieres Jan. 28.

Janet Jackon was then asked if she had been affected by allegations of child sexual abuse against Michael. "Yes. Guilty due to correlation. "I guess that's what they call it, right?" He replied.

Michael Jackson was charged with child abuse and acquitted. Janet publicly sided with her brother during the long-running 2005 trial.

In 1993, Michael Jackson was also charged with sexually abusing 13-year-old Jordan Chandler in Neverland Park. This case was never brought to trial, as Jordan's father, Evan, agreed to a $ 15 million settlement.

Other allegations have surfaced since his death, which the Jackson family has repeatedly denied.

According to the synopsis of the new documentary about Janet Jackson, the legendary star will "open the curtain" for the first time of her "turbulent" private life and will talk about the consequences of her appearance in the 2004 Super Bowl.

"Janet has enjoyed great success but she has also lived through incredible tragedies. "He has lived a turbulent private life in the midst of excessive control of public opinion," the documentary's description reads.

"Without leaving any stone unturned, Janet opens the curtain of her privacy for the first time and reveals her most personal moments that the lens has ever captured," it notes.
